Hypocrites of Today Worse

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Whoever dies without having participated in Jihad or having prepared himself for Jihad, dies on one of the traits of hypocrisy.” [Sahih Muslim]

Imam Nawawi (rahmatullah alaihi) writes in his commentary of this hadith: “And this means that whoever does this, in reality in this attribute he has become like the Munafiqeen (hypocrites) who used to stay behind from participating in Jihad, because to abandon Jihad is one of the traits of hypocrisy.” [Sharh Muslim]

The Sahabi Hudhaifah Ibn al-Yaman (radi Allahu anhu) said about the hypocrites in the latter part of his life: “The hypocrites of today are more evil than those at the time of Rasulullah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) for then they used to hide their hypocrisy and now, they audaciously show their hypocrisy.” [Hilyatul Awliya]

Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) says: “And if they had intended to set out they would surely have made some preparation for it.” [Quran: Surah Taubah, Ayat 46]
