Truthfulness

Truthfulness

`Abdullah ‘Ibn Mas’ ud (R) relates that the Prophet (S) said: 

“Keep telling the truth,  for truthfulness leads to virtuous deeds(Birr) and virtuous deeds lead to paradise………”

Telling the truth makes a person trustworthy and honest in the eyes of him or herself, the people around them, and God. When you tell the truth you don’t have to remember what you said. Honesty and truthfulness makes any  relationship  a strong one. How will people be able to trust you if you aren’t truthful to them? People who lie, cheat, and backbite are not respected by anyone, and don’t have self- respect  for themselves. Just by telling the truth a person has more self-esteem and builds more respect for themselves.
