Can a person have belief and hypocrisy in his heart at the sametime?

asked 833936 yaqin's gravatar image

In the name of God! Hello, dear brother. Answer your question in the Qur'an. The Quran says:When the hypocrites come unto thee (O Muhammad), they say: We bear witness that thou art indeed Allah's messenger. And Allah knoweth that thou art indeed His messenger, and Allah beareth witness that the hypocrites indeed are speaking falsely. ( 1 ) They make their faith a pretext so that they may turn (men) from the way of Allah. Verily evil is that which they are wont to do, ( 2 ) That is because they believed, then disbelieved, therefore their hearts are sealed so that they understand not. ( 3 ) And when thou seest them their figures please thee; and if they speak thou givest ear unto their speech. (They are) as though they were blocks of wood in striped cloaks. They deem every shout to be against them. They are the enemy, so beware of them. Allah confound them! How they are perverted! ( 4)...إِذَا جَاءَكَ الْمُنَافِقُونَ قَالُوا نَشْهَدُ إِنَّكَ لَرَسُولُ اللَّهِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ إِنَّكَ لَرَسُولُهُ وَاللَّهُ يَشْهَدُ إِنَّ الْمُنَافِقِينَ لَكَاذِبُونَ ( 1 ) اتَّخَذُوا أَيْمَانَهُمْ جُنَّةً فَصَدُّوا عَنْ سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ ۚ إِنَّهُمْ سَاءَ مَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ ( 2 ) ذَٰلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمْ آمَنُوا ثُمَّ كَفَرُوا فَطُبِعَ عَلَىٰ قُلُوبِهِمْ فَهُمْ لَا يَفْقَهُونَ ( 3 ) ۞ وَإِذَا رَأَيْتَهُمْ تُعْجِبُكَ أَجْسَامُهُمْ ۖ وَإِنْ يَقُولُوا تَسْمَعْ لِقَوْلِهِمْ ۖ كَأَنَّهُمْ خُشُبٌ مُسَنَّدَةٌ ۖ يَحْسَبُونَ كُلَّ صَيْحَةٍ عَلَيْهِمْ ۚ هُمُ الْعَدُوُّ فَاحْذَرْهُمْ ۚ قَاتَلَهُمُ اللَّهُ ۖ أَنَّىٰ يُؤْفَكُونَ ( 4 )

@persiangulf1666, salaam beloved, al hamdulilah for quranic ayats that you presented and may Allah azza wal jall bless you, ma'shallah. Allow me to build on the sound foundation you have laid to my question, inshallah. It is reported by Sa'id al Khudri that the Rasul swas said, " THERE ARE FOUR KINDS OF HEARTS: A HEART WHICH IS PURE WITH A BRIGHT LIGHT: A HEART WHICH IS WRAPPED AROUND ITS COVER: A HEART WHICH IS REVERSED, AND A HEART WHICH IS FLATTENED. THE PURE HEART IS THE BELIEVERS HEART WHICH SHINES WITH THE LIGHT OF IMAN. THE WRAPPED HEART IS THAT OF A KAFFIR. THE REVERSED HEART IS THAT OF THE HYPOCRITE WHO KNOWS THE TRUTH BUT DENIES IT: AS FOR THE FLATTENED HEART, IT COMPRISES BOTH FAITH AND HYPOCRISY: THE EXAMPLE OF IMAN IN IT IS LIKE THAT OF A VEGETABLE WHICH GROWS IN PURE WATER, AND THE EXAMPLE OF HYPOCRISY IN IT IS LIKE THAT OF A WOUND WHICH IS STRECTCHED BY PUS AND BLOOD, WHICHEVER SUBSTANCE ( PURE WATER OR PUS AND BLOOD) OVERWHELMS THE OTHER, IT OVERWHELMS THE HEART." (SAHIH MUSLIM) This haqq we as muslims must be made aware of and once we are we need to be reminded for reminding profits the beilevers. May Allah azz wal jall protect us. Sslaam

If the person feels he has falseness in a certain situation then he is false. If the person is true from the bottom in a situation and feels this than he is truthful... To compare falseness with belief is questionable, for if a guy has belief then he has no falseness.. But if he feels falseness then he has no belief.. So when believing on God, then you believe in only him.. For he is the superior, he is the everlasting and he is the truth. For the thing that matter the most is "The Truth". For how could any depend on lies? So when somebody is with the Truth, then good is with him. For the truth will conquer and win. I only speak the truth, for the truth is the way. And God he knows that the truth will last to the end... For lies fade away and the truth stay´s always near.
