Always Speak The Truth
Truth can be tested at many times but it cannot be defeated, truth is fabricated and motivated by devil and he provokes people to such lies and false concept and to implement such false principles in life. It is better to speak truth all through our life and make it a habit of living a truthful life because Allah also loves truth and honesty. Being truthful in life our life would be good, happy and prosperous and would turn out to be a successful in life. Life if a combination of joy and sorrow and everyone has to work for earning our livelihood. But this life would be meaningless if does not have principles of truthfulness and honesty. Remember false or lies may have attraction and charms to get time being satisfaction. But its results would we be devastating to destroy ages to come, truth never fears. A person when have fears of Allah would always speak truth and those who do not have fear of Allah would take help of lies and false. Our Emaan should be firm and be truthful in life. Truth may have an impact on situation but it would be normal as time goes on. Truth has many benefits and advantages. The person who is speaking truth needs no need of any clarification or any explanations. His work and his actions speak for him. Sometimes people are remembered by his nature. Truthful life is always happy and progressive.
