Lying and Iman never come together

Question

Kindly inform me if this is a Hadith?

الكذب مجانب للإيمان

“Lying and faith never come together”

 

Answer

This narration has been recorded as a Hadith of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and as the statement of Sayyiduna Abu Bakr As Siddiq (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

Imams Daraqutni and Bayhaqi (rahimahumallah) have stated that the correct version is that this is the statement of Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Musnad Ahmad, vol. 1 pg. 5, Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, 26115, As Sunanul Kubra, vol. 10 pg. 197, Shu’abul Iman: 4466-4467-4468. Also see: Fathul Bari, Hadith: 6094, Faydul Qadir, Hadith: 2931 and Al Maqasidul Hasanah, Hadith: 796)

 

This narration should therefore be quoted as the statement of Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
