Cheating on an Exam

Is it okay to cheat during an exam? When I see students cheating, I warn them, but they tell me that there is nothing wrong in doing it. Please provide us with some insight - and may Allaah reward you. And may the peace, blessings, and mercy of Allaah be upon you.

Cheating is unlawful, regardless whether it is an exam, in worship, or in dealing with others, because the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said: Whoever cheats us, is not from us. [1] And because of the manifold evils (in this world and the next) that result from cheating, it is obligatory to warn against it and to work together to eradicate it.

[1]Muslim no. 101.
