Characteristics of the Hypocrites
In the Quran, Allah has exposed the plotting of the hypocrites, He has unveiled their beliefs, qualities, and made their goals clear so that the believer can be aware of them. Mankind has been separated into three groups in the commencement of Surah al-Baqarah: the believer, the disbeliever, and the hypocrite. Allah mentioned thirteen verses about the hypocrites due to their plenitude and the great harm and tribulation they bring to Islam and the Muslims.
