A follow up query regarding the wording of the Hadith on deceiving

Question

I have seen your answer regarding the wording of the Hadith on deceiving. I would like to know, can I quote the words من غش ليس منا?

 

Answer

As stated in the answer you have alluded to in your question, I have not come across the words ‘من غش ليس منا’ in any primary Hadith source.

When quoting a Hadith, one should as far as possible stick to the words found in the primary sources. Therefore, instead of quoting the words من غش ليس منا, you should quote the wording of the versions which have been recorded  in primary sources. See some of these wordings here.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
