Hadith Explanation

The Eloquent Hypocrite

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The thing I fear most for my Ummah is the eloquent hypocrite.” [Ahmad]

A hypocrite (Munafiq) is a person who hates or dislikes Islam yet claims to be a Muslim. The damage from Munafiqeen is far worse than the damage that can be caused by the Kuffar. This is because since they claim to be Muslims, Muslims trust them and have their guards down with them. They attack from within the community. The enemy within your house can do more damage than the one outside it.

Eloquent hypocrites artfully use their tongues to sow seeds of doubt (in Islam) among the Muslims. That is why Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) has said that the place of the Munafiqeen in Jahannum is worse than the place the Kuffar will occupy.

When we look at how many Muslims are led astray by people claiming to know Islam and ostensibly following it, it is no wonder that Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) worried so much for his Ummah regarding artful hypocrites.
