Story of a man who wanted to change by Prophet’s advice

Once a man came to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and said, “O Messenger of Allah (SWT), I have many bad habits. Which one of them should I give up first?” Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said, “Give up telling lies first and always speak the truth.” The man promised to do so and went home.

At night the man was about to go out to steal. Before setting out, he thought for a moment about the promise he made with Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). “If tomorrow Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) asks me where have I been, what shall I say? Shall I say that I went out stealing? No, I cannot say that. But nor can I lie. If I tell the truth, everyone will start hating me and call me a thief. I would be punished for stealing.”

So the man decided not to steal that night, and gave up this bad habit of stealing.

Next day, he felt like drinking alcohol, when he was about to do so, he said to himself, “What shall I say to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) if he asks me what did I do during the day? I cannot tell a lie, and if I speak the truth people will hate me, because a Muslim is not allowed to drink alcohol.” And so he gave up the idea of drinking alcohol.

In this way, whenever the man thought of doing something bad, he remembered his promise to tell the truth at all times. One by one, he gave up all his bad habits and became a good Muslim, a better human-being.

Prophet Muhammad (SAW) taught the mankind justice, honesty, truth and love.And his personality was a model of these great virtues.

He respected all religions and all people and so all should respect him.
