Qur’an And Hadith About Fulfilling Promises

Topic Progress:

Qur’an

Allah has declared:

“…Fulfill (every) promise. Indeed promises will be questioned about (on the Day of Judgement).”

“O you who believe! Why do you say that which you do not do? Most hateful it is with Allah that you say that which you do not do.”

Hadith

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad [s] said:

“Four are the qualities which, when found in a person, make him an open hypocrite, and one who possesses one of them, possesses one characteristic of hypocrisy until he abandons it. These are: When he is entrusted with something, he betrays trust; when he speaks, he lies; when he promises, he acts treacherously; and when he argues, he behaves in a very imprudent, insulting manner.”

“Not to fulfill ones promises is a distinctive sign of hypocrisy.”
