Al-Munāfiqūn (Arabic: سورة المنافقون‎) (The Hypocrites) is the 63rd chapter (sura) of the Qur'an with 11 verses.[1]


1 "When the hypocrites come to you they say: We bear witness that you are God's messenger. And God knows that you are indeed His messenger, and God bears witness that the hypocrites indeed are liars."

2 "They make their oaths a shelter so that they may turn men from the way of God. Truly evil is what they do."

3 "That is because they believed, then disbelieved, therefore their hearts are sealed, they do not understand."

4 "And when you see them you may be impressed by their looks, and if they speak, you listen to their speech. They are as though they were blocks of wood propped up (unable to stand on their own). They think every shout to be against them. They are the enemy, so beware of them, may God destroy them! Where are they turning away (from the truth)."

5 "And when it is said to them: Come! The messenger of God will ask forgiveness for you! they avert their faces and you see them turning away, arrogantly."

6 "Whether you ask forgiveness for them or not ask forgiveness for them, God will not forgive them. God does not guide the evil-living folk."

7 "They are who say: Spend not on behalf of those who dwell with God's messenger, perhaps they may disperse, while God's are the treasures of the heavens and the earth, but the hypocrites do not comprehend."

8 "They say: Surely, if we return to Madinah, the mightier will soon drive out the weaker, when might belongs to God and to His messenger and to the believers; but the hypocrites do not know."

9 "O you who believe, Let not your wealth nor your children distract you from remembrance of God. Those who do so, they are the losers."

10 "And spend out of what We have provided you before death come to one of you and he says: My Lord! If only You would delay me for a little while, then I would give alms and be among the righteous."

11 "God never delays a soul when its term comes, and God is Aware of what you do."
