Jay Smith and Lizzie’s New Tactic of Intimidation

In this Podcast we interview brother Syed who films at Speakers Corner and has a very popular Youtube Channel called SyedsShahid Productions (link provided below). Syed explains what happened to him after Lizzie Schofield apparently called the police on him for putting up a video with a “Fireworks” effect in the beginning. (i.e. Insinuating that this was a threat to her life.) Listen how the whole ordeal unraveled and how immature Jay Smith’s team have been acting over the past few weeks. It’s clear that the Extremist Christians at Speakers Corner have exhausted all their options and now have to stoop to using petty fear mongering tactics, such as writing hateful articles or filing false police reports to gain an edge against Islam.

David Wood’s Lizard Video – Being a Snake for Jesus!

In this Podcast Abu Ayoub and Yahya Snow discuss David Wood’s latest video where he mocks the prophet Muhammad (pbuh) recommendation to kill house lizards.  Both Muslims go into background of this ruling, bringing quotes from Islamic Scholars, as well as showing the health benefits by such a recommendation.  Finally, they turn the mockery back and David Wood and his likes, showing how early Christian Commentaries actually have the same type of implication in the Bible.

Does Allah command evil and indecency?

Bismillah_FullThis is in response to an article published on a notorious anti-Islamic site. (Read it in full Here)

In that article the heathen writer has written that Allah in Qur’an 17:16 commands people to commit indecency and then punish them for doing so. The translation he has given to the verse goes as;

“And when We desire to destroy a city, WE COMMAND its men who live at ease, AND THEY COMMIT UNGODLINESS therein, then the Word is realized against it, and We destroy it utterly.” S. 17:16

It does not seem odd of a Christian playing with the Word of God for this is their ancestrally profession, The Arabic wording of the verse goes as;

وَإِذَا أَرَدْنَا أَنْ نُهْلِكَ قَرْيَةً أَمَرْنَا مُتْرَفِيهَا فَفَسَقُوا فِيهَا فَحَقَّ عَلَيْهَا الْقَوْلُ فَدَمَّرْنَاهَا تَدْمِيرًا
Now I give some well known translations of this verse;
Taqi Usmani: “And when We intend to destroy a habitation, We command its affluent people (to do good), then they commit sins therein, and thus the word (of punishment) becomes applicable to it (habitation), and We annihilate it totally.”

Yusuf Ali: “When We decide to destroy a population, We (first) send a definite order to those among them who are given the good things of this life and yet transgress; so that the word is proved true against them: then (it is) We destroy them utterly.”

Shakir Ali: “And when We wish to destroy a town, We send Our commandment to the people of it who lead easy lives, but they transgress therein; thus the word proves true against it, so We destroy it with utter destruction.”

Pickthal: “And when We would destroy a township We send commandment to its folk who live at ease, and afterward they commit abomination therein, and so the Word (of doom) hath effect for it, and we annihilate it with complete annihilation.”

Hilali/Mohsin Khan: “And when We intend to destroy a city, We command its affluent but they defiantly disobey therein; so the word comes into effect upon it, and We destroy it with [complete] destruction.”

Maududi: “When We decree that a habitation should be destroyed, We give Commands to its well-to-do people and they show disobedience; then that habitation incurs just torment and We totally exterminate it.”

Asad: “But when [this has been done, and] it is Our will to destroy a community, We convey Our last warning” to those of its people who have lost themselves entirely in the pursuit of pleasures; and [if] they [continue to] act sinfully, the sentence [of doom] passed on the community takes effect, and We break it to smithereens.” 

Infact even other orientalists have translated this verse in a way that does not leave any room for the liars to play with fire:

George Sale: “And when We resolved to destroy a city, We commanded the inhabitants thereof, who lived in affluence, to obey our Apostle; but they acted corruptly herein: Wherefore the sentence was justly pronounced against that city; and We destroyed it with an utter destruction.”

Further let’s see the commentary of Abdullah Yusuf Ali on this verse. He writes;
“Allah’s Mercy gives every chance to the wicked to repent. When wickedness gets so rampant that punishment becomes inevitable, even then Allah’s Mercy and Justice act together. Those who are highly gifted from Allah-it may be with wealth or position, or it may be with talents and opportunities-are expected to understand and obey. They are given a definite order and warning. If they still transgress there is no further room for argument. They cannot plead that they were ignorant. The command of the Lord is proved against them, and its application is called for beyond doubt. Then it is that their punishment is completed.”

