The Prophet's Fulfilling Promises

The Apostle of God said: 'Whoever believes in God and the Last Day should fulfil his promises.' 282

He also said: 'He who keeps not his promise has no faith.' 283 Im"m Ja!far al-Sadiq relates: 'The Apostle of God made an appointment to meet a man at al-£akhrah and said to him: 'I will wait for you here until you come.' The sun's heat became severe and his companions said to him: 'O Apostle of God, if only you were to move into the shade.' He said: 'I promised [to meet] him here, and if he does not come then it will be against him on the Day of Gathering.' 284

It is narrated that Ibn Ab: al-H{ams"' al-!wmir: said: 'It was before the advent of the mission of the Apostle of God when I made an appointment with him to meet at certain place but I forgot about it for two days. On the third day I went to the place and I found him there, and the Apostle of God said:

'Young man you have caused me hardship for I have been here for three days waiting for you.' 285
