Honesty The Heart Learning

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

This is part of Heart Learning Series.

Honesty means moral uprightness. It is the quality, condition, or characteristic of being fair, truthful, and morally upright. It is also mean truthfulness, candour, or sincerity.

Allah commands us to be honest in the Qur’an in Surah Taubah, Surah 9 Verse 119, "O! You who believe! Fear Allah and be with those (in the company of) who are true (in word and action)"

Narrated Hudhaifa: Allah's Apostle said to us, "honesty descended from the Heavens and settled in the roots of the hearts of men (faithful believers), and then the Quran was revealed and the people read the Quran, (and learnt it from it) and also learnt it from the Sunna." Both Quran and Sunna strengthened their (the faithful believers') honesty. (See Hadith No. 208) (Book #92, Hadith #381)

We are command to be honest when we are telling jokes. Watch Joking in Islam below.
