What is the ruling on those who act different in front of people, having different personalities with different people?  Would it be considered deceiving?


 عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، أَنَّهُ سَمِعَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ ‏ “‏ إِنْ شَرَّ النَّاسِ ذُو الْوَجْهَيْنِ، الَّذِي يَأْتِي هَؤُلاَءِ بِوَجْهٍ وَهَؤُلاَءِ بِوَجْهٍ ‏”‏‏.‏

Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)s said, “The worst of all mankind is the double-faced one, who comes to some people with one face and to others, with another face.”
[Reported by al-Bukhaari and Muslim]

عَنْ عَمَّارٍ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ “‏ مَنْ كَانَ لَهُ وَجْهَانِ فِي الدُّنْيَا كَانَ لَهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ لِسَانَانِ مِنْ نَارٍ ‏”‏ ‏.‏

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: He who is two-faced in this world will have two tongues of fire on the Day of Resurrection.
