{وَلا تَقْفُ مَا لَيْسَ لَكَ بِهِ عِلْمٌ...}
Allah, the Almighty, says: “And do not pursue that of which you have no knowledge.” [Al-Isrâ 17:36] 

                            {مَا يَلْفِظُ مِنْ قَوْلٍ إِلَّا لَدَيْهِ رَقِيبٌ عَتِيدٌ}
Allah, the Almighty, says: “Man does not utter any word except that with him is an observer prepared [to record].” [Qaf: 18] 

‹‹إنَّ الصدقَ يهدي إلى البر وإن البر يهدي إلى الجنة، وإن الرجل ليصدق حتى يُكتب عند الله صديقاً، وإن الكذب يهدي إلى الفُجور، وإن الفجور يهدي إلى النَّار، وإنَّ الرَّجل ليكذبُ حتى يُكتب عند الله كذابا››

On the authority of Ibn Mas’ud (may Allah be pleased with him) who narrated that the Messenger of Allah said: Truth leads to piety and piety leads to Paradise. A man keeps on telling truth till he is recorded as a truthful person. Lying leads to falsehood, falsehood leads to the Hellfire. A man keeps on lying till he is recorded as a liar. [Agreed upon] 


‹‹أربعٌ من كُنَّ فيه كان مُنافقا خالصا، ومن كان فيه خصلةٌ منهن، كانت فيه خصلة من نفاقٍ حتَّى يدعها: إذا اؤتمن خان، وإذا حدَّث كذب، وإذا عاهد غدر، وإذا خاصم فجر››

On the authority of Abdullah Ibn Amr Ibn Alـ’As (may Allah be pleased with him) who narrated that the Messenger of Allah said: “Whosoever possesses these four characteristics is a sheer hypocrite and anyone who possesses one of them possesses a characteristic of hypocrisy till he gives it up: When he makes a covenant, he acts treacherously; When he talks, he lies; when he makes a promise, he breaks it; and when he quarrels he deviates from the Truth (he begins to abuse.” [Agreed upon]


                            ‹‹كفى بالمرء كذبا أن يحدِّثَ بكلِّ ما سمع››
                                             رواه مسلم
In another Hadith, which the Prophet shunned the one who transmits everything he hears. It is narrated by Abu Hurayrah, that the Prophet said: It is enough falsehood for a man to transmit everything he hears. [Reported by Muslim]


‹‹دعتني أمي يوما ورسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قاعد في بيتنا فقالت ها تعال أعطيك فقال لها رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وما أردت أن تعطيه ؟ قالت : أعطيه تمرا ، فقال لها رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : أما إنك لو لم تعطيه شيئا كتبت عليك كذبة››
رواه أبو داود
Abdullah bin ‘Amer said: The Prophet came to our home when I was a young boy. I went out to play and my mother told me: Abdullah, come here and I will give you something. Then the Prophet asked her “what were you going to give him?” She answered “Dates”, He then said: If you hadn’t given him, it would have been recorded upon you as a lie. [Reported by Abu Dawud]

The Prophet said: “One keeps telling lies till he is recorded by Allah as a liar.” [Reported by Al-Tirmizi] 

‹‹ما يزال العبد يكذب ‏ ‏ ويتحرى ‏ ‏ الكذب حتى يكتب عند الله كذابا ››رواه الترمذي

Dear Muslim brother be careful not to lie, as lying is the base of falsehood. The Prophet said:" lying leads to falsehood and falsehood leads to the hellfire.” [Agreed upon] 

‹‹إن الكذب يهدي إلى الفجور، وإن الفجور يهدي إلى النار››
