In the Name of Allaah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
"And when you look at them, their bodies please you; and when they speak, you listen to their words. They are the enemies, so beware of them. May Allaah curse them! How are they denying (or deviating from) the Right Path" Q63:4
Though we have two types of hypocrisy: the minor (also called hypocrisy of actions) and the major hypocrisy (concealing disbelief while displaying belief), this short reminder is on the minor type.
Hypocrisy destroys a man's sense of reasoning, today he is sympathetic towards a course tomorrow he goes against it.
Hypocrisy takes over a man's sense of judgement, so he starts seeing good people as evil and evil people as good.
Hypocrisy takes over a man's sense of shame so he outwardly supports what he hates inwardly just to ridicule those that hate it.
Hypocrisy takes over a man's criterion to judge what is right or wrong, so his biased mindset becomes his sense of judgment.
Hypocrisy exposes the true nature of people and it takes away their dignity just as night takes away day.
Hypocrisy is like the house of cards, it makes a man's speech and arguments appear solid yet they crumble when truth appears.
Hypocrisy instantly drops the esteem of a man in the eyes of those that respect and admire him.
Hypocrisy serves as an x-ray of seeing the enemies that come in the garb of friends.
Hypocrisy makes a fool out of a seemingly intelligent individual.
Hypocrisy takes away a man's happiness.
A believer shuns hypocrisy, he strives for sincerity in whatever he says or does because soon his words and actions will be used for or against him.
