Al-Maidah · Juz 6 · Qur'an Tafseer

Surah al-Ma’idah Ayah 53

The Hypocrites will be Losers

When the hypocrisy of the hypocrites is exposed, the believers will be amazed. For long the believers thoughts they are with them, but no the hypocrites only pretended to be believers while in reality they were not faithful. Their claims were all lies and deceit.

Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala says,

وَيَقُولُ الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ أَهُـؤُلاءِ الَّذِينَ أَقْسَمُواْ بِاللَّهِ جَهْدَ أَيْمَـنِهِمْ إِنَّهُمْ لَمَعَكُمْ حَبِطَتْ أَعْمَـلُهُمْ فَأَصْبَحُواْ خَـسِرِينَ

“And those who believe will say: ‘Are these the men who swore their strongest oaths by Allah that they were with you?’ Their deeds are wasted, and they have become the losers.”

After their hypocrisy has been exposed and the reality behind their claims and oaths comes out in open, the believers would wonder if these were the people who used to assure them with sworn claims of friendship. These hypocrites will be ruined as everything they did just to pretend had gone to waste.


– We learn about the lies of the hypocrites. One of the traits of a hypocrite is that he lies a lot. A person who lies a lot is not trustworthy.

– The hypocrites swear a lot of oaths especially by Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala to pretend that they are really sincere. In Surah Munafiqoon ayah 1, Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala says, “When the hypocrites come to you, [O Muhammad], they say, ‘We testify that you are the Messenger of Allah .’ And Allah knows that you are His Messenger, and Allah testifies that the hypocrites are liars.”

-The importance of being loyal to the deen of Allah. the hypocrite says, “I am believer” but he is not faithful.

-Deeds of a munafiq are wasted. He is a loser in the dunya as well as the akhirah.
