What is the proof from the Qur’aan that sins prevents (a person) from understanding the Qur’aan?

Answer:

Allaah the most high says:  كَلَّا بَلْ رَانَ عَلَى قُلُوبِهِم مَّا كَانُوا يَكْسِبُونَ

[”Nay! But on their hearts is the Ran (covering of sins and evil deeds) which they used to earn.’’ [83:14]   Shaykhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) derived from this ayah that sin is a cause of not (being able) to understand the Qur’aan.
