“To fulfill the contracts which ye have made.”

And the, Traditions say:

"He who does not fulfill promises made by him has no share in the faith."

"Not to fulfill one's promises is a special sign of a hypocrite."

May Allah (Subhaanahu Wata'aalaa) Protect us from bad deeds.


Closely allied to truthfulness is the quality of trustworthiness. It is important branch of it.

Islam has laid a special emphasis on it also. Here is what the Quran says :

Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa) doth command you to render back you Trusts to those to whom they are due.

On two occasions in Holy Quran, it has been mentioned, in the qualities of true believers; and the people who safeguard the trusts and their promises (i.e. pay back the trusts and fulfill the promises). (Surah Moominun & Surah Ma'aarij)

It is reported that Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihe Wasallam) often used to say in his Sermons;

"O People! In whom there is no trustworthiness, in him there is, so to speak, no faith."

In one Tradition Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihe Wasallam) says:

“Look not alone at anyone’s prayers and fasts to decide about his spiritual excellence (that is, do not be impressed by anyone’s spirituality simply because you find him devout in his prayers and fasts). You should also see that he is truthful when he speaks, restores honestly what he has received in trust to whom it is due, and remains righteous in times of adversity and suffering.”

My dear Muslims! If we want to be a true believer in the sight of Allah (Subhaanahu Wata'aalaa), too, and want to be claimant of His blessings, it is necessary to adopt trustworthiness and honesty in every case and to make the fulfillment of promises the principle of life.

Remember, one amongst us, who does not have these qualities he is not a true believer and complete Muslim in front of Allah (Subhaanahu Wata'aalaa) and His Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihe Wasallam).


Justice is an integral part of Islamic ethics. We must practice it in all spheres of life. The Quran states:

Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa) commands justice and doing of good.

In Islam we are commanded to be just and fair not only towards our own people or coreligionists but also towards others even if they be the enemies of our life, property or faith. It is candidly stated in the Quran that :

And let not the hatred of others to you make you swerve to wrong and depart from justice. Be just: that is next to piety.

The above verse enjoins justice to those also, individuals as well as communities, who may be harboring ill-will against us. Otherwise, we are sure to incur the displeasure of Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa) and
