Ayah

أَوَمَن كَانَ مَيۡتًا فَأَحۡيَيۡنَٰهُ وَجَعَلۡنَا لَهُۥ نُورًا يَمۡشِى بِهِۦ فِى ٱلنَّاسِ كَمَن مَّثَلُهُۥ فِى ٱلظُّلُمَٰتِ لَيۡسَ بِخَارِجٍ مِّنۡهَا ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ زُيِّنَ لِلۡكَٰفِرِينَ مَا كَانُواْ يَعۡمَلُونَ

Translation

Can he who was dead, to whom We gave life, and a light whereby he can walk amongst men, be like him who is in the depths of darkness, from which he can never come out? Thus to those without faith their own deeds seem pleasing.<br/>

Tafsir

The following was revealed regarding Aboo Jahl and others: Why, is he who was dead, through unbelief, and We gave him life, through guidance, and appointed for him a light by which to walk among people, distinguishing thereby the truth from falsehood - this [light] being faith - as him whose likeness (ka-man mathaluhu: mathal, 'likeness', is extra; in other words, [read] ka-man huwa, 'as him who') is in darkness whence he cannot emerge? - and this is the disbeliever - No! So, in the same way that faith has been adorned for believers, what the disbelievers have been doing, in the way of disbelief and acts of disobedience, has been adorned for them.
