(2:9)They only deceive themselves but realize not!

1 min read

 (Fain would they deceive Allah and those who believe, but they only deceive themselves, and realise (it) not!)

The following excerpt is taken from “tafhim ul Quran” under the commentary of the above verse:

“These people delude themselves that their hypocritical behaviour will profit them when in fact it will prove harmful both in this world and the Next. A hypocrite may be able to fool people for a while, but it does not last long; his hypocrisy is ultimately seen through. As for the Next Life, it is obvious that his claim to be a true believer is contradicted by his own actions and is thus quite worthless.”
