Hadith Explanation

List We Are On

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Adopt truth, for truth shows the path of righteousness, and righteousness shows the path to Paradise. A man speaks the truth regularly and adopts truthful ways till he is recorded as a truthful person before Allah. And keep away from falsehood, for falsehood leads to wickedness, and wickedness throws in Hell. A person tells lies regularly and attaches himself to falsehood till he is recorded as a liar before Allah.” [Fathul Bari]

Each person ends up on one of two lists with Allah (subhana wa ta’ala): that of “Truthful People” or that of “Liars.”

If a person feels that lying is not an option for him, he automatically stays away from many bad things out of the realization that if he is caught he will have to face a great deal of embarrassment in admitting to those deeds.

The person who realizes that on the Day of Judgement he will not have an option to lie, and that even his own body will speak out against him and admit to the things he used to do, will restrain himself from doing as he pleases.

Such a person will adopt good conduct and eventually be admitted to Jannah because of it. His ultimate success of admittance to Jannah will have come out of adopting truth as his policy.

On the other hand, he who feels no compunction in lying behaves as he pleases, and will have to pay the heaviest penalty for it on the Day of Judgement.
