With the rise of advanced technology and communication, we have found ourselves in a state where we spend a lot of our time engaging in idle talk. This has opened doors to a lot of different influences coming together, making slander and gossip much more commonplace. Apathy towards the consequences of these sins has contributed to the greater prevalence of hypocrisy among the youth. We now see people carelessly advising others without sincere intentions, preaching without practicing, calling each other “hypocrites”, and backbiting others without being aware of the heavy repercussions. The fear of being hypocritical has disappeared from the hearts of the people today, whereas during the time of the Prophet PBUH, that fear was always present among the companions.
