Quran is ocean of Wonders | Ramadan Reflects by Mujeeb Jaihoon (Day 04)
In content and form, the book of ALLAH is full of wonders. Each drop of its verse and phrase in it can inspire oceans of ideas.
One of the verses which created a spring of thoughts was from Sura Araf, “To those who reject Our signs and treat them with arrogance, no opening will there be of the gates of heaven, nor will they enter the garden, until the camel can pass through the eye of the needle: Such is Our reward for those in sin.”
An expression of matchless beauty to denote the ruthless impossibility of the deniers of truth ever entering the gates of heaven. A fearful warning conveyed via the simplest of human logic. While one may take modest effort to pass a thread through the needle hole, we can imagine how a camel would pass through the same gap! Denial of truth coupled with arrogance – both of which are misdeeds of the heart- are grave sins in the eye of Allah, perhaps greater than killing or robbery.
Perhaps, an intellectual sin is more evil in the sight of Allah than with our hands or feet.
