Episode Notes

Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan delves into the topic of Nifaq ( hypocrisy) and the Munafiqoon in Ayats 8 and 9 of Surah Al Baqarah. The hypocrites have been described exhaustively in  Surah at-Tawbah (chapter 9), Surah an-Nur (chapter 24), Surah al-Munafiqoon (chapter 63) and other Surahs as well so that their description would be known and their ways and errors could be avoided.

Allah SWT talks about the hypocrites as those who claim Iman by their tongues, but in their hearts they conceal disbelief. Allah SWT revealed the characteristics of the hypocrites so that the believers would not be deceived by their outer appearance, thus saving the believers. The believers might think that the hypocrites were believers when in reality they are disbelievers. Allah SWT knows everything that is inside our hearts and how we act. 

In Ayat number 9, Allah SWT warned Muhammad ﷺ to be careful of hypocrites who have accepted Islam only for worldly benefits. When it comes to making a sacrifice or changing themselves in the way of Islam they take a step backward. They assume that by doing this, they will mislead Allah SWT, or that they will get help from Allah. This is indicative of their total ignorance. Alas! How unfortunate are they!
