Qalb (Heart) or Brain (Understanding/Believing)The Qur’an says that Allah has put a seal on the hearts of the Kuffar andthey will not believe. Science tells us today that the brain is responsible forunderstanding and believing and not the heart. Isn’t the Qur’ancontradicting Science?1. Allah has set a seal on the heart of the Kuffar
The Glorious Qur’an says:"As to those who reject Faith it is the same to them whether thou warn them ordo not warn them; they will not believe. Allah hath set a seal on their hearts andon their hearing and on their eyes is a veil great is the penalty they incur." [Al-Qur’an 2:6-7]
2. The word qalb in Arabic means heart as well as intelligence
The Arabic word qalb used in these verses means the heart. It also meansintelligence. Thus the above verses also mean that Allah has put a seal on theintelligence of the kuffaars (unbelievers) and they will not understand andbelieve.
3. In the Arabic language heart is also used as a centre of understanding
In the Arabic language the word ‘heart’ is also used to connote one’s centre ofunderstanding.
