Hadith Explanation


The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: "He has (really) no faith who fulfills not his trust, and he has (really) no religion who fulfills not his promise." [Baihaqi]

Always keep your word. Each time you keep a commitment you are rewarded by Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) for obeying Him. If you mix a few drops of wine in a glass full of water, it spoils the whole glass of water and makes it unfit for consumption. Similarly, dishonesty in any sphere of your life permeates and corrupts your entire nature and eeman. When a person’s words carry no weight, it only reveals his/her treacherous nature.

If you promise to be somewhere, make sure you are there on time. If you promise to call somebody back, do so on time. Don't commit what you cannot do. One minute means 60 seconds everywhere, no more. Make a habit of under-committing rather than over-committing.
