If you want to be relaxed in this world, you can be with truthful people only, those whose personality and actions match each other. “Ya ayyuha llathina amanu ittaqu Allaha wakunu m’a s-sadiqin.” (9:119) The order of Allah is to fear Allah and to be with truthful people. Both are the good commands of Allah. They are for your benefit. Allah is not in need of anyone. He won’t receive any benefit. Even if all your actions are good, they have neither benefit nor harm for Allah. Both their harm and benefit is for you.
Therefore, everybody knows in this life that going with a liar is not liked by anyone. Just like disliking a liar, you should also be a truthful one so that people can be friends with you. Be a desired person. There is no need to lie for the sake of someone. Our Prophetﷺ says when a person starts telling lies, slowly slowly he is written as a liar in the presence of Allah. And a true person is written as a truthful one in the presence of Allah by telling the truth. Because when a man starts lying, he tells another lie to support his previous lie. Going like this until his whole his life is built upon lies. He will have wasted it. He won’t be a beneficent man. And its harm will be more for himself.
The truthful are the Prophets. Sahabas (companions) are truthful, Awliya are truthful, believers are truthful. Be with them. No need to go after those who promise you something everyday and don’t keep their promises. We must follow the way of Allah, the way shown by Allah. This is the beautiful way to be in comfort in this life and to be saved in akhirah, the real life, haqq-ul hayat, the life of akhirah. Holy Quran is the book of all mankind, all universe. “Wa la ratbin wa la yabisin illa fi kitabin mubeen.”(6:59) Everything is there. There are short things but they show the way too. They are beautiful things. They keep light in people’s lives. Some people are blind, they don’t see. That is different. But this is enough for people even though it’s short.
Today we are saying, [it is an] order of Allah, holy verse: “Ya ayyuha lladhina amanu ittaqu Allaha wa kunu m’a s-sadiqin” (9:119) Allah ordering us to be afraid from Allah. How to [be] afraid? To not do wrong things, to see He is seeing us, what we are doing. He is, everything He knowing, nothing can hide. Second thing – Be with trustful people who are saying truth, people. Don’t be with liars. And this is for our, human being’s benefit. Allah [is] showing us these good ways because for Allah [there is] no benefit from what we doing. We done, we do, we will do – No benefit at all for Allah. No harm also for Him. He is Creator. Everything for you, for people, for human beings. Allah showing good way and to be with good people, not liar people. It is even for normal people, it is good.
So, don’t be liar! Because, hadith as-Sharif, Prophet ﷺ saying: There are people, they are speaking, lying ones. After [that] lying again and they it is like habit for them and they will be written in Divine Presence as liars. And other who say truth, he saying truth every time saying truth. Allah write in Divine Presence they are true man, good man. Because when you saying truth, [it is] true – no need to put another truth near it; it is OK. But when somebody lying and saying lie he must put another one near it. Because it is weak and it is not enough, he will put another, another, another until whole life he will be in, built on lies.
This is you must be away from these people who are promising and not doing, and they are lying [their] whole life. You must be away from these people. Allah ordered to be with true-saying people. And it is easy for people to live with good people, not easy to live with not trustful (trustworthy) people. It’s for our benefit.
And the Qur’an Azimu sh-sha’an, everything in this life [is] written on it, inside it. Inside [the] Qur’an, Holy Qur’an. And Allah give us way, showing us [the] way how to be happy here and hereafter. Even small orders but it is only for our benefit. Allah, as we said, all human beings if they are right nothing good for Him, no benefit for Him or even all they are wrong way, also no harm for Allah. Only for us and He is Creator and He is showing us how to be with whom we must be and who we must follow. Who … Be with good people, trustful people. Don’t be with other people and you [will] be happy and here and hereafter also. And we must learn to say [the] true – to not learn at all to say a lie. To not be habit for you to be [a] liar. It is not good to writing in Divine Presence ‘This man liar!’ It is shame for these people!
Allah keep us in the right way, and write us in good people, trustful people in Divine Presence.
