Translation

We have explained in detail in this Qur'an, for the benefit of mankind, every kind of similitude: but man is, in most things, contentious.

Tafsir

And verily We have dispensed, We have explained, for mankind in this Qur'aan [an example] of every kind of similitude (min kulli mathalin is an adjective qualifying an omitted clause, in other words, '[We have dispensed therein] a similitude from every kind of similitude), that they may be admonished. But man is most disputatious, [he is] most contentious in matters of falsehood (jadalan is a specification derived from [al-insaan, 'man'] the subject of kaana) in other words, the meaning is that the disputatiousness of man is what can be found in him most.
