101- We narrate to you the history of those communities; their messengers went to them with clear signs but they were not to believe in what they had rejected before. God thus seals the hearts of the disbelievers.
7-The Purgatory, 101
God supported His messengers with confirmatory signs. But the mentality that rejected these messages approached these signs with a ready-to-reject attitude and looked at them with prejudice. Instead of trying to understand them, those who received these signs tried their best to ignore and even oppose them. Every human being is in need of God’s messages. A person who denies God, contradicts himself. The first thing that disbelievers should do is to avoid denial, and approach the proofs objectively. It is not logical to give up the eternal life God has promised because of arrogance and stubbornness.
118- Those who possess no knowledge have said, “Why does God not speak or show us a sign?” The same question has been asked by others before them, who were like them in their hearts. But to those who are firm in their faith, We have shown Our signs.
2-The Cow, 118
God shows His signs and miracles according to His unchanging system. It is in vain to expect God’s miracles to be displayed to suit disbelievers’ wishes, such as, “God should be visible and angels should come down from the heavens.” God displays His evidence clearly to the people who are ready to receive it. Mathematics, which is the origin of all sciences, has the most respectable place among all sciences, and especially the natural sciences depend on mathematical data. Even the most skeptical people yield to mathematical certainty. In the age we live in, God confirms that He wrote the Book He sent to humanity in the same language in which He wrote the universe. So the Book of God proves the correctness and reliability of its messages in a miraculous style.
38- Do they say that: “He has fabricated it?” Say to them,
“Bring a sura (chapter) like this, and call anyone apart from God you can. If what you say is true.”
39- Indeed, they have rejected what they have no knowledge about, whose explanation has not reached them yet. Thus, those before them disbelieved. Therefore, note the consequences for the unjust.
When disbelievers are insistent in their denial, instead of trying to comprehend what has been presented, they reject it immediately. Their denial is not justified. Arrogance, stubbornness and contradiction motivate them. The Quran informs us that such people will not demonstrate motivation objectively, and rationally evaluate the evidence; thus, they will continue to disbelieve.
109- They solemnly swear by God, that if a sign came to them, they would certainly believe in it. Say, “The signs are with God.” For all you know, if a sign did come to them, they would continue to disbelieve.
6-The Cattle, 109
110- We shall turn their hearts and their eyes, for they did not believe them at the very first; We leave them in their transgression, blundering.
6-The Cattle, 110
111- Even if We sent down the angels to them, even if the dead spoke to them, even if We gathered all things before their eyes, they would not believe unless God willed it. For most of them are ignorant.
