Honesty and trustworthiness

Hadith & Seerah, The Noble Traits of His Character, The Ways of the Prophet (SAWS) / Saturday, August 16th, 2008

When the Prophet began to preach the true religion, the whole community became his enemy and spared no pains to harass and persecute him, yet there was not a single pagan who doubted his honesty and trustworthiness. On the contrary, people used to bring and leave their money in his trust, they considered none in Makkah more honest and trust worthy than him. One purpose of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) in leaving Hadrat Ali behind on the occasion of his migration (to Madina) was indeed that he should return to every one their deposits before coming over to Madina. (Madarij -Un- Nabuwah)
