Inwardly different from the Outside

It is reported from al-Hasan Al-Basri may Allah have mercy on him that he said:

“It used to be said: it is part of al-Nifaq (hypocrisy) to be inwardly different from what you are on the outside, to say one thing and do another and to be different in how you enter and how you leave. And the root of al-nifaq is lying.

[“Abu Bakr al-Khara’iti, Masawi al-Akhlaq wa Madhmumiha page 62″]
