POEM: Avoid An-Nifaaq / Hypocrisy

In the Name of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

The Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him,
Told us about hypocrites and their three signs:
First: these hypocrites whom Allah hates have false
Exteriors, foul motives, and are full of lies.

They are actors or liars behind a mask,
Almost everything about them are untrue -
Their names are fake -their acts full of pretense, and
Lying is their hobby that they love to do.

Second: promises they make they'll never keep,
Form an agreement with them -they'll turn it down,
It's their habit to cancel plans without an
Explanation but smiles on seeing you frown.

Third: when entrusted, they'll be glad to betray.
They are deceivers and pure fakes -fools are they
To think they can make Muslims look bad without
Being asked about their deeds on Judgment Day.

Hypocrites don't have the following good traits:
Truthfulness, noble manners, never unfair,
Enjoining what's right, tears that prove they're sincere,
Praying on time, and sweet willingness to share.

Examples of these fakes are atheists who
Set up a channel and load videos of sins,
Misleading Muslims to dress immodestly,
Act immorally or lie like it's nothing -

Other hypocrites commit what's forbidden,
Disobeying God in mistreating others -
To make some think Islam is wrong, when we are
Taught to be just and kind to one another.

This is why Allah warns hypocrites of Hell -
They are liars, pretenders and deceivers -
Guilty of many evil deeds, including
Their constant plotting against true believers.

How to deal with them: pray to God against them -
Or pray that Allah guides them to true Islam.
Avoid getting close to them, keep a distance,
Don't trust them, and don't take part in their vile plans.

With them be well-mannered just as with others -
Stay friendly in general, but not too close.
Take note: Allah sees all. Judgment Day is true.
Who are Allah's true friends - only Allah knows.

May Allah welcome us in Firdaus/Heaven,
May Allah accept all the good deeds we do,
And may Allah reward us with His Mercy
For hating falsehood and for loving the truth.

May Allah the Most Merciful forgive us always,
accept all our good deeds and join us with His loved ones in Firdaus/Heaven
near Him and His noble Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam.
