In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
Quran: Chapter 4, Lan Tanalu’, Sura: 3 ‘Al e Imran’ ‘The Family of Imran’, Verse: 118- 120:
Verse 118: O you who believe! Take not as, (your) Bitanah, [close friends, advisors, consultants, protectors, helpers] those outside your religion [pagans, Jews, Christians, and hypocrites] since they will not fail to do their best to corrupt you. They desire to harm you severely. Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is far worse. Indeed We have made simple to you, the Ayat, (verses, proofs, evidences, lessons, signs, revelations) if you understand.
Verse 119: Lo! You are the ones who love them but they love you not, and you believe in all the Scriptures [i.e. you believe in the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel), while they disbelieve in your Book, the Quran]. And when they meet you, they say, “We believe.” But when they are alone, they bite the tips of their fingers at you in rage. Say: “Perish in your rage. Certainly, Allah knows what is in the breasts (all the secrets).
Verse 120: If a good befalls you, it grieves them, but if some evil over takes you, they rejoice at it. But if you remain patient and become, Al-Muttaqun, steadfast and pious (good faithful Muslim), not the least harm will their cunning do to you. Surely, Allah encompasses all that they do.
Notes by samia2010oct: Hypocrites are Muslims but they are not practicing Muslims. Hypocrites are grouped with pagans, Jews and Christians because they are not convinced enough to practice their own faith, Islam, fully & completely and because they have sympathies with pagans, Jews and Christians more than people of their own faith. Hypocrites think more for the betterment of Jews Christians and pagans than the people of their own religion.
