5 Reasons Why We Should Be Honest in Life. | Jumaah barakah everyone. Last month was quite challenging for me and my family when 3 of my siblings' positive covid-19. I have to help my mother with her business since my sister have to be quarantined.

Even though my other sister are not positive, they still have to quarantined herself and be honest about the situation. I wonder in this situation many might not truly honest and just go out without any guilty. Money tend makes people selfish right? But honesty in life is important as said in this hadith.


عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ عَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ إِنَّ الصِّدْقَ يَهْدِي إِلَى الْبِرِّ وَإِنَّ الْبِرَّ يَهْدِي إِلَى الْجَنَّةِ وَإِنَّ الرَّجُلَ لَيَصْدُقُ حَتَّى يَكُونَ صِدِّيقًا وَإِنَّ الْكَذِبَ يَهْدِي إِلَى الْفُجُورِ وَإِنَّ الْفُجُورَ يَهْدِي إِلَى النَّارِ وَإِنَّ الرَّجُلَ لَيَكْذِبُ حَتَّى يُكْتَبَ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ كَذَّابًا

From Abdullah (Abdullah bin Mas'ud) RA from the Prophet SAW said: "Surely honesty will guide to goodness, and that goodness will lead to heaven, indeed if a person who always happens honestly until he will be recorded as an honest person. And indeed a lie will lead to evil, and verily it will lead to hell. And verily if a person is always lying so that it will be recorded for him as a liar. " (HR Bukhari No: 6094) 

Status: Authentic Hadith

There are many lessons from this hadith that includes :

1. Islam is a religion that demands every Muslim to always be honest and stay away from lies in every matter whether word, deed or deed.

2. A Muslim who is always honest in terms of speech, deeds, morals, and work, it will eventually become a habit in his practice. His honest and good habits in his practice caused him to be known by the people as an honest and truthful person. This good habit will bring him closer to heaven.

3. A person who constantly lies, lies or conveys false news, the act will lead him to evil. If continued, the act would become a habitual habit to him. That act was a sin that would have caused him to be put in hell.

4. Every Muslim must always be honest and truthful in every speech, writing and deed. Say the right words, the right writing and can bring good because it will attract the mercy and forgiveness of Allah SWT and will cause him to be known as a righteous person. Remember that someone who is true, never lies at all. Avoid lying because it will destroy the truth.

Familiarize yourself with the nature of honesty and truth in speech, writing and deeds so that we will be known as honest and true people
