Today's topic is honesty.

00:00:16--> 00:00:22

The province that Allahu Allah He was salam was known for his honesty. Long before Naboo.

00:00:23--> 00:00:53

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was known by the people of Makkah, who would later one day go on to reject Him and even fight wars against him as an honest human being. Because in Islam honesty is at the center of it all honesty to Allah subhana wa Tada is eemaan honesty to your family members is fulfilling their rights. Honesty to yourself is making sure that you fulfill what you need as a person spiritually physically and so on.

00:00:54--> 00:01:40

The province of Allahu It was sort of described the disbeliever the hypocrites specifically as being dishonest. I had done when I forget that I've either had the fact that there are three traits or three characteristics of a hypocrite, that when he speaks, he lies it Allah Allah when he promises he goes against it. Why that two minute Han and when he is entrusted, he betrays the trust. When we look at the Quran, we find Allah subhanaw, Matata, speaking very harshly of people who are not honest, because the lack of honesty not only doesn't hurt the individual, once you get used to lying and betraying other people, it's addictive. One lie in another 100 lies to cover it. Once you break

00:01:40--> 00:01:47

a promise, it's hard to go back to being trustworthy, because trust is hard to build, very easy to break.

00:01:49--> 00:02:20

Now beyond this the individual harm, there is a societal impact, economies collapse, oppression spreads. A group of people who are dishonest will continue to profit while everyone else is either forced to become dishonest, or they will suffer. Unfortunately, we look at many Muslim countries across the world and this is where they are. This warning against his honesty is what we find in Surah Al Mustafa.

00:02:21--> 00:02:27

This is surah number 83. We're going to briefly look at the opening verses of the surah.

00:02:28--> 00:02:42

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Why you little Moto 15 will be to those who give less, meaning what they're supposed to give in a transaction. What they had promised they would give, they cheat.

00:02:43--> 00:02:50

They're wrong with people, they harm other people. This level of dishonesty has spread through society.

00:02:51--> 00:03:30

Specifically, when it comes to our transactions, if there's an opportunity to get a one up on someone will do it will harm to the person and throw them under the bus, if it means that we will benefit. I mean, there are friends of mine who sell on Amazon and they share with me all the time that people will do returns and even though the policy clearly states that you can't will return a garment that's been worn, the garment has clearly been used. It's been used for the occasion that was required. And now that that occasion is gone, it's being returned. This is dishonesty, specifically a violation. But the cost is too much to follow up on this study, let it go. And those

00:03:30--> 00:04:10

perpetrating the crime are very familiar that they will get away with it. Allah subhana wa Tada says in verse number two, I let the oil and gas use the phone who when they take a measure from people take it in full Are you that guy who wasn't only a pseudo, but if they give by measure or by weight to them, they cause loss, meaning they receive full payment. But when it comes time for them to give, they always under deliver. And I have when I can't normally do they don't think that they will be resurrected. The Yeoman Alim for a tremendous day. Yo may or may not see that overnight I mean, a day in which all of mankind will stand before their Lord.

00:04:11--> 00:04:22

May Allah subhanho wa Taala greatness Littlefield inability to be honest, that we develop this honesty and everything that we don't lie to people that we don't cheat people because that's not what a believer does.

00:04:23--> 00:04:45

A believer doesn't betray someone. His word matters when he or she says something they follow through on it. If honestly, you could return back to our lives, we would be influences of positivity and strength. Wherever we go, whoever we interact with Allah subhanaw taala was all set along when I see them.

00:04:47--> 00:04:59