All these famous and authentic translations and commentaries prove that the true meaning of this verse is that when a people have become too stubborn in their opposition to Allah’s commandments, He gives them the commandment to correct their way of life, but as they transgress therein Allah punishes them. This is what it means.

Trickery of the writer:
The insane writer has brought up a little known translation here and hasn’t used any of the well known translations as they leave no room for him to twist the real meanings of the verse. He uses the Translation of Yusuf Ali, Pickthal and Asad later on but here he plays the trick to pollute the innocent minds.

He has used the translation of A.J. Arberry who was an Orientalist and a non-Muslim whose translation is very rarely, in fact hardly ever, referred to in the Islamic word for there are certain mistakes of omission and mistranslation with him. I don’t claim that he has intentionally mistranslated here but because of his less knowledge compared to the Muslim translators he has not been able to give the real meaning in exclusive sense. Even his translation does not actually give the meaning that the author of the article has tried to, but it does leave a slight room for the heathens like him.

Islamic divorce law:

Further he gives the wrapped view of the some divorce laws in Islam. Islam says that if a husband and wife divorce then they cannot remarry until the woman has married another person and that person either dies or divorces her after having consummated the marriage. He says that this is another point where Allah, to his understanding, commands indecency.

Why such a Law? To see whether he is right or wrong, lets see the rationale of this Law.

Firstly, Islam gives such a mechanism of family life that if strictly followed, there are quite less chances of divorce. In case some differences arise even then Islam’s prescribed way of divorce as laid down in the Holy Qur’an surah 2, ayah 229-230 and Ahadith give a lot of time for the rapprochement between the spouses. But if done Islam does not allow them to remarry unless the woman marries with someone else and the marriage is consummated and then either she is divorced or widowed. Islam prescribes this in order to make the couple think before making any emotional or out bursting decision and to ensure that marriage and divorce does not become a child play.

Having said this, Islam allows them still to marry under the above mentioned rules. I wonder how can one can call this indecency or lewdness as the other person with whom the woman will have relations meanwhile will be her husband then legally married to her. Yes, if somebody tries to play with the law and marries a person with a pre-condition of divorce then definitely it will be lewdness and Allah has forbidden this. Such an act is called Hilala which has been condemned in strongest terms.

أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ لَعَنَ اللَّهُ الْمُحَلِّلَ وَالْمُحَلَّلَ لَهُ

Narrated Ali, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Cursed be upon the one who marries a divorced woman with the intention of making her lawful for her former husband and upon the one for whom she is made lawful. (Sunan Abu Dawud, Hadith 2076. Classified as Sahih by Albani)

 

But there is no rationality in not allowing the remarriage even after woman has married another man and got widowed or divorced. It has no reason to be banned. But for remarriage between those two people such a condition is attached only to have deterrence against divorce which is, though lawful, but abhorred in the sight of Allah.

عن عبد الله بن عمر رضي الله عنهما ، قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : « ما أحل الله شيئا أبغض إليه من الطلاق

 

Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Of all the lawful acts the most detestable to Allah is divorce. (Mustadrak Hakim, Hadith 2745. Classified as Sahih by Al-Hakim. Dhahbi agreed with him)

 

On the meaning of word “Rafath”:

In the end the writer has poured out his ignorance about the Qur’anic language. He says that it means obscenity and lewdness and Qur’an allows Muslims “Rafath” to their wives in 2:187 thus he says Allah has commanded Muslims obscenity.

If we read the commentary of this word in Tafsir Ibn Kathir, that this person himself mentioned, we read;

