Quote of the Day- Hypocrites

It is reported that ‘Abdullâh b. Mas’ûd – Allâh be pleased with him – said:

The example of the believer, the unbeliever and the hypocrite is that of  three people who arrived at a valley. One of them descended and passed through  to the other side. One of them descended until he reached half way, when the  third man on the edge of the valley called to him, “Woe to you, where are you  going? You will die. Come back.” The man who made it to the other side called to  him, “Come and be saved.” So [the man in the middle of the valley] kept looking  back and forth at the two [on each side of the valley], when a flood came into  the valley and drowned him. The man who passed through to the other side is the  believer; the one who drowned is the munâfiq (hypocrite) –

(They are) swaying between this and that, belonging neither to these nor to those, and he whom Allah sends astray, you will not find for him a way (to the truth – Islam).

Quran 4:143

And the one who remained at the edge of the valley [not  able to escape  the flood and pass] is the kâfir (unbeliever).
