Morals and Ethics (Akhlaq)

Keeping Promises (for 4 to 7 years old kids)

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Keeping Promises (for 4 to 7 years old kids)



One of the most important characteristic of a good Muslim is to keep the promises.

Keeping Promises


When we make a promise, we should always try to make sure we fulfil that promise. Breaking a promise is like lying; because we said we would do something but we don’t do it. Allāh [SWT] does not like those who lie or break their promises.


Whenever we make a promise, we should always say “Insha Allāh” which means we ask Allāh [SWT]  to help us to do that and keep our promise.


If we make a promise to a friend, or to anybody, and cannot keep our promise, we should apologise to the person and explain why we could not keep our promise. 

For example: I promised my friend I would go to their house for a Majlis they were keeping. I forgot about the Majlis and did not go, or I ended up going out with my family and could not make it. I should not lie, instead I should apologise and try to make it up to my friend.

If we know we cannot keep a promise from before, we should not pretend to promise. We should be truthful and say from before that we cannot do what is being asked of us. This is better than having to break the promise later.

Fulfilling a promise is wājib (wājib means we must do it), no matter how big or small the promise is or whether the person you made a promise with is Muslim or Non-Muslim. Always think before you make a promise!
