فَبِمَا نَقْضِهِم مِّيثَاقَهُمْ وَكُفْرِهِم بَآيَاتِ ٱللَّهِ وَقَتْلِهِمُ ٱلأَنْبِيَآءَ بِغَيْرِ حَقٍّ وَقَوْلِهِمْ قُلُوبُنَا غُلْفٌ بَلْ طَبَعَ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيْهَا بِكُفْرِهِمْ فَلاَ يُؤْمِنُونَ إِلاَّ قَلِيلاً
-An-Nisâ’ ( النساء )

Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

(Then because of their breaking of their covenant) We did with them that which We have done, (and their disbelieving in the revelations of Allah) and due to their disbelief in Muhammad and the Qur'an the capitation tax was imposed on them, (and their slaying) and because of their slaying (of the Prophets wrongfully) without any right, We destroyed them, (and their saying) and because of their saying: (Our hearts are hardened) our hearts can absorb any kind of knowledge but we cannot understand what you say and the knowledge you have brought (Nay, but Allah hath set a seal upon them) in fact, it is not as they say, but Allah has set a seal on their hearts (for their disbelief) in Muhammad and the Qur'an, (so that they believe not) in Muhammad and the Qur'an (save a few) 'Abdullah Ibn Salam and his followers.
