Islamic etiquette: hypocrisy

“Most hateful it is with Allâh that you say that which you do not do” [al-Saff 61:3]

“Enjoin you Al-Birr (piety and righteousness and each and every act of obedience to Allaah) on the people and you forget (to practise it) yourselves, while you recite the Scripture! Have you then no sense?” [al-Baqarah 2:44]

Assalamu alaykum,
I really hate hypocrisy and I do try all best to teach my kids to stay well away from it. Insh'Allah they will.
Just a good reminder for us all. It's not good to go around saying things that we don't do ourselves.
Sometimes kids can get into the habit of telling off their peers and then ending up doing it themselves.
I always say to my kids to look at themselves and make sure that words and actions are the same.
May Allah protect us from hypocrisy.Amin
