وَقَالُواْ قُلُوبُنَا فِىٓ أَكِنَّةٍ مِّمَّا تَدۡعُونَآ إِلَيۡهِ وَفِىٓ ءَاذَانِنَا وَقۡرٌ وَمِن بَيۡنِنَا وَبَيۡنِكَ حِجَابٌ فَٱعۡمَلۡ إِنَّنَا عَٰمِلُونَ
They say: "Our hearts are under veils, (concealed) from that to which thou dost invite us, and in our ears in a deafness, and between us and thee is a screen: so do thou (what thou wilt); for us, we shall do (what we will!)"<br/>
And they say, to the Prophet, 'Our hearts are veiled, [they are] masked, from that to which you call us, and in our ears there is a deafness and between us and you there is a partition, a variance over religion, so act, according to your religion; indeed we shall be acting!', according to our religion.
