The parable of those who reject Faith is as if one were to shout Like a goat-herd, to things that listen to nothing but calls and cries: Deaf, dumb, and blind, they are void of wisdom.
“[as the likeness of] one
who shouts to beasts who cannot hear anything but sounds and do not understand the
meaning: thus is their predicament” (Tafsir Kashani, pg. 80)
