• false • impressions • are • haraam •

Hadith #1549 [621 in the abridged version] – page 420-21;

Asma radi Allahu anha reported: a woman came to the Allah’s Messenger sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam and said: “I have a co-wife. Is there any harm for me if i give her the false impression of getting something from my husband which he has not in fact given me?” Allah’s Messenger sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam said, “The one who creates a false impression of receiving what one has not been given is like one who wears two garments of falsehood.” [bukhari and muslim]

Commentary: some people disguise themselves as pious to create a false impression of their piety; some put up the appearance of scholars to establish their scholarship; and some take to highly expensive clothes to give the impression of being rich. Since these things are fabricated and false, they constitute great sins. One should live as one really is.
