Sunnats and Aadaab of Speech – Part 6

1. One should always speak the truth. One should never speak lies.

عن عبد الله، قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: عليكم بالصدق، فإن الصدق يهدي إلى البر، وإن البر يهدي إلى الجنة، وما يزال الرجل يصدق ويتحرى الصدق حتى يكتب عند الله صديقا، وإياكم والكذب، فإن الكذب يهدي إلى الفجور، وإن الفجور يهدي إلى النار، وما يزال الرجل يكذب ويتحرى الكذب حتى يكتب عند الله كذابا (صحيح مسلم، الرقم: 2607)

Hazrat Abdullah bin Mas’ood (radhiyallahu anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Hold firm to truthfulness, for truthfulness leads one towards piety, and piety leads one towards Jannah. A person will continue to speak the truth and endeavour to always remain upon truthfulness (at all times), until he will be written as a siddeeq (extremely truthful person) by Allah Ta‘ala. Refrain from lies, as lies leads one towards sin (and vice), and sin leads one towards the fire of Jahannum. A person will continue to speak lies and tries to remain upon this habit of speaking lies (at all times), until he will be written as a great liar by Allah Ta‘ala.”
