AL–MUNAFIQUN المنافقون
“The Hypocrites.” Title of the LXIIIrd Surah of the Qur’an, whose opening verses are:-
“When the Hypocrites come to thee, they say ‘We bear witness that thou art the Sent One of God.’ God knoweth that thou art His Sent One: but God beareth witness that the hypocrites do surely lie. Their faith have they used as a cloak, and they turn aside others from the way of God! Evil are all their doings. This, for that they believed, then became unbelievers! Therefore hath a seal been set upon their hearts, and they understand not.”
