In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr (May Allah be satisfied with him) ‘The Prophet (May Allah exalt his mention and protect him from imperfection) said: “Whoever has the following four (characteristics) will be a pure hypocrite and whoever has one of the following four characteristics will have one characteristic of hypocrisy unless he gives it up. Whenever he is entrusted, he betrays (proves dishonest). Whenever he speaks, he tells a lie. Whenever he makes a covenant, he proves treacherous. And whenever he quarrels, he behaves in a very imprudent, evil and insulting manner.” (Bukhari).
