The beauty of man lies in his character. The word honesty is an alternative for choosing not to lie, deceive, steal and cheat. Honesty is somehow linked with inner peace and satisfaction. Honesty is associated with integrity which means to do what is right without focusing on the circumstances. Honesty helps you to clean up your soul and relationships. Allah loves honesty, when you are honest; you will be rewarded by Allah and end up in heaven. Be honest in your job and give full amount of work for your pay. Honesty is the first chapter of the book wisdom.
It was Thursday, a Saudi taxi driver found a jewelry box on his way back to Makah of his passengers to whom he dropped to the airport. The passengers were departing to Kuwait. He intended to return the valuable jewelry to the owner and rushed towards the hotel situated in Makah from where he picked up those passengers. He was seeking for their contact number and rushed into the hotel, asked the receptionist about the Kuwaiti family who made check out from the hotel. After letting receptionist the whole scenario, the receptionist was surprised and lost his anger. On driver’s further request, the receptionist yelled at him as he was pissed off on passengers for not taking hotel’s car for going to the airport. The driver was very upset as he was an honest man and not wanting to keep that jewelry box because it is a sinful act. He was frustrated because the receptionist was the only person who could help him. No legacy is as rich as honesty.
Driver was very determined; he wasn’t the kind of man who gives up easily. So he posted an Ad on social media because it was the only thing which could lead him to the Kuwaiti passengers. He wrote in his Ad about all the circumstances and expecting media to help him in discovering passenger’s exact place but all in vain. He recalled that he had a contact number of a Kuwaiti man whom he dropped from Jeddah airport to Makah about a year ago. He let Abu Ahmed know that a jewelry box is in his custody. Abu Ahmed was able to find the passenger’s location and contact number and gave it to the driver. The Kuwaiti man “Abdul Aziz” afterwards praised and showed gratitude on a call and gave him so many prayers. It was the token of appreciation.
The driver didn’t want to show off and what he did was for Allah’s sake. He didn’t want his picture to be taken neither he wanted to appear in a newspaper and media. He wanted to avoid pretentious claims. We should always speak the truth because we will not have to remember what we said last time.
Honesty is the cornerstone of all success without which confidence ability to perform shall cease to exist. Honesty is very important in your career, once your boss knows you are trusted, chances of responsibilities get double which leads to promotion.
