Hadith on Nifaq: Even hypocrites and evildoers can recite Quran

Abu Sa’id al-Khudri reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “There will be successors after sixty years who waste the prayer and follow their lusts, so they will soon meet an evil ending (19:59). Then there will be successors who recite the Quran but it does not go beyond their throats. There are three who recite the Quran: a believer, a hypocrite, and an evildoer.

عن أبي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيَّ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ يَكُونُ خَلْفٌ بَعْدَ سِتِّينَ سَنَةً أَضَاعُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَاتَّبَعُوا الشَّهَوَاتِ فَسَوْفَ يَلْقَوْنَ غَيًّا ثُمَّ يَكُونُ خَلْفٌ يَقْرَؤُونَ الْقُرْآنَ لَا يَعْدُو تَرَاقِيَهُمْ وَيَقْرَأُ الْقُرْآنَ ثَلَاثَةٌ مُؤْمِنٌ وَمُنَافِقٌ وَفَاجِرٌ
