              After dealing with the maladies of the tongue, Islam endeavours to deal with the behavioral maladies. If truthfulness is a verbal virtue, Islam advocates, honesty as a practical virtue Islam strongly supports and promots. Honesty means truthfulness in transactions and fair play. Honesty means to use legitimate  ways to reach lawful ends. It is not to use crooked ways to reach illegitimate ends. Honesty is to observe the others’ rights and to preserve their possessions. It is to avoid the criminal ways to usurp others’ property. A Muslim should avoid the crimes of stealing, robbery, fraud and bribry. Robbery is highly condemned in Islam. A Muslim is banned to steal things which don’t belong to them. The punishment for such a crime is so severe that a thief’s hand is to be cut off their body. Modern legislations have replaced this punishment with imprisonment.  This has a practical reason as the witnesses and the nature of the modern circumstances have changed a lot. In both cases, Islam appears to be very keen on preserving people’s possessions. Forging and bribery are also two fiscal crimes which happen due to the lack of honesty. So Islam cures a malady before it takes place, by supporting and promoting the virtue of honesty.

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.
