Insightful Blind

Not equal are the blind and the seeing,
Nor are the darknesses and the light. [Fatir:19-20]

In these verses the blind and seeing are being contrasted. This is not referring to physical blindness but it means blindness of the heart. Below is a quote from a woman who is physically blind yet she has more sight in many ways than some of us who can see do.
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt within the heart.”

– Helen Keller

    Very true, subhaanallaah.

    Just today, I came across a clip which mentioned how Sh. Ibn Baaz, rahimahullaah, lost his eyesight at a young age, yet he was able to see the light of guidance by the mercy of Allaah ta’aalaa; on the countrary, many others were able to see, yet their hearts were blind to the truth.

    May Allaah ta’aalaa light our hearts with the light of eemaan.
