What is the connection between religion and truthfulness?

SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali (AS) said: The connection between truthfulness and religion is like head to the body [1]. So, truthfulness is placed right on top of the religion. It is also narrated from Imam Sadeq (AS) who said: When a person speaks the truth, the first being who approves that person is Allah (SWT) and that person also knows that he/she is telling the truth. If a person lies, the first being who rejects that person is the Almighty and that person also knows that he/she is a liar [2].
