Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam said that there are three signs of a hypocrite.
One is that when he or she speaks, he lies, or she lies.
Number two is that when they promise they break their promise.
And number three is that when they are entrusted with something, they show that they weren't really trustworthy, they break their trust.
There's another Hadith where another one has mentioned, a fourth sign is that when they are in a dispute or in arguments, they resort to insults.
All of these things are extremely, extremely dangerous. So we have to take care, we have to be aware of
you need to be a trustworthy person, you need to be an honest person.
And you need to fulfill your promises, I'll just focus on two of these things, because two of them, I think, are more
prevalent in our day and age than others. If you say you're going to do something, do it.
We can't have you know, it's become a stereotype. Inshallah.
You know, subhanAllah, my daughter made me feel so embarrassed once. Because she asked us for something as children do, can I have this toy, etc, etc. And we did what many Muslim parents would do, we said, inshallah.
But she could tell what we meant. And so she said, No, really, can I have it?
She could tell that from the way that we were using that, that we didn't really intend to get her what she wanted. I Subhanallah
This is embarrassing. And it's something that I share this story to show that this is something all of us have to work on. If we say that we're going to do something, let's do it. If we say in sha Allah, let's say it with the intention that we're going to make something a reality.
And only Allah's Will, could intervene, not our own wavering.
And the other thing the fourth thing of the prophecies that I mentioned in a separate Hadith,
if he argues or when they argue they insult just think about the internet. Think about social media. Think about the comment section.
We it's so sad to see what we see from the behavior of Muslims, men and women in the comment section have different this person has a video this person has a lesson this person shared this and that etc.
It's a sign of hypocrisy that if you're in a debate or discussion or so on your results the insults keep it academic.
Say this is wrong. Not you are this
this thing that you said it's wrong because of this
not your that
and if you do this Inshallah, you will be saved from this sign of hypocrisy that the Prophet Mohammed slay said I'm told us about
