Cheating on an Exam
Question:

Is it okay to cheat during an exam? When I see students cheating, I warn them, but they tell me that there is nothing wrong in doing it. Please provide us with some insight - and may Allaah reward you. And may the peace, blessings, and mercy of Allaah be upon you.
Answer:

Cheating is unlawful, regardless whether it is an exam, in worship, or in dealing with others, because the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said: Whoever cheats us, is not from us. [1] And because of the manifold evils (in this world and the next) that result from cheating, it is obligatory to warn against it and to work together to eradicate it.
