Blind of heart – Islamonweb



Undoubtedly, two types of people are found in all the descendants of Adam on the whole earth:
The first type is that of the sighted person who, on the basis of God-given visual power, observes the rotation of the sun and moon, the movement of the sun and the moon, the wonders of the sea and the ocean with his open eyes. The second type is the blind person who is deprived of seeing the factory of nature.

The above two types of people are introduced. But sight and non-sight are not merits and demerits per se. Because sometimes the seer is blind and the blind are among the seers.

Undoubtedly, he who cannot differentiate between right and wrong, truth and falsehood, is blind even if he has an eye. He who denies the lordship of God, the divinity of God, and the divinity of God even after observing the trees and stones, the ocean, and the earth, is actually blind. He who does not recognize the greatness of the Imams of the Prophets, peace and blessings be upon him, even after looking at the divine verses and prophetic hadiths, is truly blind. And those who do not learn a lesson even after seeing the funerals of the elderly, young people and children and continue to indulge in lies, deceit, theft, adultery, alcoholism and forbidden eating, such people are truly blind.

Indeed, these people are not blind in their eyes, but they are blind in their hearts. And the blind of the heart is the real blind.
Allah says: So it does not blind the eyes, but it blinds the heart in the chest.“(Al-Hajj) Translation of Kanzala-Iman: So that the eyes are not blind, but the hearts that are in the breasts are blind.

O people of sight, the taste is good, but.
Those who do not see the reality of the object, have seen!
(Dr. Iqbal)

When a person becomes blind in heart, it becomes easy for him to commit all crimes and evils. Theft, robbery, even strangling someone’s throat unjustly, does not get regret. From watching obscene pictures on the smartphone, he easily commits all possible evils, yet his body does not even tremble with the fear of God, but does not consider small sins as sins, and when blindness increases, even major crimes. I don’t understand crimes. Because the one who is blind of the heart only seeks desires and pleasures and what will happen next? He is unconcerned about its bad consequences and end.

Being blind to God’s commands in this world is such a dangerous disease that it is unable to see the good of this world and the good of the Hereafter. If this blindness is not properly treated in this world, then that blindness will remain in the hereafter as well. And he will be deprived of the good things of the Hereafter. As God Almighty says:وَمَنَ كَانَ فـــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــاـــــــــــــــــــــــ,(Bani Israel)
Translation of Kanzal-e-Iman: And whoever is blind in this life is blind in the Hereafter and even more astray.

Therefore, one should always try to treat blindness, because it is not an incurable disease, but it will definitely become incurable after the wire of life is broken. Just understand that the disease is very dangerous, but before the candle of life is extinguished, treatment is necessary. Very possible. In such a way that he should fill his heart with the fear of God, be ashamed of his previous sins, if he has violated someone’s right, then he should return his right, then he should repent in the presence of God the Holy One and make a determination to always avoid sins. The noble saying of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is:Repentance from sin is like one who has no sin.(Sunan Ibn Majah)
A person who repents of sin is like a person who has no sin. Also, keep praying for the cure of blindness, O Allah!

Along with sight, the vision should also be bright
Put dust in the eyes again and again
(Azam Mufti of India, peace be upon him)

May Allah Almighty grant us all the ability to remove the blindness of our hearts, and give us the insight to differentiate between truth and falsehood, truthfulness and falsehood, good deeds, and deliver us from all diseases of the hearts.
Amen, Lord of the worlds, for the sake of the Prophet ﷺ
