Are you a true believer? Or a liar!?..

عن صفوان بن سليم أنه قال: قيل لرسول الله – صلى الله عليه وسلم: أيكون المؤمن جبانًا؟ فقال: ((نعم)).

فقيل له: أيكون المؤمن بخيلاً؟ فقال: ((نعم)). 

فقيل له: أيكون المؤمن كذابًا؟ فقال: ((لا))

Imam Malik reported in Al Muwatta’ on the authority of Safwan ibn Sulaym who said: “Can a believer be a coward? 

He صلى الله عليه وسلمsaid: Yes. 

He was asked: Can a believer be a miser? 

Heصلى الله عليه وسلم said: Yes. 

He was asked: Can a believer be a liar? 

He صلى الله عليه وسلم said: No.”[ Al Muwatta’ 2/990.]
