Yours requestingly


Lying, cheating and deception are not permissible in Islam. Even if teachers are not taking much notice of those who are cheating it is up to the person to conduct themselves in an honest manner. In each of these cases the person who helped cheat and the person who cheated will both have committed wrong and must repent to Allah the Almighty for their dishonesty.
