Honesty and Truthfulness: Must Have Traits for Every Muslim

Honesty and Truthfulness: Must Have Traits for Every Muslim
Honesty and truthfulness are two interrelated traits. A true Muslim must have both traits. Both the Quran and hadith has emphasized on being honest and truthful in all the matters of life. Here are a few verses of Quran about honesty and truthfulness:

• “O you who believe! Fear God, and be with those who are true (in word and deeds).” (Quran 9:119)

• “Woe unto those who give short measure, those who, when they are to receive their due from people, demand that it be given in full but when they have to measure or weigh whatever they owe to others, give less than what is due. Do they not know that they are bound to be raised from the dead (and called to account) on an awesome Day, the Day when all men shall stand before the Sustainer of all the worlds?” (Quran 83:1-6)

Let us now see what hadith says about this:

• “Truthfulness leads to righteousness, and righteousness leads to Paradise. In addition, a man keeps on telling the truth until he becomes a truthful person. Falsehood leads to wickedness and evil-doing, and wickedness leads to the (Hell) Fire, and a man may keep on telling lies till he is written before God, as a liar”. (Saheeh Al-Bukhari)

• “Honesty descended from the Heavens and settled in the roots of the hearts of men (faithful believers), and then the Quran was revealed and the people read the Quran, (and learnt it from it) and also learnt from the sayings and traditions. Both the Quran and the traditions strengthened their honesty. (Saheeh Al-Bukhari)

Both the Quran and hadith have made it very clear that honesty and truthfulness are two must have traits for every Muslim.

What is right truthfulness?

Does a person who is truthful and honest, but does not believe in God, make it to paradise?

If everyone was thinking the same thing, then no one would be thinking at all.

Good question. But as a non theists, I don't think we believe in Paradise so who cares if we go there? It's like me wondering if I'll make it to Shangri-La one day. Aint gonna happen. Tongue

No:
"And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers" Quran 3:85

"Truly, the religion with Allah is Islam. Those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) did not differ except, out of mutual jealousy, after knowledge had come to them. And whoever disbelieves in the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allah, then surely, Allah is Swift in calling to account" Quran 3:19

"They desire to put out the light of Allah with their mouths, and Allah will not consent save to perfect His light, though the unbelievers are averse" Quran 9:32

Al #90 Muh pedo Wrote:Entering paradise is the God's decision only. Muslims don't say that our faith only will entering us to paradise or we are the favorite God's people and He will not judge us... etc
It would seem though Al that the Quran does say that.

"Lo! Allah wrongeth not even of the weight of an ant; and if there is a good deed, He will double it and will give (the doer) from His presence an immense reward" Quran 4:40

"That day mankind will issue forth in scattered groups to be shown their deeds (6) And whoso doeth good an atom's weight will see it then (7) And whoso doeth ill an atom's weight will see it then" Quran 99:6-8

Everything we did and will do in life will be recorded and we will be judged on everything. In one simple word, it's Justice.

So, are you really have problems to understand what I wrote in that post?



And EqualAtheist asked:

Does a person who is truthful and honest, but does not believe in God, make it to paradise?

Then I replied:

So, where is the problem?

Are you shying or something and can't write, and you only just quoting?
Tell us what do you "think" it's wrong????
