Hearts of non-believers

Should we consider the hearts of non-believers to be sealed?

We don’t have the right to consider anybody's heart to be sealed, whether they are Muslims or non-Muslims.

If a disbeliever has not received the message of Islam properly, then he has the chance to return to guidance when the message reaches him. The heart becomes sealed when a person who believes later turns to disbelief.

As described in the verse of the Qur’an, the translation of which is:

“That is because they believed, and then disbelieved; therefore their hearts are sealed, so they understand not.” [1]

This is the turning away from the Truth in the ultimate sense.


[1] Al-Quran Surah al Munafiqoon- 63: 3
