Traits of Hypocrisy Part 4
Delivered by Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq on Friday 10th January 2020 at Al Kawthar Academy, Leicester
This seven-part series details the different types of hypocrites and their various traits. The dangers of adopting these traits is emphasised so that the believers identify and avoid them.
The fourth part of this series begins by covering verse 204 of Sūrat al-Baqarah. From this, quarrelsomeness is deduced as a trait of hypocrisy. It is explained how hypocrites will go to various lengths in trying to convince others of their position – whilst being verbose, excessively swearing oaths and even doing so falsely. This is explained to be a consequence of the hypocrite seeing his objective rather than the truth as important.
The opposite is the conduct of a believer and encouragement is given to follow it. Benefits of being silent and minimizing arguments are proven through the sunnah as well as real-life observations; such as argumentative people not being loved by others.
The talk emphasizes that Islam, although disagreements are unavoidable, teaches us to manage the disagreements in a good manner; such as not extending them to other people or things. Towards the end of the talk, the ill of shunning a parent into a retirement home is mentioned.
