LYING Arabic kizzab كذاب
A pretty general infirmity of nature in the East, which still remains uncorrected by the modern influences of Islam. But Muhammad is related to have said: “When a servant of God tells a lie, his guardian angels move away from his to the distance of one mile, because of the badness of its smell.” (Mishkat, book xxii. ch. ii.)
