Allah, The Exalted, Says:

"O you who believe! Fulfill (your) obligations". (Quran: 5:1)

"And fulfill (every) covenant. Verily! The covenant will be questioned about". (Quran: 17:34)

Abdullah bin Amr Al-As (R.A), Said: The messenger of Allah (S.A.W) Said, "whoever possesses these four characteristics is a sheer hypocrite; and anyone who possesses one of them possesses a characteristic of hypocrisy until he gives it up.

These are:

1. When he is entrusted with something, he proves dishonest;

2. When he speaks, he tells a lie;

3. When he makes a covenant, he proves treacherous;

4. And when he quarrels, he behaves in a very imprudent, evil, insulting manner. "

[Bukhari and Muslim]


The traits mentioned in this Hadith are peculiar to hypocrites and EVERY Muslim is required to abstain from them. Excellence of character is riveted with Faith. The nobility of character is invariably reflected in Faith, and when there is no Faith there will be little excellence of character.
