The activities of hypocrites are carried out with planning and intelligence and are aimed at destroying the Islamic framework and spreading division, conflict and internal scepticism within the ranks of the Islamic group and society.
The Qur’an made much mention of the hypocrites and seriously warned us of them because of the danger of their activities and their far-reaching influence. Similarly, the Qur’an directed its warning, admonition and threat to them, saying:
“And when began to say the hypocrites and those in whose hearts was disease that: `Promised us not Allah and His Apostle but (it was only) a deception.'” Holy Qur’an (Ahzab 33: 12)
“â€¦They are the enemy (of yours), so beware you of them! May Allah annihilate them, whence do they deviate.” Holy Qur’an (Munaafiqun 63: 4)
“If the hypocrites and those in whose hearts is a disease and the agitators in the city desist not, We shall certainly rouse you up against them, they shall not be allowed to be your neighbour in it, but a little while.” Holy Qur’an (Ahzab 33: 60)
It is very important that we should study the phrase “they are the enemies” which occurred in the last verse. This is obviously an identification and an emphasis for implementing danger, the source of which is that this covert disgruntled element is trying to disguise itself and infiltrate into the ranks of the Islamic group, spread its poisonous utterances and set its snares.
