Hazrat Ibn `Umar and Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: We heard the Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) saying (while delivering Khutbah on his wooden pulpit), "Either some people (i.e., hypocrites) stop neglecting the Friday prayers, or Allah will seal their hearts and they will be among the heedless.''

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al-Araaf Ayat 101 "Thus Allah does seal up the hearts of the disbelievers (from each and every kind of religious guidance)". "They will be among the heedless'' means those who will become utterly unmindful of the remembrance of Allah and His Orders. Such people are Munafiqun (hypocrites), whose abode will be Hell. It means that negligence of Jumu`ah for a long time is such a serious offence that it can even seal a man's heart, which finishes all hopes and chances of one's improvement.
