Telling the truth in Trade

Trading is a mundane activity, but if it is done with a view to obtain lawful and honest living, and to fulfil the lawful needs of oneself and one's family, trading becomes a source of reward and merit, provided one avoids unlawful activities. Honesty and truth in trading has been much lauded in Hadith. Abu Said Khidri has quoted the following Prophetic tradition: -

"A trader who is truthful and honest shall be in company of Prophets, Siddiqun and Shuhada." (Tirmidhi)
