Did you notice?
63:1  When the hypocrites come unto thee, they say, “We bear witness that thou art indeed the Messenger of God.” Yet God knows that thou art indeed His Messenger, and God bears witness that the hypocrites are surely liars
63:2  They took their oaths as a shield and thus turned from the way of God. Evil indeed is that which they used to do
63:3  That is because they believed, and then disbelieved; so a seal was set upon their hearts such that they comprehend not
63:4  And when thou seest them, their bodies impress thee, and if they speak, thou listenest to their speech. [Yet] they are like leaning timbers. They suppose that every cry is against them. They are the enemy; so be wary of them. May God curse them! How are they perverted
63:5  And when it is said unto them, “Come! The Messenger of God will ask forgiveness for you,” they twist their heads, and thou seest them turning away in arrogance
63:6  It is the same for them whether thou askest forgiveness for them or thou askest forgiveness for them not; God will never forgive them. Truly God guides not iniquitous people
63:7  They are the ones who say, “Do not spend on those who are with the Messenger of God, that they may disperse.” Yet to God belong the treasuries of the heavens and the earth, but the hypocrites comprehend not
63:8  They say, “If we return to Madinah, the mightier will surely expel the weaker therefrom.” Yet unto God belongs the might and unto His Messenger and the believers, but the hypocrites know not
63:9  O you who believe! Let neither your property nor your children divert you from the remembrance of God. Whosoever does so, it is they who are the losers
63:10  And spend of that which We have provided you before death comes upon one of you and he says, “My Lord, wouldst that Thou grant me reprieve till a term nigh, that I may give charity and be among the righteous!
63:11  Yet God will not grant any soul reprieve when its term has come. And God is Aware of whatsoever you do
