Here, one places in brackets the word disbelieving as it is so heavily implied in the Arabic kafūr: fundamentally, the root kafara means ‘to cover over’. ’ (25:43; almost identical at 45:23). If one does not believe in God, one cannot but believe in one’s ego as a kind of absolute, thus, as an idol, a substitute and rival to the true Absolute; the desires and whims of the ego then assume the character of quasi-absolute commands. Disbelieving in one’s Creator thus engenders self-divinisation, the foreshadowing of which is complacency and self-satisfaction.
Having chosen the slippery slope of sin, on the basis of their own free will, sinners will increase in sinfulness, due to the everaccelerating momentum generated by each succeeding sin. God is the source of existence, and thus, the source of all the laws and rhythms and dynamics of existence at all levels—physical, moral, intellectual and spiritual; He is thus, in an ultimate sense ‘responsible’ for this particular law of existential momentum or ‘sinful motion’, according to which sins generate further sins.
