We will discuss the following verses:
Sura 18 Aya 57
Surely We have placed veils over their hearts, lest they understand, and a deafness in their ears; and if you call them to guidance they will never allow themselves to be guided.
A superficial reading of this aya would suggest that God punishes people by abandoning them and making them impervious to guidance. In reality, it is an expression of the law of attraction. If you engage in thoughts that lack faith, more thoughts of the same type come to you, and then still more thoughts, and eventually, your worldview becomes entrenched in a lack of faith and you can no longer see alternatives to what you are thinking. The habits you and I have are because certain ways of thinking have taken root in us. This aya helps us understand ourselves better, and how we can change, as will be discussed in our meeting.
