The Eyes of the Heart

أَفَلا يَتَدَبَّرُونَ الْقُرْآنَ أَمْ عَلَى قُلُوبٍ أَقْفَالُهَا

Will they not contemplate on the Qur’an? Nay, there are locks upon their hearts.

(Muhammad: 24)

خَالِد بْن مَعْدَان قَالَ : مَا مِنْ آدَمِيّ إِلَّا وَلَهُ أَرْبَع أَعْيُن : عَيْنَانِ فِي رَأْسه لِدُنْيَاهُ , وَمَا يُصْلِحهُ مِنْ مَعِيشَته , وَعَيْنَانِ فِي قَلْبه لِدِينِهِ , وَمَا وَعَدَ اللَّه مِنْ الْغَيْب , فَإِذَا أَرَادَ اللَّه بِعَبْدٍ خَيْرًا أَبْصَرَتْ عَيْنَاهُ اللَّتَانِ فِي قَلْبه , وَإِذَا أَرَادَ اللَّه بِهِ غَيْر ذَلِكَ طُمِسَ عَلَيْهِمَا , فَذَلِكَ قَوْله :  أَمْ عَلَى قُلُوب أَقْفَالهَا

Khaalid bin Ma’daan said, “There is no human, except that he has four eyes: two eyes in his head – for his dunya, and for the improvement of his life; and two eyes in his heart – for his deen, and for what Allah has promised of the Unseen. So if Allah intends good for a slave, the two eyes in his heart have vision; and if Allah intends for him other than that, they  are destroyed. So that is His Saying, ‘Nay, there are locks upon their hearts.'”
