Defining the Truthful


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam Abu ‘Abdullah al-Harits ibn Asad al-‘Anazi al-Muhasibi (q.s.) said, “The truthful is he who would not be concerned if the welfare of his heart demanded that all his fame among men should vanish.  He does not want even one jot of his good works to be known by men, nor does he care if men were to know his wrongdoings.  Any desire to be held in the good opinion of men is not the characteristic of the truthful.”
