‘Abd-Allah ibn Mas’ood (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

“The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

‘You must be truthful, for truthfulness leads to righteousness and righteousness leads to Paradise. A man will keep speaking the truth and striving to speak the truth until he will be recorded with Allah as a siddeeq (speaker of the truth).

Beware of telling lies, for lying leads to immorality and immorality leads to Hellfire. A man will keep telling lies and striving to tell lies until he is recorded with Allah as a liar.”

[Reported by Muslim, 4721]

“O you who believe! Be afraid of Allah, and be with those who are true (in word and deeds).”

[The Qur’an 9:119]

“It means: be truthful and adhere to truthfulness, and you will be among its people and will be saved from calamity, and this will make a way out for you from your problems.”

[Ibn Katheer (may Allah have mercy on him)]
