The Virtue of Truthfulness
As the Prophet Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, related:

I order you to be truthful, for indeed truthfulness leads to righteousness, and indeed righteousness leads to Paradise.

And beware of falsehood, for indeed falsehood leads to sinning, and indeed sinning leads to the Fire. A man continues to tell lies and strives upon falsehood until he is written as a liar with God.
