In Holy Qur'an, Sunnah and Bible you will find many texts clearly indicate that it is obligatory to fulfill promises and covenants, and it is haraam to break them.
Almighty Allah says in Holy Qur'an: “O you who believe! Why do you say that which you do not do? It is most hateful to Allah that you should say that which you do not do.” (Surah as-Saff 61:2-3)
And in Bible: “If a man vows a vow to the Lord, or swears an oath to bind himself by a pledge, he shall not break his word. He shall do according to all that proceeds out of his mouth.” Numbers 30:2 ESV
Thus, if you are like most people; you make commitments to others all the time; the questions are: do you keep your promises? And, how many you break?
It is not easy to break hearts. So, don’t let someone down. Don’t say something that you cannot hold to. Don’t harm your self-esteem or others' esteem. Stick to your words and fulfil your vows.
We have to be true. Allah commands us to be people of our word and gives us the ultimate example of someone who does it: Himself! He does not leave us without an example, so this should persuade us as we need to be people who imitate and emulate His Almighty and keep our promises to others. Again, we must accomplish our own words.
