"O you who believe! Be afraid of Allaah, and be with those who are true (in word and deeds)." [al-Tawbah 9:119]
"It is only those who believe not in the Ayaat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allaah, who fabricate falsehood, and it is they who are liars." [al-Nahl 16:105]
It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) 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." (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 33; Muslim, 59)
It was narrated that Hafs ibn 'Aasim said: "The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: 'It is sufficient lying for a man to speak of everything that he hears.'" (Narrated by Muslim, 5)
