The Hypocrites were a group of people who appeared in Madina, the city to which the prophet migrated. They just pronounced their faith by their tongues but they harbored their disbelief in their hearts, they always planned to foil the Islamic call and they allayed with the idolaters outside the city of Madina.
Al- Ged ibn Kays was one the worst hypocrite who only ostensibly declared his belief but in Islam but he harbored disbelief in his heart.
When the prophet declared that he was going to attack the Romans in Tabouk and ordered his companions to be ready but Al- Ged ibn Kays apologized to the prophet for not participating in the war pretending that he would fear to be infatuated by the beauty of the Roman women.
The prophet gave him the permission not to participate in the invasion but no sooner that the prophet gave him his consent that a verse was revealed to the prophet, the verse says:
Among them is (many) a man who says:
In fact, as it was proven later, the man didn't fear to be infatuated or fall into trail but it was his disbelief and his dishonesty and his wish to see the Muslim army defeated. This wasn't the approach of these men toward the Muslim war but it was the general approach of the hypocrites.
This is a miracle because the Holy Quran fathomed the hearts of the unbelievers and showed that they never believed, latter the angel Gabriel told the prophet all the names of the hypocrites and the prophet determined them by names on the Friday ceremony.
