Hadith #12 – Whoever Deceives is Not One of Us

Hadith #12 Notes

Abu Huraira (ra) said, The Messenger of Allah happened to pass by a heap of corn. He thrust his hand in it and his fingers felt wetness. He said to the owner of that heap of corn, “What is this?” He replied: “O Messenger of Allah! These have been drenched by rainfall.” He remarked, “Why did you not place it on top so that the people might see it? Whoever deceives is not of us.”

How can we avoid deception in our daily lives? Sh. Omar Suleiman describes deception in business transactions, deception in marriage, as well as different types of cheating.