“Whatever might lead to sexual intercourse, such as embracing, kissing and talking to women about similar subjects, is not allowed. Ibn Jarir reported that Nafi` narrated that `Abdullah bin `Umar said, “Rafath means sexual intercourse or mentioning this subject with the tongue, by either men or women.” `Ata’ bin Abu Rabah said that Rafath means sexual intercourse and foul speech. This is also the opinion of `Amr bin Dinar. `Ata’ also said that they used to even prevent talking (or hinting) about this subject. Tawus said that Rafath includes one’s saying, “When I end the Ihram I will have sex with you.” This is also the same explanation offered by Abu Al-`Aliyah regarding Rafath. `Ali bin Abu Talhah said that Ibn `Abbas said, “Rafath means having sex with the wife, kissing, fondling and saying foul words to her, and similar acts.” Ibn `Abbas and Ibn `Umar said that Rafath means to have sex with women. This is also the opinion of Sa`id bin Jubayr, `Ikrimah, Mujahid, Ibrahim An-Nakha`i, Abu Al-`Aliyah who narrated it from `Ata’ and Makhul, `Ata Al-Khurasani, `Ata’ bin Yasar, `Atiyah, Ibrahim, Ar-Rabi`, Az-Zuhri, As-Suddi, Malik bin Anas, Muqatil bin Hayyan, `Abdul-Karim bin Malik, Al-Hasan, Qatadah and Ad-Dahhak, and others.”

(Tafsir Ibn Kathir under Ayah 197, Surah 2)
.

In this passage the writer has emphasized the words, “foul speech” and “foul words” etc. and then gives the impression that it means lewdness and obscenity as understood generally. Infact it only refers to the intimate words that a husband may say to his wife during their intimate relation. Infact Abdullah b. Umar’s statement in this passage conveys the very same meaning. i.e. “Rafath means sexual intercourse or mentioning this subject with the tongue, by either men or women.”

So what we find is that the word Rafath means intimate relation (physical or in words) and when Qur’an says that its allowed in Ramadan during nights (2:187), it clarifies by saying;

أُحِلَّ لَكُمْ لَيْلَةَ الصِّيَامِ الرَّفَثُ إِلَى نِسَائِكُمْ

“Permitted to you, on the night of the fasts, is the approach (Rafath) to your wives.”

Mark the words “to your wives”. And no sane would ever call this obscenity or lewdness. But definitely same when out of marital contract will be lewdness and obscenity without doubt.

Edward William Lane gives its meaning as; “He went into his wife, he compressed her, or was with her alone in private.” (Arabic-English Lexicon part 3 p. 1118)

And in Qur’an 2:197 Rafath is forbidden during Hajj i.e. all intimate relations are disallowed, with wives of course, others are always forbidden in Islam.

So the heathen writer makes really a poor case and lacks reason and rationality and is merely trying to play with people not aware of the dirty missionary tactics.

But surely falsehood has no feet to stand on.

“Truth has (now) arrived, and Falsehood perished: for Falsehood is (by its nature) bound to perish.” (Qur’an 17:81)

Jay Smith’s Asylum Convert

On the website of Pfander Ministries there was a very peculiar story shared about an Iranian convert to Christianity. Jay Smith’s close confidant, Lizzie Schofield share’s the story of Sadegh on their website.

In this video Brothers Ijaz Ahmad, Yahya Snow and Abu Ayoub sit down and discuss the story of this so-called ExMuslim, and point out the many inconsistencies and holes in his story.

Please watch, and share with your friends.

Why Quran calls Mary, a Sister of Aaron ?

Bismillah_FullThe verse in question is;

“O sister of Aaron! Thy father was not a man of evil, nor thy mother a woman unchaste!” (Al-Qur’an 19:28)

It does not mean that here Qur’an calls Mary, the real sister of Aaron, the Prophet who was hundreds of years before her. Here she is only being called a female person of the family, from the Noble lineage of Prophet Aaron.

The Qur’anic usage:


In order to understand Qur’anic language one must look into other Qur’anic passages.

Qur’ans calls Prophet Shoaib as the brother of the people of Midian. Qur’an says;

“And unto Midian (We sent) their brother, Shu’eyb.” (Al-Qur’an 7:85)

And similarly Qur’an calls Prophet Salih, the brother of the people of Thamud. It says;

“And unto Thamud (We sent) their brother Salih.” (Al-Qur’an 11:61)

In both these examples it is never meant that the Prophets were the real brothers of the each and every person of that tribe. It’s only way to address them. It means that Shu’aib was a (male) person from the people of Midian and similarly Salih from the people of Thamud.

So in the very same manner when Qur’an describes Mary, the mother of Christ as ‘Sister of Aaron’, It means that she is being referred to as a (female) person from the people, the lineage of Prophet Aaron.
This is infact an Arabic idiom, a way to address. In Arabia a person from the tribe Banu Mudhar may be addressed as Ya Akha Mudhar, meaning ‘O the brother of Mudhar’.

