Abdullaah bin Mas’ood said that the Prophet -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- said:

“عليكُم بالصدْقِ؛ فإنَّ الصدْق يَهْدي إلى البرِّ،
والبِرّ يَهْدي إلى الجنَّةِ، وما يَزالُ الرجلُ يَصْدُقُ،
وَيتَحرَّى الصِدْقَ حتى يُكْتَبَ عندَ الله صِدِّيقاً،
وإيَّاكُمْ والكَذِب! فإنَّ الكَذِبَ يَهدِي إلى الفُجورِ،
وإنَّ الفُجورَ يَهْدِي إلى النارِ،
وما يزالُ العَبْد يَكْذِبُ ويتَحرَّى الكَذِبَ،
حتى يُكْتَبَ عِنْدَ الله كذَّاباً”.

‘Be truthful, indeed Siddq (truthfulness) guides to Birr (good deeds) and indeed good deeds guide to Paradise. A man continues to be truthful and is careful to be truthful until he is written with Allaah as a truthful person.
And beware of lying, indeed lying leads to evil deeds, and indeed evil deeds lead to the Hell-Fire. A man continues to lie and is not careful about lying until he is written with Allaah as a liar.’
