          The Arabs are eloquent people. They valued  words, speech and eloquence very highly. Also it is human nature to get affected by words. Hearts are lost and won by words. So the virtues and maladies of the tongue are very significant and important. Islam has acknowledged the psychological effect of words in an early stage. Hence, Islam encourages and fosters the virtues of the tongue. So we find Islam encouraging its followers to stick to good speech. On many occasions and in many places does the Holy Quran  highlight truthfulness. He asks Muslims to tell the truth  all the time. A good Muslim always tells the truth, and the vice versa. Keeping one’s promise is one of the major virtues Islan and the Holy Quran celebrate a lot. Some prophets were well mentioned only because they kept their promise.Truthfulness and keeping one’s promise create a state of trust, peace and stability in the society. They bring Muslims closer to each other. On the contrary, telling lies is highly criticized by Allah, Islam and the Holy Quran. Similarly, breaking one’s promise is one of the worst qualities criticized by Islam. Rumours and lies are liable to destroy a whole society. It can create a state of hatred and grudge in the society.  They are capable of making the society members apart. They weaken the society and make it easily defeatable.

If Allah makes you stand up you will never fall, and if he lets you fall and leaves you to yourself, you will always fall.
