Second piece of merchandise: Dishonesty

Satan that his second piece of merchandise was dishonesty and that he sells it to traders (business men) and as we all know, traders and business men are often dishonest. Remember! Dishonesty is also a sign of hypocrisy. Sahih Bukhari mentions a report on the authority of Sayyiduna Abdullah bin Umar that The Holy Prophet said, 'There are four signs of a hypocrite and if someone possess one of them he has one sign of hypocrisy (until he abandons it), (1) Betrayal when trusted with something (amaanat), (2) Lying whilst speaking, (3) Breaking promises, (4) Swearing when involved in an argument'. (Sahih Bukhari, V1, P17, Hadith 34, Dar-ul-Fikr)

The vast meaning of amaanat

My Dear Islamic Brothers! The word amaanat refers to a variety of things. Imam Qurtubi says, 'Amaanat is to fulfil the entire commands and worships of Islam'. Hujja-tul-Islam Sayyiduna Imam Muhammad Ghazali says, 'The private parts are an amaanat, the ears are an amaanat, the tongue is an amaanat, the stomach is an amaanat, the hands and feet are an amaanat, he who has no amaanat has no faith'. So anyone who uses his limbs in disobedience has used them for wrongfully. (Mukashifa-tul-Quloob, P43, Dar-ul-Kutubul Ilmiya Beirut) Hazrat'e Sayyiduna Abdullah bin Amri wabnul aas says that before Allah created the body parts of a person, the private parts were made and whilst addressing the person said, 'I am leaving an amaanat with you. Don't be neglectful in fulfilling its rights. Ears are amaanat, eyes are amaanat, private parts are amaanat, stomach is an amaanat and the tongue is an amaanat.' (Navaad-rul-Usool fi Ahadith-ur-Rasool, V3, P155) Hazrat'e Sayyiduna Fakhr-ud-Din Raazi says, 'Know that the chapter of amaanat is very big. The amaanat of the tongue is that the person saves it from lying, backbiting, slandering, kufr, bidat and wrongful acts. The amaanat of the eyes is that they are not used to look at Haraam and the amaanat of the ears is that they are not used to listen to Haraam. Simililarly, a person needs to show that he is trustworthy when it comes to other body parts. (Tafseer-e-Kabeer, V4, P109)
