Malik - Sura: 63. Al-Munafiqun - The Hypocrites

  1. When the hypocrites come to you, they say: "We bear witness that you are indeed the Rasool of Allah." Allah knows that you are indeed His Rasool, and Allah bears witness that the hypocrites are liars.

  2. They use their faith as a disguise, and thus debar others from the Way of Allah. Evil is indeed what they do.

  3. This is because they believed and then renounced their faith. Their hearts are sealed, therefore, they are devoid of understanding.

  4. When you see them, their good stature pleases you; and when they speak, you listen to what they say. Yet they are as worthless as hollow pieces of propped up timber. Every shout they hear, they think it to be against them. They are your enemies, so guard yourselves against them. May Allah destroy them! How perverse they are!

  5. When it is said to them: "Come, the Rasool of Allah will pray for your forgiveness," they shake their heads and you see them turning away with arrogance.

  6. It is the same, whether you pray for their forgiveness or not, Allah is not going to forgive them. Surely Allah does not guide the transgressors.

  7. They are the same people who say: "Do not give anything to those who follow the Rasool of Allah until they have deserted him." To Allah belong the treasures of the heavens and the earth; but the hypocrites cannot understand.

  8. They say: "When we return to Madinah, the honorable ones will soon drive out the mean ones." But the honor belongs to Allah, to His Rasool and to the believers; but the hypocrites do not know.

  9. O believers! Let neither your riches nor your children divert you from the remembrance of Allah. Those who will do so, it is they who shall be the real losers.

  10. Spend, in charity and in the Cause of Allah, out of the sustenance which We have bestowed on you before that time when death will come to anyone of you, and he shall say: "O my Rabb! If only you would reprieve me for a little while then I would give out everything in charity, and be among the righteous."

  11. But Allah reprieves no soul when its term comes to an end. Allah is well aware of all your actions.
