وَجَعَلْنَا عَلَىٰ قُلُوبِهِمْ أَكِنَّةً أَن يَفْقَهُوهُ وَفِيۤ ءَاذَانِهِمْ وَقْراً وَإِذَا ذَكَرْتَ رَبَّكَ فِي ٱلْقُرْءَانِ وَحْدَهُ وَلَّوْاْ عَلَىٰ أَدْبَٰرِهِمْ نُفُوراً
-Al-Isrâ’ ( الإسراء )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And We place upon their hearts veils, covers, lest they should understand it, lest they should understand the Qur’ān, in other words, and so [in this way] they do not understand it, and in their ears a deafness, a heaviness, thus they cannot hear it. And when you mention your Lord alone in the Qur’ān, they turn their backs in aversion, to it.
