Beware of the Hardness of the Heart!

 

Beware of the Hardness of the Heart, for it can lead you to the Fire. So protect your heart from becoming hard and all that which may case it to harden, and beware of turning away from the admonition of Allâh, the Most High.

 

 

“Has not the time come for the hearts of those who believe to be affected by Allâh’s Reminder (this Qur’ân) and that which has been revealed of the truth, lest they become as those who received the Scripture before, and the term was prolonged for them and so their hearts were hardened? And many of them were rebellious, disobedient (fâsiqoon)” (57:16)

 

 

It has been mentioned in explanation of this verse, which has been reported by Abû Hazim, that Amir ibn Abdullah ibn az-Zubayr related to him (i.e. Aboo Haazim)  that his father informed him that only four years had passed between the time of their acceptance of Islâm and the revelation of this verse, through which Allâh was reproaching them:

 

 “….lest they become as those who received the Scripture before, and the term was prolonged for them and so their hearts were hardened? And many of them were rebellious, disobedient (fâsiqoon)” (57:16)

(sahîh in Sunan Ibn Mâjah).

 

 

Ibn ‘Abbâs said in explanation of this verse,

 “They became inclined to this world and turned away from the admonition of Allâh”

 (al Baghawi mentions in his tafsîr)

 

[Book: Weeping from the fear of Allah, page-9]
