A Rare Commodity In The World
TRUTHFULNESS is a pretty RARE COMMODITY today. A FEW PEOPLE SPEAK IT but a BIG CHUNK SITS ON IT. Once truth EVAPORATES and DRIES away from your systems, you LOSE YOUR HUMANNESS and begin the BEASTLY ACTS because anyway, nothing matters. When you GET USED TO SPEAKING the truth, it BECOMES YOUR VIRTUE. Your virtue becomes YOUR LIFESTYLE and your PIETY, GOODNESS and REAL PURPOSE manifest. IT’S EASY TO ASSIST the truthful. ALLAH ADMITS YOU into PARADISE because you are truthful. Adam in the GARDENS OF EDEN spoke the truth and he WAS FORGIVEN. All WANT TO BOOK A PLACE IN PARADISE and this won’t happen if truthfulness becomes a RARE COMMODITY in your world.
When you keep OPENNESS and TRUTHFULNESS IN YOUR LIFE, God Almighty gets your name IN THE BOOK OF LIFE and records you as a true servant of his. The CONTRARY is EQUALLY CONTRARY. Adopting a PATHOLOGICAL LIEING LIFE leads to OBSCENITY. This is the TRADE of the DEVIL.
He is a MASTER in this. He GRADUATED in the ART OF LIEING. He DEBATED HIS CREATOR directly and NEVER MINCED his words. He is good in LIEING and his followers too and graduands. Telling lies can only lead to the BURNING FIRE and CHASTISEMENT. One lies until HIS NAME is finally STAMPED and SEALED in the book with his maker that he is actually good at it. But WHAT’S THE END RESULT??? It leads to DEATH and DESTRUCTION. TELL THE TRUTH even if you STAND ALONE.
حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ نُمَيْرٍ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو مُعَاوِيَةَ، وَوَكِيعٌ، قَالاَ حَدَّثَنَا الأَعْمَشُ، ح وَحَدَّثَنَا أَبُو كُرَيْبٍ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو مُعَاوِيَةَ، حَدَّثَنَا الأَعْمَشُ، عَنْ شَقِيقٍ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم “ عَلَيْكُمْ بِالصِّدْقِ فَإِنَّ الصِّدْقَ يَهْدِي إِلَى الْبِرِّ وَإِنَّ الْبِرَّ يَهْدِي إِلَى الْجَنَّةِ وَمَا يَزَالُ الرَّجُلُ يَصْدُقُ وَيَتَحَرَّى الصِّدْقَ حَتَّى يُكْتَبَ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ صِدِّيقًا وَإِيَّاكُمْ وَالْكَذِبَ فَإِنَّ الْكَذِبَ يَهْدِي إِلَى الْفُجُورِ وَإِنَّ الْفُجُورَ يَهْدِي إِلَى النَّارِ وَمَا يَزَالُ الرَّجُلُ يَكْذِبُ وَيَتَحَرَّى الْكَذِبَ حَتَّى يُكْتَبَ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ كَذَّابًا ” .
‘Abdullah reported Allah’s Messenger ﷺ as saying: It is obligatory for you to tell the truth, for truth leads to virtue and virtue leads to Paradise, and the man who continues to speak the truth and endeavours to tell the truth is eventually recorded as truthful with Allah ﷻ, and beware of telling of a lie for telling of a lie leads to obscenity and obscenity leads to Hell-Fire, and the person who keeps telling lies and endeavours to tell a lie is recorded as a liar with Allah ﷻ
