Being Truthful with Allāh

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

If you’re truthful with your Mawlá [supporter and manager of affairs] in your relationship with Him, first of all, and then your relationship with creation, no words of abuse from someone casting abuse harm you, and no words of praise from someone throwing praise benefit you.

Being truthful with Allāh is a high level.

A person goes up [in levels] to that as his holding on to being truthful [goes up] in [both] speech and deed. Consider the ḥadīth: “A man continues to be truthful and keeps looking to be truthful [again and again] until he’s recorded with Allāh as an ever-truthful one.”¹
