A hypocrite lives in a mangled state. A hypocrite thinks that he will carry out his activities freely. He thinks that he can do whatever he wishes, he can make any wickedness. The fact is however, all the activities that a hypocrite does are designed by Allah. They are created and are over in the Sight of Allah.
Unbelievers are not free, hypocrites are not free either. Some might presume that they are free but they are not. Hypocrites imagine that they have a boundless freedom. Actually all that they will be doing are defined millimeter by millimeter. They can only do what they have in their destiny and nothing more.
A hypocrite would be determined to go to other hypocrites; they attract him like a magnet. Hypocrites burn inside when they are with Muslims. They feel a strong instinctive urge to go to other hypocrites. When they go with their side they take up a position there and that place becomes their hell. They start following Muslims from that position.
Hypocrites go into a trance with satan and receive information from him. Satan advices them, saying, "Do this, do that, do this evil act, do that immorality and create such and such conflict," when they are alone. Because the Name of God is recited when they are with Muslims, their concentration is disrupted.
Hypocrites talk nonsense. They do not want to talk about God; this is the characteristic of hypocrites. They burn inside when they talk about God. They always try and talk by giving examples. I mean they give examples from other people, they give examples from their environment. They always talk with examples. This is the main characteristic of hypocrites.
The greatest ideal of hypocrites is to pull away from Muslim, to revolt as soon as possible. That is because they need to take up a position. That is to say, to strike from a distance. But of course while doing so, they would not strike their first blow in a way that Muslims would understand. They try to do that in a way they wouldn't understand. And they have a tendency to depart by presenting themselves as Muslims.
Hypocrites pine for gaining power and honor in disbelief. But when they go join them, their profanity burns them out and devastates them. They dive into that profanity as they burn and they burn even further as they dive deeper into profanity. That constitutes a system that constantly competes with itself and it swallows them and devastates them until they end up in the middle of hell.
A Muslim is attacked very often. A Muslim is the one who is attacked. A Muslim is the one with a lot of enemies. If one is a real Muslim, if he is a real man of causes, he would have a lot of enemies. How could one be a Muslim if he doesn't have hypocrites pestering him? Muslims have a lot of unbelievers and a lot of hypocrites pestering them.
Unbelievers and hypocrites struggle against Muslims. They will cause them [Muslims] pain, they will slander [them], they will play games, they will cause troubles, they will make up stories about them. God says "Do not mind their torments" ; what does “Do not mind" mean? It is a religious obligation. It is a religious obligation not to be affected by those things; if one does mind them, that means he is doing something religiously unlawful. It is a religious obligation not to mind, not to value, not to take seriously the games these impertinent people play.
When you talk about something beautiful, they [unbelievers] become jealous. That is why such things are not told to sick people. It is only said to those sincere, righteous Muslims. They would feel relieved with such news but you should not speak of such good news to those jealous, dangerous people with the characteristics of hypocrites. Refraining from saying such things to such people would be an act of worship. You should hold your tongue, be silent and talk about other things.
Those who are after their own pleasure want to be on both sides, they want to go be with Muslims and with the others as well. They want to have fun both here and there but when they face the slightest difficulty, when something conflicts with their interests, they flee instantly. Again when things seem to be at his sweet will, he sniffs and looks around. He approaches things if he sees no problem. He imagines that he can really attain some results from such a behavior. However if he acts this treacherously, knowingly and intentionally, his reward would be ever heavier. He won't be saved by that occasional coming and going.
Almighty God only looks if he is a Muslim or not. I mean there is no such thing as a semi-hypocrite or a semi-Muslim. God says "Everything you do would go to your idols.” For instance, he behaves 5% for God and 95% for his idols. Everything he does would then go his idols. Or on the contrary, he behaves 95% for God and 5% for idols; that would go completely to idols as well. God says, "You should do everything you do only for Me."
Hypocrites are the dirt among a Muslim community. Just like Muslims get rid of the dirt on them when they bathe and become immaculately clean after that bath, they wash themselves with soap and get rid of that dirt and become squeaky-clean and healthy. And you say, “Why doesn't that dirt stick?" Muslims are clean, they do not live with dirt. They wash off the dirt and get rid of it, hypocrites are thus washed off and what remains behind are radiant Muslims.
Muslims do not take dirt in. The dirt that is the hypocrite is frequently washed off and Muslims are cleansed from it. Muslims become strong and fresh as they are cleansed from them. How do people feel after a shower? They feel refreshed, immaculately clean and fragrant. That is exactly how they are after the hypocrites are washed off from among them.
When one catches the sickness of hypocrisy, he only loves himself and cannot love other Muslims. Something comes over him as he dives into arrogance and he starts finding an excuse for every perversity he has. He makes an excuse for every impertinent act of his and the most dangerous aspect of hypocrisy is that they start defending themselves with the Qur'an. I mean they distort the Book with their tongues.
Looking for the most of God's approval is something the hypocrites like the least. Hypocrites would only go for the things they like, for the things that serve their interests and leave those that do not serve their purposes aside. In their twisted minds, only the parts of the Qur'an that are in their favor are valid, only those parts that comply with their lower-selves are valid. They do not accept those parts that go against their lower-selves.
