The Greatest Punishment as Believers

The greatest punishment for us is when our heart hardened. When heard get hard, it will lead us to all sins. And that lead us to many punishments.

Allah ﷻ says:

أَفَمَن شَرَحَ اللَّهُ صَدْرَهُ لِلْإِسْلَامِ فَهُوَ عَلَىٰ نُورٍ مِّن رَّبِّهِ ۚ فَوَيْلٌ لِّلْقَاسِيَةِ قُلُوبُهُم مِّن ذِكْرِ اللَّهِ ۚ أُولَٰئِكَ فِي ضَلَالٍ مُّبِينٍ

❝So is one whose breast Allah has expanded to (accept) Islam and he is upon a light from his Lord (like one whose heart rejects it)? Then woe to those whose hearts are hardened against the remembrance of Allah. Those are in manifest error.❞
[az-Zumar, 39:22]

al-Qurtubi reported: Malik ibn Dinar, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “A servant is not struck by a greater punishment than having a hard heart. Allah is not angry with people but that He removes mercy from their hearts.” [Tafsir al-Qurtubi]
