I have heard that lying is OK in Allah's eyes if it is to bring someone to an embrace of Islam or for other purposes. It is not allowed to lie in order to make someone to embrace Islam.

You should: Repent: regret what you have committed in the past, refrain from committing such sins again, and ask for Allah's forgiveness. Do not tell others about your previous sins.

Per Islam, either the person claiming someone took something from them gives evidence OR in the lack of that evidence... the other person against whom the claim is made takes an oath.

Islam is against telling lies in general. The only exception is if you think that telling the truth will put your safety, or your money, or the safety of those who you care about, in danger. Then you are allowed to lie to escape such danger. In the case you described, I don't think you are really in any danger. You can simply say: "I can't lend you any ...

But you can't rely on His blessings if you do what is ...
