This is not inclusive but has to be said.
If you are a Muslim this is for you.
Muslim: One who submits to the will of the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth. A servant of God ( Allah).
So listen up beloved.
A Muslim can be a coward.
Absolutely, a Muslim can not be a liar.
Always remember that.
Guard your tongue and private parts.
Be careful what you say to people.
When people are caught in lies, it affects their reputation.
Individuals will not trust that person who lied. Their credibility is shot.
Allah and His Beloved Prophet Peace and Blessings be upon him; says speak the truth even if it be against yourself.
Not many want or think to do that when in a situation.
They’re so concerned about getting out of trouble, or saying things the other person WANTS to hear.
Withholding the truth is not being truthful.
They are not concerned about if you tell the truth it frees up everything. Withholding information can mess up things.
If you release the truth when asked to it helps situations.
Volunteering information is not necessary at times.
Because covering faults is a practice.
You need to learn the wisdom in that practice without becoming a problem or labeled as a snitch.
You see holding something in that you should tell can make you sick or uneasy.
Have you ever told something and you felt like weight was lifted off of you.
That’s what truth does to you.
Free you up.
When you lie, it puts heavy pressure on your heart and mind. One lie after another.
It puts a black spot on your heart.
Then every time you lie it gets bigger. Until your whole heart is covered and you are far off the path and out of the fold of Islam.
Having a hard heart.
Not a good place to be.
Tell the truth.
Your life will be much better telling the truth.
Not being poetic but being real. Your soul needs it.
Have a blessed rest of your day!
