Allaah (The Most High) stated about those who disobeyed Prophet Musaa (alayhis-salaam):

ثُمَّ قَسَتْ قُلُوبُكُم مِّن بَعْدِ ذَٰلِكَ فَهِيَ كَالْحِجَارَةِ أَوْ أَشَدُّ قَسْوَةً

Then, after that, your hearts were hardened and became as stones or even worse in hardness. [2:74]

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaa) stated: The hardness of their hearts does not become lesser than the hardness of stones, rather if it does not become harder than stones, it does not become lesser than it.
