    Turning away from His rememberance.

    A query about this Quran verse:
    And whoever turns away from My remembrance - indeed, he will have a depressed life, and We will gather him on the Day of Resurrection blind."

    Is this meant literally? I’ve heard of other parts of the Quran not being taken entirely literally but perhaps metaphorically or in a certain context it means what it means. I’m asking this because a lot of people turn away from God and immerse themselves in sin and seem to be enjoying themselves by doing it. Of course I can’t confirm anything, only God knows.

    The arabic word used is "duanka" which means narrow - wretched - straitened

    Ta Ha 20:124

    وَمَنْ أَعْرَضَ عَن ذِكْرِى فَإِنَّ لَهُۥ مَعِيشَةً ضَنكًا وَنَحْشُرُهُۥ يَوْمَ ٱلْقِيَٰمَةِ أَعْمَىٰ

    "But whosoever turns away from My Message, verily for him is a life narrowed down, and We shall raise him up blind on the Day of Judgment."


    ---

    When considering the vastness that Allah opens up to the one who takes justice in Allah's sight with the beginning of creation to the day of judgement and beyond into his/her stride and thinks and lives accordingly - it makes better sense. Simply compare it to the narrow mindset of a capitalist or racist or an idolator and it should be obvious.
