Hadith Explanation


Two-Faced


Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “You find that among the worst people is someone who is two-faced, showing one face to some and another face to others.” [Sahih Bukhari]

Imam Nahlawi said: “It is seldom that a person who visits leaders and important people is free of spoken hypocrisy. Spoken hypocrisy consists of saying what contradicts one’s true state. It is one of the greatest of sins. It includes being two-faced.” [Reliance of the Traveller, by Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri]

“Someone told Ibn Umar (radi Allahu anhu), ‘We visit our leaders and speak, but when we leave, we say something else.’ He replied, ‘In the days of the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) we considered this hypocrisy.’” [Tabarani]
