Is this a Hadith?

“A person who is two-faced cannot be trusted”



Yes, this is a Hadith of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) recorded in Musnad Ahmad, Al Adabul Mufrad and other Hadith sources.

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reported that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “A person who is two faced cannot be trustworthy.”

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
