is it their intellect which is hindering them from believing in the Hereafter or their desires of the self.?
Or regard the resurrection and the hereafter as impossible?
What makes them deny the hereafter is not, in fact, their regarding the Resurrection and Hereafter as impossible BUT they deny it because acceptance of the Hereafter inevitably imposes certain moral restrictions on them, which they detest. They desire that they should continue roaming in the world at will as they have been roaming before. They should have full freedom to go on committing whatever injustice, dishonesty, sin and wickedness that they have been committing before, and there should be no deterrent to obstruct their freedom and to warn them that one day they will have to appear and render an account of their deeds before their God. Therefore, it is not their intellect which is hindering them from believing in the Hereafter but their desires of the self.
