THE INCREASING INSENSITIVITY OF
ONE'S EYES, EARS, AND HEARTS

They say [to Mohammed]: "Our hearts are covered up against what you call us to, and there is a heaviness in our ears. There is a screen between us and you. So act-we are certainly acting." (Qur'an, 41:5)

God has sealed up their hearts and hearing, and over their eyes is a blindfold. They will have a terrible punishment. (Qur'an, 2:7)

Some of them listen to you, but We have placed covers on their hearts, preventing them from understanding it, and heaviness in their ears. Though they see every Sign, they still have no faith, so that when they come to you, disputing with you, those who do not believe say: "This is nothing but the myths of previous peoples!" (Qur'an, 6:25)

We created many of the jinn and humanity for Hell. They have hearts with which they do not understand. They have eyes with which they do not see. They have ears with which they do not hear. Such people are like cattle. No, they are even further astray! They are the unaware. (Qur'an, 7:179)

New Testament

"For this people's heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them." (Matthew 13:15)

Do you have eyes but fail to see, and ears but fail to hear?... (Mark 8:18)

Go to this people and say: "You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving." For this people's heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn... (Acts 28:26-27)

 


DENIERS THINK THEY ARE SMART

When they are told: "Believe in the way that the people believe," they say: "What! Are we to believe in the way that fools believe?" No indeed! They are the fools, but they do not know it. (Qur'an, 2:13)

New Testament

Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools. (Romans 1:22)


DEBASEMENT OF THE UNBELIEVERS

No self can believe except with God's permission. He places a blight on those who do not use their intellect. (Qur'an, 10:100)

New Testament

Therefore God gave them over, through the sinful desires of their hearts, to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. (Romans 1:24)


NOT TO BEFRIEND THOSE WITH A BAD CHARACTER

You will not find people who believe in God and the Last Day having love for anyone who opposes God and His Messenger, though they be their fathers, their sons, their brothers, or their clan. God has inscribed faith upon such people's hearts, will reinforce them with a Spirit from Him, and admit them into Gardens with rivers flowing under them, remaining in them timelessly, forever. God is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him. Such people are the party of God. Truly, it is the party of God that is successful. (Qur'an, 58:22)

God merely forbids you from taking as friends those who have fought you in the religion, driven you from your homes, and supported your expulsion. Any who take them as friends are wrongdoers. (Qur'an, 60:9)

New Testament

But now I am writing you that you must not associate with anyone who calls himself a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a slanderer, a drunkard or a swindler. With such a man do not even eat. (1 Corinthians 5:11)

But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people… Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient. Therefore, do not be partners with them. (Ephesians 5:3, 6-7)


ONE DAY IN GOD'S PRESENCE IS LIKE ONE THOUSAND YEARS FOR US

They ask you to hasten the punishment. God will not break His promise. A day with your Lord is equivalent to a thousand years in the way you count. (Qur'an, 22:47)

New Testament

... With the Lord, a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:8-9)
