Hadith Explanation

Speak Up

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: "Let not respect for men prevent any of you from speaking the truth when he knows it." [Sahih Muslim]

Sometimes people are silent because they are afraid of offending somebody, when they should be speaking up with the truth. Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) has more right that He should not be offended. When the truth is covered up it is distasteful to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). Truth leads to Jannah and falsehood and lying lead to the Fire of Hell [Sahih Muslim]. Therefore, we should be careful to always side with the truth and speak it when necessary.

Nothing is as important as your character. Know when to keep silent and when to speak up. Know truth, understand it, believe in it, and practice it. In the end, nothing survives but the truth.
