Qur’an

Allah has declared:

“O ye who believe. Fear Allah and be only with those who are truthful.”

“And whosoever obeys Allah and his Messenger, such will be, in the company of those whom Allah has blessed: the Prophets, the truthful ones, the martyrs, and the righteous. And how excellent a company are such people!”

Hadith

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad [s] said:

“I order you to be truthful, for indeed truthfulness leads to righteousness, and indeed righteousness leads to Paradise. A man continues to be truthful and strives for truthfulness until he is written as a truthful person with Allah. And beware of falsehood, for indeed falsehood leads to sinning, and indeed sinning leads to the Fire. A man continues to tell lies and strive upon falsehood until he is written as a liar with Allah.”

“He who strives to love Allah and His Apostles and wishes Allah and His Apostles to love him must take care to speak nothing but the truth whenever he speaks.”

“Speak the truth even if you see your ruin or death in it for, surely, salvation and life lie alone in truth. And avoid falsehood even if it may hold out to you the promise of salvation and success, for the end of falsehood is nothing but failure and frustration.”
