A pure or partial hypocrite!



عن عبد الله بن عمرو رضي الله عنهما قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : “أربع من كُنَّ فيه كان منافقاً خالصاً.  ومن كانت فيه خَصلة منهن كانت فيه خصلة من النفاق حتى يدعها: إذا ائتُمِنَ خان، وإذا حدّث كذب، وإذا عاهد غدَر، وإذا خاصم فجر” متفق عليه

The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said,

“Whoever has the following four (characteristics) will be a pure hypocrite and whoever has one of the following four characteristics will have characteristics of hypocrisy unless and until he gives it up.

1. Whenever he is entrusted, he betrays.

2. Whenever he speaks, he tells a lie.

3. Whenever he makes a covenant, he proves treacherous.

4. Whenever he quarrels, he behaves in a very imprudent, evil and insulting manner.”

(Sahih Bukhari & Muslim)

We have to see ours daily activities in light of this hadith and judge the stage of hypocrisy we are in.
