Know That Allah Comes Between A Person And His Heart

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

[وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ يَحُولُ بَيْنَ الْمَرْءِ وَقَلْبِهِ – And know that Allah comes in between a person and his heart]- Therefore, beware of rejecting the command of Allaah when it comes to you at first, lest He comes between you and it when you turn away; for indeed Allaah intervenes between a person and his heart. Allaah causes it [i.e. the heart of a person] to change and turns it in any direction as He wills [as a just recompense for the one who rejects or turns away from the truth]. Therefore, a slave [i.e. a Muslim] should increase in [uttering] the statement [i.e. the supplication]: “O turner of the hearts, keep my heart firm upon your Religion; O turner of the hearts, turn my heart towards obedience to You.” [Ref 1]

”O you who believe! Answer Allaah (by obeying Him) and (his) Messenger when he (the messenger) calls you to that which will give you life, and know that Allaah comes between a person and his heart.’’[8:24]

And amongst the statements of the mufassiroon mentioned by Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) about this ayah is that: ”If they turn away and delay in answering the call of Allaah and His Messenger, then they are not safe from Allaah coming between them and their hearts. And after that it will become impossible for them to answer the call, as a punishment for abandoning the truth after it has been made clear and manifest. So they become like (those mentioned) in the statement of Allaah: ”And We shall turn their hearts and their eyes away (from guidance), as they refuse to believe therein for the first time’ [8:110] [Ref 2]