The Prophetic answer to this question:

Mughira b. Shu’ba reported: When I came to Najran, they (the Christians of Najran) asked me: You read” O sister of Aaron”, whereas Moses was born much before Jesus. When I came back to Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) I asked him about that, whereupon he said: “The (people of the old age) used to call names (of their persons) after the names of the Prophets and pious persons who had gone before them.” (Sahih Muslim, Book on General Behaviour, Hadith 3962)

The Holy Prophet (PBUH) meant to say that Mary’s relationship with Prophet Aaron was mentioned because she was of his lineage for among Semites it was common to associate a person with his lineage.

This fits the context as well. The people thought that Mary had done something unworthy of a chaste woman and thus as they rebuked her, they first made a reference to her noble ancestry and then testified that even her own father was no wicked person (verse 28).

Observations from the Bible:

1- One thing we need to consider is that Qur’an does not call Mary ‘Sister of Moses’ but ‘Sister of Aaron’.

2- Aaron (PBUH) we know was the first in line for the Israelite priesthood.

3- New Testament clearly tells us that Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist (PBUH) was from the lineage of Aaron (Luke 1:5). Also it tells that Mary was a cousin of Elizabeth (1:36). Therefore we can easily call them both ‘Sisters of Aaron’ i.e. from the lineage of Aaron.

4- Infact we have evidence of the similar usage from the Bible. In Genesis 13:8 Abraham and Lot are called brothers while certainly they did not come from loins of one individual. It reads;

“And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren.”

A certain Christian commentator, Adam Clarke says in his commentary to this verse;

‘[It means] we are of the same family, worship the same God in the same way, have the same promises, and look for the same end.’

Was the same not true in case of Mary and Aaron? Were they both not from the same priestly family and of same faith?

So the conclusion is that this is only a beautiful way of expression in the Arabic language and to try to twist it some other way speaks only of ones inner wickedness and that’s all!

Response To ‘Taqiyya’ Deception – Lying

Bismillah_Full

Oft-repeated claims by critics spout that Islam allows lying in ‘all circumstances’. They further say that Islam allows their followers to lie to take advantage of non-believers and infiltrate high governmental positions. These claims are false. When I read these comments in some of the websites, I didn’t know whether to laugh or feel sorry for the gullible folks who believe such rubbish.

Related Article:
‘Holy Bible’ Allows Lying – Deception

For those who make these allegations, their method to convince their gullible followers is by quoting a verse here and there from the Qur’an, and then misquote scholarly statements by deliberately leaving out the conditions when lying is permissible in rare circumstances. By doing this, they present this to ignorant folk, saying “here, you see Islam sanctions lying to non-believers in all circumstances”

In actual reality, when we examine all these Quranic verses and Hadiths, in none of them is there any mention that one is allowed to lie to non-Muslims.. Nor is there any mention or indication that a Muslim is allowed to take advantage of disbelievers – these are claims made by crazy deluded Islamophobes who have no support from the Quran or Hadith.

Lying in order to advance one’s faith is not an Islamic doctrine and has never been. I challenge anyone to bring one proof from the Quran or Hadith where it says that ‘one can use deception to advance Islam.’ You won’t find it. However, such doctrine, to advance one’s faith by lying is found and sanctioned in the Bible.

Apostle Paul sanctions lying in order to advance Christianity. Paul admits in Corinthians 9:19-23 that during his ministry, preaching his Paulinism (Christianity of today), that he falsely acted in order to draw people to Christianity. Click on the following article here. I have provided some of the early Church fathers’ commentaries on the verse (Corinthians 9:19-23), in agreement that the verse allows deception in them circumstances, to advance Christianity.

With that said, let’s look at the Islamic view when one is allowed to utter a lie. The following are exceptional circumstances:

1. To make peace between two friends to avoid feud (or bloodshed)
2. To make your spouse happy
3. In war, to get the upper hand against the enemy.
4. When one is persecuted, he can say things which may not be true
5. To make someone escape torture from a tyrant, to avoid handing over an innocent person to an oppressor.

