Surah Fussilat (41) 11/05/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Surah Fussilat (41)
The attitude of those who oppose revelation
41:5. They say: “Our hearts are under veils, (concealed) from that to which you invite us, and in our ears is a deafness, and between us and you is a screen: so do what you will; for us, we shall do (what we will!)”
The coverings of the hearts, the deafness of the ears and the hanging of the veils are used simply to indicate their own determined rejection of the Truth. They resolved neither to open their hearts, lest the Truth should enter them, nor to lend their ears so that they might even hear the preaching of the Prophet. In fact, it was their own act which brought about that consequence. May Allah protect us from being biased against the Truth.
Cross reference
17:46. and we put coverings over their hearts (and minds) lest they should understand the Qur’an, and deafness into their ears: when thou dost commemorate thy Lord and Him alone In the Qur’an, they turn on their backs, fleeing (from the truth).
Continues tomorrow …..InshaAllah
Salaam / Peace
