They say, “Our hearts are the wrappings (which preserve Allah’s Word: we need no more).” Nay, Allah’s curse is on them for their blasphemy: Little is it they believe.
According to Bayan ul Quran:
They say: ‘Our hearts are in secure wrappers’.” That is to say, they say,
“our hearts are covered and sealed. We have every type of knowledge, so we
don’t need the knowledge you claim to receive from Allah and your preaching is
not going to affect our hearts.”
“But the fact of the matter is that Allah has cursed them for their disbelief.” i.e.
Allah says that it is not they who do not believe, rather it is Allah who has
sealed their hearts because of their arrogance and deviance. “So little is that
which they believe.” i.e. they do not believe in the real sense.
