What is the proof from the Qur'aan that sins prevents (a person) from understanding the Qur'aan? - The Salafi Centre of Manchester
Answer: Allaah the most high says: كَلَّا بَلْ رَانَ عَلَى قُلُوبِهِم مَّا كَانُوا يَكْسِبُونَ [”Nay! But on their hearts is the Ran (covering of sins and evil deeds) which they used to earn.’’ [83:14] Shaykhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) derived from this ayah that sin is a cause of not (being able) to understand the Qur’aan.
