LYING AND APRIL FOOLS DAY


Beliefs & Practices

Allah says in the Qur’aan: “Truly, Allah guides not him who is a liar, and a disbeliever.” (Suratuz-Zumar 39:3)

Ibn Mas’ud (radhiallahu anhu) narrated from the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam): “Truthfulness leads to righteousness and righteousness leads to Paradise. A man keeps on telling the truth until he is written with Allah as Siddiq (a truthful person). Kadhib (lying) leads to wickedness and wickedness leads to hell-fire. A man keeps on telling lies until he is written with Allah as a liar.”
