“For the first time, when
the prophet PBUH stood on the mountain of Safa to invite people towards
monotheism and Tawheed, they listened to him due to their trust in his
veracity. The prophet PBUH did not lie even once in his entire life. If we are

donate and tell the truth, they are honest and truthful in their faith. As
veracity has positive fruits, in the same way, lie has negative fruits.

accusation and useless talks. Even do not tell lie to make others laugh.”
President of Darululoom
Zahedan expressed his regret over the spread of lies among traders and in
markets. He said: “Telling lies in businesses and traders kill the blessing.
