Yes, Islam exists very much. Islam condemn hypocrisy. Anything specific to ask?

If hypocrisy is a sin, then a religion has to exist to class it as one. In fact, it is a sin - read here: http://www.eternallifeministries.org/lrs_hypocrisy.htm . It actually makes no difference whether there is a religion to tell you whether something is sinful or not. Any action that does harm to the world we live in, including our fellow men, is against the principles we universally understand as 'good'.

I believe that yes, it would still exist, and hopefully many religions would actually be much better for it. I think some kind of religion will always exist because it fills a void that people need filled. It would be interesting to see what people would believe, if there could be no hypocrisy in their beliefs. I really do think it would improve religion immensely.
