Honesty is the Islamic Policy

The video is just a comedic approach to a very serious topic: Dealing in business with honesty. Islam gives a high importance to honesty when it comes to any actions and specifically when dealing with others in financial matters. It is so common nowadays with deceiving marketing tactics and the use of fine print to conceal details instead of being as straight as possible with a product or offering.

It was narrated that Hakim bin Hizam said: “The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: ‘The two parties to a transaction have the choice so long as they have not separated. If that are honest and open, their transaction will be blessed, but if they tell lies and conceal anything, the blessing of their transaction will be lost.” – The Book of Financial Transactions Vol 5, Book 44, Hadith 4462.

There are a lot of easy shortcut ways to make more money and try to sell your product, but always remember that dishonesty will always come back and bite you especially with the world of social media, the word gets around so fast. And think about your akhirah (Hereafter) as well before deceiving someone about your product.

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “The signs of a hypocrite are three: Whenever he speaks he tells a lie; whenever he is entrusted he proves dishonest; whenever he promises he breaks his promise.”

To be successful, break through the clutter of deceptive advertising and hiding details about your product or services. Be honest, straight up and see how you reap the benefits in this world and the Hereafter.
