Who is More Wicked…

Guidance-I

“Who is more wicked than the man who, when he is reminded by the revelations of his Lord, turns away from them and forgets (the consequence of) the deeds wrought by his own hands? We have laid veils over their hearts lest they understand the message of the Qur’ān, and We have caused heaviness in their ears. Call them as you may to the right path, they will not be guided over. Your Lord is All-Forgiving, full of mercy. Had He wished to take them to task for their doings, He would have hastened in sending His scourge upon them. But He has set for them a time-limit which they cannot evade.”

(Al-Qur’ān – 18:57-58)

These verses from the Holy Qur’ān throw light on the Divine scheme for those who choose to reject truth. If someone resorts to sheer irrationality when confronted with arguments and sincere counsel, and pits falsehood, fraud and deception against truth and evinces no readiness in recognising that his misdeeds will have evil consequences, then God seals his heart and mind. As a result, such people become deaf to all voices calling them to truth and sanity. Instead of taking heed of sincere counsel, they obstinately continue towards self-destruction.

God does not punish the guilty instantly. Out of infinite mercy, He grants such criminals respite that they may mend themselves. Out of utter folly and ignorance, many people misunderstand this respite. They tend to believe that regardless of what they do, they will not be held to account – a belief which, of course, is totally erroneous.
