41:22 - 41:23[edit]

22. Ye did not hide yourselves lest your ears and your eyes and your skins should testify against you, but ye deemed that Allah knew not much of what ye did.
23. That, your thought which ye did think about your Lord, hath ruined you; and ye find yourselves (this day) among the lost.
Narrated Ibn Mas'ud

(regarding) the Verse: 'And you have not been screening against yourself lest your ears, and your eyes and your skins should testify against you..' (41.22) While two persons from Quraish and their brother-in-law from Thaqif (or two persons from Thaqif and their brother-in-law from Quraish) were in a house, they said to each other, "Do you think that Allah hears our talks?" Some said, "He hears a portion thereof" Others said, "If He can hear a portion of it, He can hear all of it." Then the following Verse was revealed:

'And you have not been screening against yourself lest your ears, and your eyes and your skins should testify against you...' (41.22)
