669 How we can remove the lie from our self. How can we be good Muslims?
It is narrated in a Hadith that: Once a Bedouin came to RasoolAllah (S.A.W) and said “Ya RasoolAllah (S.A.W); I committed many wrongs, I lie, I cheat, I deceit, I drink, and commit zina (adultery). I want to change, but please tell me to leave only one of these things”. The Holy Prophet (S.A.W) said to him, to refrain from lying. He promised that he would not lie from this point onwards.

The man went away and as he was about to drink he thought to himself , I will have to reappear before Prophet (S.A.W) again and will be questioned about drinking. As I have promised not to lie I will have to share this sin in front of the gathering. With this thought he did not drink, and with the same feeling of humiliation when telling the truth about the Sins he had done, he one by one left all of his Sins.

The teaching deduced from this Hadith is that we have to remember one day we will have to appear before Allah (S.W.T) and his Rasool (S.A.W). How will we face them if we be disobedient and are lying. One lie leads to another, resulting in a false impression that creates a mountain of Sins.