These are the only times when one is allowed to lie. Note: the articles below are a refutation to critics misusing, twisting Islamic scripture.  I have also covered each of the above instances in a lot more detail – please click on the links below:

The Qur’an:

1. Qur’an 16:106 – ‘Except For One Who Is Forced…’

2. Qur’an 3:28 – Not To Take Non-Believers As Friends?

3. Qur’an 9:3 – ‘Dissolution Of Oaths’

4. Qur’an 40:28 – ‘A Believer Lying?’

5. Qur’an 2:225 – ‘Unintentional Oaths’

6. Qur’an 66:2 – The Prophet (p)

7. Qur’an 3:54 – ‘Allah Is A Deceiver’?

8. Qur’an 8:30 – Makr – Makara

9. Qur’an 10:21 – Makr – Makara

From the Hadith:

1. Bukhari 52:269 –  ‘War is deceit.’”

2. Bukhari 49:857 – “He who makes peace between two people…

3. Bukhari 84:64 – Ali (Ra) tricking the enemy in war

4. Muslim 32:6303 – “…he did not hear that exemption was granted in anything what the people speak as lie but in three cases: in battle, for bringing reconciliation amongst persons and the narration of the words of the husband to his wife, and the narration of the words of a wife to her husband.”

5. Bukhari 50:369 – Ka’b bin al-Ashraf

Taqiyya And Its Meaning:

Also check out the following link on ‘Taqiyya’ which is been hurled at by Islamophobes that all Muslims follow this doctrine. However, as I have demonstrated from Muslim and non-Muslim academics, they all agree that this doctrine (Taqiyya, Takiya) is only endorsed by the Shia, which make up 15 to 20% of the World’s  Muslim population. The rest, 80% of the World’s Muslims, who are Sunni, have never had such doctrine or endorsed such: Click here for the article –  ‘Taqiyya’ (Takiya) Meaning.

Refutation To Taqiyya:

Moreover, Islamic Scholar Shaykh Ashiq Ilahi Madni was so infuriated by Shias who use the doctrine of ‘Taqiyya’ that he wrote a refutation against their false doctrine, and stating that ‘Taqiyya’ which is endorsed by those heretics (Shias), has no place in Islam, nor has Islam ever endorsed it. Here is what the Scholar, Shaykh Ashiq Ilahi Madni wrote:

A REFUTATION OF THE ‘TAQIYYA’ OF THE RAWAFIDH
The sect called the Rawafidh (part of the shia movement) attaches such great importance to the practice of ‘Taqiyya’ (lying in religious matters) that a renowned proverb amongst them is that the person who does not practise Taqiya has no belief (Iman). They quote in their support the above verse, ‘unless you have to safeguard yourselves from enemies.’ At the outset it should be understood why they resorted to this practice. The Jews taught these people a Din (religion) other than that brought by the Holy Prophet and impressed on their minds that Sayyidina Ali… was supposed to be the immediate leader after the Holy Prophet… They were told that the other Caliphs (Kalifas) viz. Sayyidina Abu Bakr… Sayyidina Umar… and Sayyidina Uthman… unsurped the Caliphate (Khilafah) from him. However, true Muslims ask them the reason why Sayyidina Ali remained silent about the matter for 26 years, not once laying claim to his right? Why did he, during this entire period, even participate in their meetings and fight with in Jihad? Why did he join them in all their Jumu’ah, Eid and daily Salah? In reply to all of this they have been taught by their tutors (the Jews) to say that Sayyidina Ali… was practising Taqiya. This practice of ‘taqiya’ is such a weapon that the enemies have placed in their hands that they regard it as being fundamental f Din (religion) and use it in every defence. When they deliberately say many things that contradict their beliefs, they actually feel that they are doing an act of virtue. How vast is the difference between their cowardly practice of ‘Taqiya’ and the outstanding courageousness of Sayyidina Ali whom they claim to follow!

