Blessing and Peace be upon HimIn the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most MercifulAll praise and thanks to the Lord of Al’Amin, may Allah’s peace and pray be upon the best Messenger and his family and his followers until the Day of Judgment.Allah praised all his Prophets by saying, he – the Exalted – said: “And mention in the Book (the Qur'an) Isma'il (Ishmael). Verily he was true to what he promised, and he was a Messenger, (and) a Prophet.” He also said: “And mention in the Book (the Qur'an) Idris (Enoch). Verily he was a man of truth, (and) a Prophet.” On the top of whom he was since his childhood, Prophet Muhammad (blessing and peace be upon him), he never lied - so he was named – the trustful honest person. One day, he climbed up the mount of Alsafa and said: “O Bani Abd Al-Mutalib, O Bani Fihr, O Bani Ka’b, if I tell you that there are horses at the top of the mountain and they are about to attack you, you will trust me.” They said: “Yes, we know that you always tell the truth.”In the dialogue between Hercules and Abu  Sufian.The former asked the latter: “Did you accuse him of lying before he claimed this?”Abu Sufian said: “No, he never told us a lie.”Hercules said: “I know that he never lies to people, and then how he could commit            lies to Allah?”My brother, Allah`s Messenger, was an example of telling the truth, he surnamed the trustful honest person by Quraish before his mission, they entrusted their valuable "luggage" with him, they confide in him their secrets, after his mission and although his kinship mistreated him, but the Prophet still treated them in a friendly manner. This is cleared by his rendering back trusts to people who made themselves the bitter enemy to him.  Al –Nadir Bin Al-Harith, who used to insult the Prophet (blessing and peace be upon him), bore witness to the truthfulness of Allah`s Messenger, that he gave a speech to Quraish chieftains and said: “O Quraish,You are being afflicted with something the likes of which you have never experienced. As a young man, Muhammad was the most intelligent, truthful and trustworthy among you. But when you noticed grey hairs at his temples and he conveyed to you what he conveyed, you called him a magician. No, by Allah, he is not a magician. And you called him a soothsayer. No, by Allah, he is not a soothsayer. And you called him a poet. No, by Allah, he is not a poet. And you said he was mad... O company of Quraish! Look into this matter of yours, for by Allah, you have been afflicted with something tremendous." Look, it is an important matter which has arisen. Allah`s testimony is the greatest one, since he said: "And he (Muhammad) who has brought the truth (this Qur’an and Islamic Monotheism) and (those who) believed therein (i.e. the true believers of Islamic Monotheism), those are Al-Muttaqun (the pious)". Therefore, the one who came with the truth is Prophet Muhammad (blessing and peace be upon him) and what attested to his truth is the Holy Qur’an. In his commentary on this verse, Ibn ‘Ashur said: “The one who came with the truth is Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah (blessing and peace be upon him) and the truth is the Qur’an.”Allah`s Messenger encouragement to tell the truth: The Messenger of Allah (blessing and peace be upon him) encourages Muslims to commit the truth in their deeds and actions. He said: "Truthfulness leads to righteousness, and righteousness leads to Paradise. And a man keeps on telling the truth until he becomes a truthful person. Falsehood leads to Al-Fajr (i.e. wickedness, evil-doing), and Al-Fajr (wickedness) leads to the (hell) fire, and a man may keep on telling lies till he is written before Allah, a liar."Rather the Messenger of Allah (blessing and peace be upon him) also directs Muslims by saying: “Guarantee for me six things and I will guarantee Paradise for you: tell the truth when you speak, fulfill your promises, be faithful when you are trusted, safeguard your private parts, lower your gaze, and withhold your hands (from harming others).”And among the Prophet`s great educational manner is the impact that he had left on  Muslims and their grandchildren to love the truth, the biggest example of that is what  Abu Al-Hawraa Al-Sa’di reported, he said I said to Al-Hassan Ibn ‘Ali: "What did you remember from the Prophet`s speech? He said: "I remember that: Leave that which will cause you doubt for that which will not cause you doubt. For in truthfulness lies tranquility, and in lying lies doubt."The Prophet`s truth in jest: The Prophet (blessing and peace be upon him) was truthful in all his deeds and in all his actions even in the time of joke and fun, Anas narrated: "The Prophet said: ‘I would give you a camel’s child’. The man said: ‘O Messenger of Allah. What will I do with a camel’s child?’ The Prophet smiled and said: ‘Is there any camel who is not the progeny of a camel?’”The Prophet `s truth in war:The Prophet (blessing and peace be upon him) was also truthful in war that he permitted lying to the enemies in order to get rid of their evil and their harm, we look at his situation before the Battle of Badr, Quraish went out to attack Muslims.Carlyle bears witness to the Messenger `s truthLike this, his life was filled with truth in every matter and this make Carlyle to say: "A false man founded a religion, why a false man cannot build a brick house! If he does not know and follow truly the properties of mortar, burnt clay and what else is working in, it is no house that he makes, but a rubbish heap. It will not stand for twelve centuries, to lodge a hundred and eighty millions; it will fall straightway. A man must conform himself to nature’s laws, be verily in communion with nature and the truth of things, or nature will not answer him. What those disbelievers say is incorrect even if they decorate it to make it real. The worst is when people are deceived by such lies.   Yes, the right is what the enemies said "bore witness"Yes, the result of this truthful model in his childhood, youth and in his old age, the truthful one in his joking, war, and in his life never lies as he says about himself in Abu Huriera`s hadith they said: "O Allah`s Messenger, you are kidding us.” He said: "Verily, I say the truth is a great generation.” Allah said: "Among the believers are men who have been true to their covenant with Allah [i.e. they have gone out for Jihad (holy fighting), and showed not their backs to the disbelievers]; some of them have fulfilled their obligations (i.e. have been martyred); and some of them are still waiting, but they have never changed [i.e. they never proved treacherous to their covenant which they concluded with Allah] in the least."My brothers - Allah has commanded us to follow the truthful people that he said: "O you who believe! Be afraid of Allah, and be with those who are true (in words and deeds).”Peace upon the best truthful person Muhammad and his family and his companions to the Day of Religion.
