How will it be when a disaster strikes them because of what they have done, and then they come to you swearing by Allah: ‘We desired nothing but good and reconciliation’? (Surat an-Nisa’, 62)
They come to the side of our Prophet (as), and in the figurative meaning in to the side of Hazrat Mahdi (as) in the End Times. They say “Our aim is to do goodness, we want to make you right”. The hypocrites seem to be very reconciliatory and humble since they need to gain a better position. When they are caught, they become more precautious. For this reason, they try to be seen more benevolent and compliant. Therefore their destruction becomes more intense.
The hypocrite swears to Allah. He says, “There is a gap, I am trying to fix it”. But his only purpose is to collapse Islam in his own eyes. There is a so-called gap that he claims to have found. He uses the intricate sides, the sides that he thinks not explained in the Qur’an. Allah is beyond this, it is not to be compared, but this is something like a criminal benefiting from a loophole in law. However if something is not explained in the Qur’an, then it is halal (lawful). We do not search whether cherry is lawful or not, or grape is lawful or not. If it is not explained then it is lawful, but a hypocrite asks “where did you find it”, and he thinks he makes shrewdness with this method.
