  • Lying in Islam

    Hello,

    I would like to know everyone's opinions on whether things that occur as a result of lying or deception are also punished by Allah?
    For example, if you have hidden some information from someone but you feel it benefited both of you, would everything that occurred after this also be punished or just the lie itself?

    Many thanks for your time answering this question.

      This is punishable and plot

      The advice is to come clean and repent therefore

      It is in the Quran


      The Truth nobody wants to hear was never muted with the Revelation onto nor in order of the Prophets

      There for this tack is do to holes in knowledge and or divergent agenda. If it sounds natural then a misinterpretation was somewhere in the chain which leads to people concealing facts that are of poorly understood thus controversial content or manipulated and frame factors of actual matters

      By hiding this it corrupts the person to call to question and critique his orders and mission depending on the attitudes of others deviating from the meditation spirit of Doing with indulgence towards Allah's Pleasure

      Come clean about the truth of the matter usually comes to a point where we are confronted with cultural or biological realities of which we should resort to tawba and consult the Quran without interputation which is to directly address these matters

        As a general principle, Islam stresses the importance of integrity and honesty. Lying is haram except for very specific circumstances that involve bloodshed or slander. This principle is made abundantly clear in the Holy Qur'an:

        O ye who believe! Why say ye that which ye do not? Grievously odious is it in the sight of Allah that ye say that which ye do not (61:2-3).

        Lying is a sign of bad character. Meditate on the example of our Beloved Prophet (ﷺ), the most trustworthy of men. Ibn Kathir said:

        Then Allah tells us that His Messenger (ﷺ) is not a fabricator or a liar, because only the most evil of people who do not believe in the signs of Allah, the kuffar and heretics who are known amongst the people for telling lies, tell lies about Allah and His Messenger (ﷺ). The Messenger Muhammad (ﷺ) was the most truthful of people, the most righteous, the most perfect in knowledge, action, faith and certain belief. He was known amongst his people for his truthfulness; none of them doubted that, to such an extent that he was known amongst them as ‘al-Amin (the trustworthy) Muhammad.’

        Furthermore, it was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (r.a.) that the Prophet (ﷺ) said: “The signs of the hypocrite are three: when he speaks, he lies; when he makes a promise, he breaks it; and when he is entrusted with something, he betrays that trust.”

        You'd have to be more specific than that. Did you omit information or did you deliberately falsify it?
