Narrated ‘Abdullah (may Allah be pleased with him):

The Prophet (may Allah’s peace be upon him) said:

“Truthfulness leads to righteousness, and righteousness leads to Paradise.  And a man keeps on telling the truth until he becomes a truthful person.  Falsehood leads to Al-Fajur (i.e. wickedness, evil-doing), and Al-Fajur (wickedness) leads to the (Hell) Fire, and a man may keep on telling lies till he is written before Allah, a liar.”

Narrated An-Nu’man bin Bashir (may Allah be pleased with him):

The Prophet Muhammad (may Allah’s peace be upon him) said:

“Both legal and illegal things are obvious, and in between them are (suspicious) doubtful matters.  So whoever forsakes those doubtful things lest he may commit a sin, will definitely avoid what is clearly illegal; and whoever indulges in these (suspicious) doubtful things bravely, is likely to commit what is clearly illegal.  Sins are Allah’s Hima (i.e. private pasture) and whoever pastures (his sheep) near it, is likely to get in it at any moment.”

[Sahih Bukhari; Volume 3, Book 34, Number 267]
