The State Of A Believer And A Hypocrite

Posted in Miscellaneous with tags , , , , , , , , on October 1, 2016 by TheAuthenticBase

[The Believer]

“And the believer – subhaanAllaah, glory be to You, O Lord – is liked by everyone no matter what. Why?

The believer isn’t fake. There is nothing you can hold against him. What he does in secret is what he does openly. There aren’t secret acts and public acts. He doesn’t have a personality in secret and a different one in public. They are both the same. So, if you were to peek into his life when he’s alone, you would find him even better than he is in public. If you were to see him at home at night, you would find him either praying, sleeping, eating suhoor, or reciting the Quraan. There is nothing you can hold against him. There is no girl he has snuck in to commit indecent acts with, nor does he have stolen money that he is counting.

His outer condition is like his inner condition. In fact, his inner condition is even better than his outer, and the early Muslims would say, “O Allaah, make our inner condition better than our outer condition, and make our outer condition good.” There is nothing you can hold against him. He has inner confidence, is sure of himself, and is relaxed.

[The Hypocrite]

As for the hypocrite, he fears that everyone will discover his faults and that they are privy to his sins. This is why it’s as if the suspicious person wants to tell people, “Take me away. Take me away.” Why? He is filled with faults, and he suspects that this person knows of them, that person found out, etc. So his whole life is full of anxiety and constriction.”

[Fee Dhilaal Soorah At-Tawbah, by Shaykh ‘Abdullaah ‘Azzaam, p.489]

The Description Of The Salaah Of The Hypocrites, By Sh. Saalih Al-Fawzaan

Posted in Ibaadah - Salaah with tags , , , , , , on April 25, 2012 by TheAuthenticBase

There are seven characteristics that Allaah and His Messenger (saw) mentioned about the salaah of the hypocrites:

1) They stand in salaah lazily.

2) They only remember Allaah a little in the salaah.

3) They show off for the people (i.e. they pray to be seen).

4) They don’t fear Allaah.

5) They don’t establish the salaah at its proper time.

6) They don’t perform the prayer in congregation.

7) They don’t have any tranquility in the salaah, instead they peck like a bird.
