عن عبد الله بن مسعود -رضي الله عنه- قال: قال رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم-: «عليكم بالصدق، فإن الصدق يهدي إلى البِرِّ، وإن البر يهدي إلى الجنة، وما يزال الرجل يصدق ويَتَحَرَّى الصدق حتى يكتب عند الله صِدِّيقًا، وإياكم والكذب، فإن الكذب يهدي إلى الفجور، وإن الفجور يهدي إلى النار، وما يزال الرجل يكذب ويَتَحَرَّى الكذب حتى يكتب عند الله كَذَّابا»
[صحيح.] - [متفق عليه.]

‘Abdullāh ibn Mas‘ūd (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) said: “Adhere to truthfulness, for truthfulness leads to righteousness and righteousness leads to Paradise. A man will keep speaking the truth and striving to speak the truth until he will be recorded with Allah as the most truthful. Beware of lying, for lying leads to wickedness and wickedness leads to Hell fire. A man will keep telling lies and striving to tell lies until he is recorded with Allah as the most liar."
[Sahih/Authentic] - [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Explanation

The Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) urged Muslims to be truthful at all times, and clarified its good consequences in this world and in the Hereafter. Truthfulness is the foundation of righteousness which is the road to Paradise. If a man is keen on being truthful, he will be labeled among the truthful in the sight of Allah, which predicts a good and safe ending for him. The Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) also warned from lying and clarified its harm and evil consequences. Lying is the foundation of wickedness which is the road to Hellfire.
