Kindly verify the following narration
Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“Whosoever deceives the Arabs, will be deprived of my intercession and will not gain my affection”
Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) and others have recorded this narration with a very weak chain. Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has also pointed out it’s weakness.
(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3928. Refer: Mizanul I’tidal and Faydul Qadir, Hadith: 8880)
However, deceiving any fellow muslim is a sin and should be avoided at all costs.
In a Sahih (authentic) Hadith, Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said:
‘He who deceives us, is not from among us.’
(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 101)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