It is not the trait if people of belief (Iman) to falter before falsehood. If indeed it was the right of Sayyidina Ali to ascend to the Caliphate (Khilafah), he would have fought for the truth and not given in to the other three Khulafa. It is not conceivable that the vicegerent of the greatest Holy prophet should yield to the authority of any oppressor. To view the matter from another angle, the incident of Sayyidina Husain, should be examined. When the Rawafidh summoned him to Kufa and then deserted him, he chose to fight to the end for the sake of the truth. He even had to endure the killing of so many of his family members, but he never yielded to the pressure of those whom he considered to be oppressive. He could have practiced ‘Taqiya’ to appease Yazid and Ibn Ziyad, but he did not. This episode clearly displays the fact that there exists no ‘taqiya’ in the Din (religion), for it was not even practised by people like Sayyidina Husain whom these Shias claim to follow. Whatever incidents the Shias narrate regarding ‘Taqiya’ of their ‘scholar’s (Imams)’ are all fabrications and contradict the status of these noble personalities. It is just not possible that they conceal one thing in their hearts and practice another. This practice of ‘Taqiya’ has no basis from the Qur’an whatsoever. ‘…unless you have to safeguard yourselves from enemies.’ This verse applies to the case when a Muslim is in endanger of suffering harm from the disbelievers infidels (Kuffar) e.g. they force him to make any statement of infidelity (kufr) under a threat, which they are able to induce and which shall prove unbearable to the Muslim In question. This is as Allah says Surah Nahl (verse 106), save for him who is forced, but his heart is content with belief (Iman).’ Even in this case, however, it will be best to endure suffering and not concede. [1]

As I have responded to the claims made against Islam on lying, I do not need to go over it again. Rather, I will quote Quranic verses and Hadith where it clearly states that lying is forbidden, should be avoided in all circumstances and is a major sin. The following, God and Prophet Mohammad (p) speak on the importance of being truthful in all circumstances. And a person who lies is hated in the sight of Allah. In short, telling the truth is virtuous and leads one to Paradise.

The Qur’an:

O YOU who have attained to faith! Be ever steadfast in upholding equity, bearing witness to the truth for the sake of God, even though it be against your own selves or your parents and kinsfolk. Whether the person concerned be rich or poor, God’s claim takes precedence over [the claims of] either of them. Do not, then, follow your own desires, lest you swerve from justice: for if you distort [the truth], behold, God is indeed aware of all that you do! – Quran 4:135

O ye who believe! Be careful of your duty to Allah, and be with the truthful. – Quran 9:119

Allah will say: “This is a Day on which the truthful will profit from their truth: theirs are Gardens under which rivers flow (in Paradise) – they shall abide therein forever. Allah is pleased with them and they with Him. That is the great success (Paradise). – Quran 5:119

That Allah may reward the true men for their truth, and punish the hypocrites if He will, or relent toward them (if He will). Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. – Quran 33:24

O you who believe! Keep your duty to Allah and fear Him, and speak (always) the truth. – Quran 33:70

And do not mix the truth with falsehood or conceal the truth while you know [it]. – Quran 2:42

From The Hadith:

‘Abdullah reported Allah’s Messenger as saying: It is obligatory for you to tell the truth, for truth leads to virtue and virtue leads to Paradise, and the man who continues to speak the truth and endeavours to tell the truth is eventually recorded as truthful with Allah, and beware of telling of a lie for telling of a lie leads to obscenity and obscenity leads to Hell-Fire, and the person who keeps telling lies and endeavours to tell a lie is recorded as a liar with Allah. (Sahih Muslim Book 32, Hadith 6309)

‘Abdullah b. Mas’ud reported Allah’s Messenger as saying: Telling of truth is a virtue and virtue leads to Paradise and the servant who endeavours to tell the truth is recorded as truthful, and lie is obscenity and obscenity leads to Hell-Fire, and the servant who endeavours to tell a lie is recorded as a liar. Ibn Abu Shaiba reported this from Allah’s Apostle. (Sahih Muslim Book 32, Hadith 6308)

Aishah narrated: “There was no behaviour more hated to the Messenger of Allah than lying. A man would lie in narrating something in the presence of the Prophet, and he would not be content until he knew that he had repented.” (Jami` at-Tirmidhi Volume 4, Book 1, Hadith 1973)

Abdullah reported that the Prophet (p) said, “You must be truthful. Truthfulness leads to dutifulness and dutifulness leads to the Garden. A man continues to tell the truth until he is written as a siddiq with Allah. Beware of lying. Lying leads to deviance and deviance leads to the Fire. A man continues to lie until he is written as a liar with Allah.” (Al-Adab Al-Mufrad: Book 21, Hadith 386)

The Prophet (p) guaranteed paradise to anyone if they can avoid lying even when joking.
The Prophet said: I guarantee a house in the surroundings of Paradise for a man who avoids quarrelling even if he were in the right, a house in the middle of Paradise for a man who avoids lying even if he were joking, and a house in the upper part of Paradise for a man who made his character good. (Sunan Abi Dawud Book 42, Hadith 4782)
