Never break your promise to people

SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – Imam Ali’s (AS) address to Malik Ashtar, the governor of the Egypt: Do not count your services to people as special and great work and never make a promise that you can not fulfill.  To consider your work as special, will turn off the light of the truth and failing to fulfill the promises to people will cause God’s and peoples’ anger, as Allah (SWT) said: It is enmity towards God if you promise but do not fulfill that promise [1].
