Stab the body and it heals, but injure the heart and the wound lasts a lifetime. Betrayal applies to any violation of a presumptive contract, trust or confidence to a person, a cause or one’s country whether in thought or deeds. The Prophet (PBUH) said,” Whoever bears arms against us and whoever cheats is not one of us.” Islam views betrayal, disloyalty, cheating and deception as heinous sins a source of shame to the one guilty of committing them both in this world and the next. Every traitor will have a banner on the Day of Resurrection and it will be said: “This is the betrayer of so and so.” There are four characteristics of a true hypocrite: one who betrays, lies, breaks promises and while disputing resorts to slander. Betraying does not end at betraying. The effects of betrayal include endless pain, shock, loss and grief, morbid preoccupation, damaged self-esteem, self doubting, anger and even worse like suicides or death. Betrayal can cause mental contamination like anxiety disorders. Motives of betraying are the Satanic emotions.

When the betrayers fail to realize the lowly and cunning trap of Satan they don’t stop their immoral behavior instead Satan keeps them stirring up with an endless circle of misguidance and pollution making them lose their logic and the ability to reason. Quran mentions it is a consequence of their violating the covenant that they are condemned and that is why their ‘Hearts are caused to Harden.’ With Satan’s justification of betrayal, betrayers think that God is not aware of their actions. And for believers, we are commanded to stand up for our rights in the face of any form of violation. Those who are betrayed are commanded by Allah to fight back equitably. Quran mentions when you are betrayed you should mobilize against them in the same manner. Betrayers don’t realize that they are only betraying their own souls and they are destined to lose the battle. Allah has promised to defend those on the straight path. If they deceive us, Allah will suffice us .They think they only know plotting and scheming, but Allah is the most Wise. He has already plotted against them instead!
