عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مِنْ عَلَامَاتِ الْمُنَافِقِ ثَلَاثَةٌ وَإِنْ صَامَ وَصَلَّى وَزَعَمَ أَنَّهُ مُسْلِمٌ إِذَا حَدَّثَ كَذَبَ وَإِذَا وَعَدَ أَخْلَفَ وَإِذَا اؤْتُمِنَ خَانَ

This in-depth study on Hypocrisy will help you to understand Nifaq and its forms in detail, so we can save ourselves from the harm of this disease.
Hypocrisy is “claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one’s own behaviour does not conform.”
In fact, the ancient Greek word comes from the word Hypocrisy for a stage actor or one who wears a mask. It is not necessarily the fact that they sin that makes them a hypocrite, it’s the fact that they don’t acknowledge it. They don’t admit that their lives contradict what they say.
Surah Al- Munafiqoon is a Madani Surah with one theme and with one topic.
It is a sickness of the heart that transforms into the attitude and mindset of the Muslim if not treated at the right time.
Al-Hasan Al-Basri said of hypocrisy:
“No one fears it but a believer, and no one feels safe from it but a hypocrite.”
It is a fact that many of the sincerest companions of Prophet Muhammad SAW feared hypocrisy for themselves, and were extremely conscious of their words and actions because of this fear.
The signs of a hypocrite are three, even if he fasts and prays and claims to be a Muslim: when he speaks he lies, when he makes a promise he breaks it, and when he is trusted he is treacherous.”
Source: Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 33, Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 59
Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said,
“Two qualities are not combined in the hypocrite: good behavior and understanding of religion.”
