00:00:58--> 00:01:02

So today we are covering a very beautiful I have

00:01:04--> 00:01:11

lots of how to what Allah says yeah, you will lead in multiple Allah will kulu Masada fee

00:01:12--> 00:01:18

or those who believe the conscious of Allah and be with those that are truthful.

00:01:19--> 00:01:24

truthfulness is a cifa, a characteristic

00:01:25--> 00:01:31

that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam promoted and taught his companions to live by.

00:01:33--> 00:01:42

In one narration episode, a long audio set him said a believer will never lie. That's just something he or she won't do. They won't lie.

00:01:43--> 00:01:47

There are many other sins they can commit but lying is not one of them.

00:01:49--> 00:01:53

The person who says La ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah,

00:01:54--> 00:01:57

in reality has spoken the ultimate truth.

00:01:58--> 00:02:01

That ultimate truth is that there is only one Allah.

00:02:03--> 00:02:09

And no matter what the cost is for speaking that truth, once you've spoken that truth, there's no unspeaking it.

00:02:10--> 00:02:16

So now there are consequences of speaking it. There are restrictions, there could be persecution.

00:02:17--> 00:02:22

But if you can handle this truth, then you are ready to handle any other truth in the world.

00:02:23--> 00:02:25

Speaking the truth may come at a cost.

00:02:27--> 00:02:35

People may discredit you, they may look down upon you, they may mock you for speaking the truth, you might get yourself in a lot of trouble.

00:02:36--> 00:02:37

But never shy away from it.

00:02:39--> 00:02:41

Because once a person gets into the habit of lying,

00:02:42--> 00:02:44

it takes 100 lies to cover up one.

00:02:46--> 00:02:53

And that person will continue to lie until they are written in the books of Allah subhanho wa Taala as a liar.

00:02:55--> 00:03:02

And that's something that no one ever wants, that they are written in the books of Allah xojo as a liar.

00:03:04--> 00:03:14

On the other hand, when a person speaks the truth Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that the individual is written in the books of Allah as a truthful person.

00:03:16--> 00:03:20

Without truthful truthfulness, there would be no trust in society.

00:03:21--> 00:03:23

There'd be no trust in our community.

00:03:25--> 00:03:31

That's why we must train our children and the young folks in our community,

00:03:32--> 00:03:34

to learn to speak the truth.

00:03:36--> 00:03:37

a reality

00:03:39--> 00:03:40

that is built on a lie

00:03:41--> 00:03:44

isn't really a reality. It's false.

00:03:46--> 00:03:50

And we find people that they build their life around lies.

00:03:51--> 00:03:54

When the people who they've lied to become aware

00:03:56--> 00:04:20

that they've been lied to. It hurts them, it breaks them. And it takes a long time to recover. If they do end up recovering that is it breaks marriages apart. It breaks Family Ties apart. Friendships are constantly being destroyed because someone just couldn't tell the truth. Now, sometimes we may lie thinking that if I

00:04:21--> 00:04:31

speak the truth, it'll break our relationship. Well, that's for that person to decide. And if it does break the relationship because there's something bad that happened.

00:04:33--> 00:04:59

And you were involved in particular and the bad that happened, let's say for example, if I cussed at someone and they asked me, did you cuss at me and I lie? Well, that's my fault. I shouldn't have custom the first place. And I think this is one of the most common reasons why people lie. They do things that they aren't proud of. They do things for a quick, temporary satisfaction. And then when it comes time to face the cause

00:05:00--> 00:05:12

sequences of what's been done. They run away. And that's when they resort to they're lying and being dishonest. That's where things begin to crumble and break down.

00:05:15--> 00:05:21

I sort of lost it a long while he was set and never spoke a lie. He always spoke the truth.

00:05:22--> 00:05:53

We look at the companions say that Abu Bakar declared the last one, the same thing. A truthful man he was. He wasn't just truthful in his words, but he was truthful in his actions, by following up his words with actions that match them. He was truthful in his intentions. What he believed is what he said and what he said is what he did. And that's the full circle of sit. That's a complete circle of being truthful.

00:05:55--> 00:06:39

So we ask Allah subhana wa tada that he blesses us with the ability to be truthful that we speak the truth, a laws of nature. In this verse, he says to us all those who believe be conscious of a law by being envy with those are kulu, Masada him who speak the truth, because it's contagious. Goodness is contagious, just as evil as one person speaks the truth and you hang out with them and you pick it up from them, some automa they say a saga clean and this ayah refers to a solid, that be with the righteous and the reason why a lot uses the word saga thing to refer to solidly theme is because saw the theme means to be truthful and solid, he means the righteous because those who are righteous

00:06:39--> 00:07:25

only gained their righteousness, through speaking the truth. If you wish to maintain your credibility with people, be written among the truthful ones in the books of law, not have to face the repercussions of lying in his dunya and in the hereafter. The avoid lies, speak the truth, to the best of your ability. What's outside of your ability, inshallah, you are not accountable for that law forgive you. But to the best of your knowledge, always speak the truth. And when we speak the truth, it's contagious. It'll spread. society will start speaking the truth our spouse, our children, our students, the world around us will also start being truthful. And when truth spreads,

00:07:25--> 00:07:37

it brings peace with it. Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us and preserve us and allow us all to live lives of truth. Well said Allahu Allah Allah, Mohammed Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
