Kadhaba

Kidhb, kadhib (الكذب) verbal nouns of kadhaba (كذب) which is often translated as "lying" is defined according to the Arabs as follows

هو الإخبار عن الشيء على خلاف ما هو عليه، عمدا كان أو سهوا

To give information regarding something which is opposed to what it really is whether done purposely or forgetfully.
