DAY 5: BE HONEST
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَكُونُوا مَعَ الصَّادِقِينَ
“O you who believe! Fear Allah, and be with those who are true (in word and deeds).”
[Al Qur’an 9:119]
We all know the basics about lying and honesty. However, many don’t ponder over how this should be applied when dealing with our emotions and feelings. There are times when we are uneasy or have questions when making a decision, what we commonly call the “intuition.” This sort of confusion shouldn’t be further analyzed, and one should refrain from it. On the other hand, if we find that the answer brings certainty and peace, then that decision could be considered well. This is something we don’t think much about, and choose to engage in whatever our hearts aren’t happy with. Dishonesty, with others and ourselves, should be avoided for the peace of our minds.
May Allah سبحانه و تعالى guide us all to righteousness. اللهم آمين.
