Hadith of The Day: Lying Disease of The Heart

The worst form of lying is to do so upon Allah and His Messenger which is to falsely attribute things to them. Allah Almighty Says in the Quran: "And if he [i.e., Muhammad] had made up about Us some [false] sayings, We would have seized by the right hand; then We would have cut from him the aorta " [Quran 69:44-46]

And: "…And do not conceal testimony, for whoever conceals it – his heart is indeed sinful…." [Quran 2:283]


And: "And do not mix the truth with falsehood or conceal the truth while you know [it]." [Quran 2:42]


Hypocrites are liars too, because they lie to themselves. Allah Says about them (what means): "In their hearts is disease, so Allah has increased their disease; and for them is a painful punishment because they [habitually] used to lie." [Quran 2:10] Allah also addressed His Messenger Muhammad Saying (what means): "…Allah knows that you are His Messenger, and Allah testifies that the hypocrites are liars." [Quran 63: 1]


The Quran on Liars


Allah Says: "…Indeed Allah does not guide one who is a transgressor and a liar." [Quran 40:28]


And: "…Indeed, Allah does not guide he who is a liar and [confirmed] disbeliever." [Quran 39:3]


Almighty Allah also Says: "…The curse of Allah be upon him if he should be among the liars." [Quran 24:7]


The Messenger on Lying and Liars


Prophet Muhammad said:

“Indeed, truth leads to virtue and virtue leads to Paradise, and a truthful person continues to speak the truth until he becomes the most truthful person. Lies lead to evil and evil leads to Hell, and a liar continues to lie until he is listed as a high ranking liar before Allah." [Al-Bukhari]

Also, Yoosuf Ibn 'Abdullaah, may Allah be pleased with him, said that he asked Prophet Muhammad: "O Messenger of Allah! What do you think is the most dreadful thing for me?" Yoosuf, may Allah be pleased with him, continued: "The Messenger caught hold of his tongue and said: "This." [At-Tirmithi]

Furthermore, Bahz Ibn Hakeem related that the Messenger said: "Destruction is for the man who tells lies for the amusement of other people. Destruction is for him." [At-Tirmithi]

Sufyaan Ibn Usayd, may Allah be pleased with him, also reported that the Messenger said: "The biggest breach of trust is that you tell a thing to your brother who believes it to be true, whereas you have lied to him." [Abu Daawood].
