It is a Makkan surah and contains 11 verses. Its subject matter is focused on the hypocrites, or munafiqun, who posed a threat to the early Muslim community in Mecca. The Surah Munafiqun warns these hypocrites about the consequences of their actions and urges them to repent and return to the true path of Islam. The surah begins with an admonition from Allah to the munafiqun, warning them that their duplicity will be exposed and their hypocris will not be tolerated. The Surah Munafiqun then emphasizes that the munafiqun are foolish for thinking that their false faith can be hidden from Allah. It also states that Allah will not forgive them, and that they will be severely punished on the Day of Judgment.
