Cheating In English Subject

I study in a University in Riyadh, and I have noticed that some students cheat during exams in certain subjects, some subjects more then others, most often in English subject. When I argue with these students, they say that some scholars have ruled that it is not unlawful to cheat in English subject. Please tell us what the ruling is in this issue.

In an authentic Hadith, the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said: Whoever cheats us, is not from us. [1] This includes cheating in ones dealings, cheating on a test, cheating on an English test, and cheating in all of its forms. Students are therefore not allowed to cheat in any subject, and this prohibition is based on the above-mentioned Hadith and other similar narrations. And with Allaah is the facilitation to do what is right.
