Narrated from Aishah (RA) that Allah’s Apostle ﷺ said: “The testimony of a treacherous man is not admissible nor a treacherous woman nor a man lashed for the Hadd, nor a woman lashed nor an enemy harboring hatred for his brother nor a rehearsed witness nor a servant’s witness for his masters nor of one accused of slandering relationship”.

Chapter No: 3

Narrated from Ayman bin Khuraim that the Prophet ﷺ stood to give a sermon and said: "O you people False witness is made equivalent to Shirk with Allah" Then Allah’s Apostle ﷺ recited: “So shun the abomination of the idols and shun falsehood.”


Narrated from Khuraim bin Fatik Al-Asadi that Allah’s Apostle ﷺ offered the morning (Fajr) prayer. Then when he turned he stood up and said: "O you people! False witness is made equivalent to Shirk with Allah."Saying it thrice, then he recited this verse; ‘And shun false speech Until the end of the Ayah.’”


Abdur-Rahman bin Abi Bakrah narrated from his father that Allah’s Apostle ﷺ said: "Shall I not inform you of the greatest of the major sins?" They said: "Of course O Apostle of Allah ﷺ!" He said: "Shirk with Allah, disobeying parents, and false testimony." Or: "False speech" He said: "So the Apostle of Allah ﷺ did not stop saying it until we said (to ourselves): 'I wish he would be quiet. "

Chapter No: 4

Narrated from Imran bin Husain (RA) that Allah’s Apostle ﷺ said: "The best of people are my generation, then those who will succeed them, then those who will succeed them, then those who will succeed them." He said that thrice. "Then, after them a people will come who increase in fatness, loving fatness, giving testimony before being asked for it."


Clarification of this is in the Hadith of Umar bin Al-Khattab (RA), from the Prophet ﷺ who said: "The best of people are my generation, then those who will succeed them, then those who will succeed them. Then lying will spread, until a man testifies while his testimony was not requested, and a man will take an oath while an oath was not sought."
