Hadith Explanation

Honest Trader is Companion of Prophets

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “A truthful and honest trader will be a companion of the prophets, the righteous and the martyrs on the Day of Judgement.” [Tirmidhi]

Be honest and trustworthy in your business dealings. Do not turn your lawful earnings into unlawful income by supplying defective goods, by indulging in profiteering, or by lying.

The reward for honesty in business transactions is fantastic. Through this honesty you can gain the companionship of the best people who walked the surface of the earth.

We are willing to go to such great lengths to be able to hang out with the influential. Honesty in business dealings is a very small price to pay in return for which we may be blessed with the companionship that all of mankind will be dieing to have on the Day of Judgement.

You will in any case make only as much money as is written in your Rizq. Don’t let the Day of Judgement become “Yaum al-Hasara – The Day of Regret” for you. Control yourself now, so that you don’t end up wishing on that greatest of days that you had done better in the world.
