Surah Ahzab (33) 08/03/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sura Ahzab

Verses 12-13

Exposing the hypocrites

“And behold! The Hypocrites and those in whose hearts is a disease (even) say: “Allah and His Messenger promised us nothing but delusion!”  Behold! A party among them said: “Ye men of Yathrib! ye cannot stand (the attack)! therefore go back!” And a band of them ask for leave of the Prophet, saying, “Truly our houses are bare and exposed,” though they were not exposed they intended nothing but to run away.”

In these verses the Quran exposes the hypocrites.  We are given a very truthful picture of their mentality which is characteristed by cowardice, false excuses, fright and panic.  They are in a state of terror when danger looms. They try to undermine the morale of the believers, by raising doubts about Allah’s promise.