Satan talks from the mouth of the hypocrites. That is why Muslims with naive hearts cannot deal with satan. Hypocrites are silver-tongued. Satan gets hold of the mouths and the brains of those hypocrites and from that point on, satan becomes the one they are dealing with, not those people across them.
Hypocrites provide great advantages for Muslims. First of all, their existence increase the fervency and enthusiasm of Muslims. It increases their determination for struggling on the path of God, broadens their horizons and increases their vigilance. It mitigates their lassitude and languish in case they have such weaknesses. They become bolder and more sincere.
The power of speech hypocrites have is astounding. I mean it is not possible for an ordinary person to deal with it. That is because they try to drag others to their own path every now and then. A Muslim might be taken unaware and get in their path. However, the response should always be given with the Qur'an. Because they get into that satanic mood, they talk in a satanic fashion and a Muslim might be taken unaware and get in their path. The hypocrites then start speaking with their intelligence. Actually one should respond hypocrites with wisdom against their intelligence.
One asks, "Why do we have difficulties in this world?" That is because otherwise people are unable to leave the world behind. This difficult environment is a must to separate hypocrites from Muslims, devout ones and the good ones. Or else everyone would power through easiness and so do the hypocrites. But in hardship, hypocrites fail and cannot power through.
Hypocrites are so lazy, so nonchalant and so egoist that they submit their brains to the satan. Then they start admiring themselves because satan gives them amazing information. That is to say, with their verbosity, with their repartee, it is very easy for hypocrites to fool naive, stagnant- minded Muslims.
Hypocrites want Muslims to fall apart and disperse. That is because they imagine that their crime would be cleared away if Muslims disperse. I mean that would make everyone as guilty as they are and they would thus be relieved. That is why they constantly wait for an opportunity that would cause Muslims to disperse. What could they do in our age, for instance? They might use the internet, they might use computers, etc. They might use gossip and hearsay.
When they come across a hypocrite, Muslims should immediately hold on to other Muslims. They should receive help from sound-minded Muslims. That is because they would be conversing with satan at that moment. Satan is the greatest scholar in evilness. They cannot deal with the knowledge of satan. For instance, satan instantly determines with which purpose a word is uttered, in which sense one's soul is weak, what their weaknesses are. That is why especially naive and stagnant Muslims should be protected very well. Hypocrites have such a high power of leaping and bouncing.
Unbelievers are superior than hypocrites. Unbelievers are the lesser evil; that is because they act honestly and say that they do not believe. This is not the case for hypocrites, they hide themselves among Muslims and act treacherously. They hope for their help and try to have them crushed by providing intelligence about them. They try to have Muslims crushed by forging alliances with the unbelievers.
To listen to our Prophet (saas) they need to gather in a place. They say, "There is a commercial opportunity here, the goods have arrived, and everyone rushes about and leaves our Prophet (saas) standing”. They will have to give account of every single step they have taken while rushing about. They will have to give account of every single minute, every single second of leaving our prophet (saas) standing.
Hypocrites ask the Prophet to excuse them, saying, ´Our houses are exposed,´ when they were not exposed. What do they mean by saying that their houses are exposed? They mean to say, "I have a family at home, I need to take care of them, of their education. I need to bring food to my spouse at home, I need to take care of her. My store is exposed as well. My trade is mired down, I need to take care of that." Well my brother, alright, but they are killing, martyring Muslims all over. Is your store more important or their being martyred?
Hypocrites- in their own minds- try to deceive the Prophet (saas) with the Qur'an. They say, "Doesn't God tell us to protect our families? And God shows us trade as a lawful path and that is what I am doing." Alright, but you need to look for the act that would please God the most, you need to be honest and sincere. There are Muslim women, inoffensive Muslims, being martyred and here you are talking about your trade. Do not act in infamy, come to your senses and stop acting foolishly. People are being killed there, Muslims are being martyred; is your trade more important than that? Are you that foolish?
Hypocrites not only think nothing of the situation of the Muslims in the world but also are pleased with the fact that they do not shoulder those difficulties and responsibilities. They imagine themselves as very wise. They think that they are prudent and keep away from Muslims, keep away from incidents. They say, "I am really wise, I acted very sagaciously" unaware of the troubles that they've dragged themselves into and of the blessings bestowed upon Muslims. By doing so they proceed forward on their path in to the depths of Hell and in the meantime Muslims' reward, the Heaven they will be given, will shine even more.
Sometimes the acts of Muslim might look very much like the acts of a hypocrite but that doesn't make him a hypocrite, it only means that he caught a disease. When you save him from that disease, he would go on as a Muslim. But when you apply the same treatment to the hypocrite - there is a grave danger here - the hypocrite might appear as if he is saved as well, but he continues his ways underhandedly.
Muslims should be very perceptive, very foresighted and very wise, they should be vigilant; apathy would do them no good. Water sleeps but the hypocrites never rest. That disease might develop any moment. Muslims might explain to them the truth in all their honesty but they ridicule them inside and don't even listen to them.
The Companions of our Prophet (saas) always strove for the sake of God. But the hypocrites always had excuses like ‘our houses are exposed' or ‘we would have come if we knew how’. However, if they were told that they would be given gold, they would have immediately obliged. That is because it would have served their interests. However, one's interests should always be in showing good morality; one should choose faith and reward from God instead of gold. Otherwise one would start to turn into an animal.
