عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ‏:‏ عَلَيْكُمْ بِالصِّدْقِ، فَإِنَّ الصِّدْقَ يَهْدِي إِلَى الْبِرِّ، وَإِنَّ الْبِرَّ يَهْدِي إِلَى الْجَنَّةِ، وَإِنَّ الرَّجُلَ يَصْدُقُ حَتَّى يُكْتَبَ عِنْدَ اللهِ صِدِّيقًا، وَإِيَّاكُمْ وَالْكَذِبَ، فَإِنَّ الْكَذِبَ يَهْدِي إِلَى الْفُجُورِ، وَالْفُجُورَ يَهْدِي إِلَى النَّارِ، وَإِنَّ الرَّجُلَ لَيَكْذِبُ حَتَّى يُكْتَبَ عِنْدَ اللهِ كَذَّابًا‏.‏

The Truth saves a man and lies destroys himself!

 

By Mohammad Rafique Etesame

 

Abdullah reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "You must be truthful. Truthfulness leads to dutifulness and dutifulness leads to the Garden. A man continues to tell the truth until he is written as a siddiq with Allah. Beware of lying. Lying leads to deviance and deviance leads to the Fire. A man continues to lie until he is written as a liar with Allah."

 

(Grade: Sahih (Al-Albani)

 

This hadith reveals that a man should be a truthful one should not be a liar. Because the truthfulness gives guarantee to the everlasting success as the holy Qur’an makes mention,” Allah says: This is a day in which their truthfulness profits the truthful, for theirs are Gardens underneath which rivers flow, wherein they are secure forever, Allah taking pleasure in them and they in Him. That is the great triumph” (Al-Ma'idah (The Table Spread) 5:119).

 

As it is said that “The truth saves and lies destroys." It means that a man should be a truthful one in every walk of life i.e. to his parents, to his children, to his business fellows, to his relatives and to other people etc.

 

Similarly, he should save himself from lying, because a liar attains no reliable status in the society and he remains a rejected one and a failure one in every walk of life. So, a man should be careful about the truth and lying, because its profit and loss goes to his own self and not to anyone else. May Allah Almighty gives us power to act upon this hadith, amin.
