Disease: Al-Ghish (Fraud, to conceal fault/harm either for religious/wordly pursuits even from a protected minority)

Adornment of a fault or making an evil look good. In the Shariah it is haram to sell something without pointing out its faults. This is prominent in modern advertising. In Greece the Sophace (sp), were ones who mastered rhetoric. They believed that the most important thing is to be convincing. Learning the “art of persuasion”. It doesn’t matter if something is right/wrong, as long as you can justify it. In Islam rhetoric is the art of embelishing the truth. (A totally different world view). “Men are either smart wolves or dumb sheep”, and dumb sheep get eaten by smart wolves- a modern, western philosophy. This is Ghish a it is Haram.
