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
