10 Sign of Munafiq In Islam

Sign of Munafiq In Islam. Munafiq is a serious sickness and a great crime. It means making an outward display of Islam whilst inwardly concealing kufr. Munafiq is more dangerous than kufr (disbelief) and the punishment for it is more severe because it is kufr mixed with Islam and its harmful effects are greater. Hence Allaah will put the hypocrites in the lowest level of Hell, as He says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Verily, the hypocrites will be in the lowest depth (grade) of the Fire; no helper will you find for them[al-Nisaa’ 4:145]

10 sign of Munafiq in Islam.

  • WHEN HE SPEAKS THE LIES
  • WHEN HE MAKES A PROMISE HE BREAKS IT
  • WHEN YOU ENTRUST HIM WITH SOMETHING HE PROVES TREACHEROUS.

Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Among the signs of a hypocrite are three, even if he fasts and prays and claims to be a Muslim: when he speaks he lies, when he gives a promise he breaks it, and when he is trusted he betrays.

  • WHENEVER HE DISPUTES HE IS ABUSIVE

‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr narrated that the Prophet (SAW) said, “If anyone has four characteristics, he is a pure hypocrite, and if anyone has one of them, he has an aspect of hypocrisy until he gives it up: whenever he is trusted, he betrays his trust; whenever he speaks, he lies; when he makes an agreement, he breaks it; and when he quarrels, he deviates from the truth by speaking falsely.” [al-Bukhari (34) and Muslim (58)]

  • HE LIKES TO SLANDER THE BELIEVERS

Abdullah ibn Ubayy was a munafiq during the time of the Sahabahs
He slandered Aisha radi allahu anha

On the authority of ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr bin Al-‘As (RA) that the Prophet (SAW) said: “A Muslim is the one from whose tongue and hands the Muslims are safe, and a Muhajir (Emigrant) is the one who refrains from what Allah has forbidden.” [al-Bukhari (10) and Muslim (40)]

  • HE STARTS FITNAH AMONG THE BELIEVERS AND THEN HE PRETENDS HE DOESN’T KNOW WHO STARTED IT

You can lie to save a marriage, or for two Muslims to makeup
But the munafiq makes up lies and spreads fitnah.
…Ibn Shihab said he did not hear that exemption was granted in anything that the people speak as a lie but in three cases: in battle, for bringing reconciliation amongst persons and the narration of the words of the husband to his wife, and the narration of the words of a wife to her husband (in a twisted form in order to bring reconciliation between them). [Sahih Muslim, Book 32, Hadith #6303]
Every time they kindled the fire of war, Allah extinguished it; and they (ever) strive to make mischief on earth. And Allah does not like the Mufsidun (mischief¬makers). (Al-Ma’idah 5:64)

  • THEY ARE LAZY IN IBAADAH

And nothing prevents their contributions from being accepted from them except that they disbelieved in Allah and in His Messenger (Muhammad SAW); and that they came not to As-Salat (the prayer) except in a lazy state; and that they offer not contributions but unwillingly. (At-Tawbah 9:54)
Abu Huraira (RA) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said “The heaviest salat for the hypocrite is that of Isha’a and Fajr and if they knew what was in them they would have attended them even if it meant crawling, and I have a strong desire to order the salat to be established, then order a man to lead the people in salat then I would go with some men carrying bundles of wood to a people not attending the salat and burn their houses on them.” [al-Bukhari (657) and Muslim (651)]

  • HE PAYS ATTENTION TO FANCY DRESS AND FLOWERED SPEECH AND FORGETS TO PURIFY HIS HEART

And when you look at them, their bodies please you; and when they speak, you listen to their words. They are as blocks of wood propped up. They think that every cry is against them. They are the enemies, so beware of them. May Allah curse them! How are they denying (or deviating from) the Right Path? (Al-Munafiqun 63:4)

  • HE LIKES TO TAKE HIS DISPUTES TO THE KAAFFIR COURTHOUSE

Have you seen those (hypocrites) who claim that they believe in that which has been sent down to you, and that which was sent down before you, and they wish to go for judgment (in their disputes) to the Taghut (false judges, etc.) while they have been ordered to reject them? But Shaitan (Satan) wishes to lead them far astray. (An-Nisa 4:60)

  • THEY HAVE TWO FACES AND TWO TONGUES

And when it is said to them (hypocrites) : “Believe as the people (followers of Muhammad Peace be upon him , Al-Ansar and Al-Muhajirun) have believed,” they say: “Shall we believe as the fools have believed?” Verily, they are the fools, but they know not. (Al-Baqarah 2:13)
And when they meet those who believe, they say: “We believe,” but when they are alone with their Shayatin (devils – polytheists, hypocrites, etc.), they say: “Truly, we are with you; verily, we were but mocking.” (Al-Baqarah 2:14)
Allah mocks at them and gives them increase in their wrong-doings to wander blindly. (Al-Baqarah 2:15)
