Are Muslims permitted to lie?
Muslim scholars teach that Muslims should be truthful to each other. But to the unbeliever “the infidels”, it is a different story.
Is it really true that Muslims are allowed to lie to unbelievers (non-Muslims)?
It’s screwy I know but YES, it is. The religion Islam allows Muslims to lie & deceive non-Muslims “the infidels”!!
There are two forms of lying that are permitted under “certain circumstances” called: taqiyyah and kitman.
Taqiyyah (or; Al-Taqiyya):
Saying/writing something that isn’t true.
Lying by omission (pick and choose what looks good and stay quiet about the rest).
Taqiyyah and kitman or “holy hypocrisy” has been diffused throughout Arabic culture for over fourteen hundred years since it was developed by Shiites as a means of defence and concealment of beliefs against Sunni unbelievers.
Sura (16:106) – Establishes that there are circumstances that can “compel” a Muslim to tell a lie.
Sura (3:28) – This verse tells Muslims not to take those outside the faith as friends, unless it is to “guard themselves.”
Sura (40:28) – A man is introduced as a believer, but one who must “hide his faith” among those who are not believers.
Sura (2:225) – “Allah will not call you to account for thoughtlessness in your oaths, but for the intention in your hearts”
Sura (66:2) – “Allah has already ordained for you, (O men), the dissolution of your oaths”
Bukhari (52:270) – Recounts the murder of a poet, Ka’b bin al-Ashraf, at Muhammad’s insistence. The men who volunteered for the assassination used dishonesty to gain Ka’b’s trust, pretending that they had turned against Muhammad. This drew the victim out of his fortress, whereupon he was brutally slaughtered despite putting up a ferocious struggle for his life.
Bukhari (49:857) – “He who makes peace between the people by inventing good information or saying good things, is not a liar.” Lying is permitted when the end justifies the means.
Bukhari (84:64-65) – Speaking from a position of power at the time, Ali confirms that lying is permissible in order to deceive an “enemy.”
From Islamic Law:
Reliance of the Traveler (p. 746) – “[it is] obligatory to lie if the goal is obligatory… Whether the purpose is war, settling a disagreement, or gaining the sympathy of a victim legally entitled to retaliate… it is not unlawful to lie when any of these aims can only be attained through lying. But is is religiously precautionary in all cases to employ words that give a misleading impression…”
Islam mandates deception [taqiyya] when Muslims deal with non-Muslims. Muslims are allowed to lie to unbelievers if the lie is for the protection of Islam or the furthering of Islamic goals and objectives. In the cause of Islamic expansionism Muslims falsely inform non-Muslims that: Islam is a “religion of peace”, the Quran mandates pluralism of religions, “jihad” is only about an “inner spiritual struggle”, unprovoked violence against non-Muslims is un-Islamic, immigrant Muslims wish to fully integrate into Western countries by adopting democratic principles instead of Sharia Law, Muhammad was a man of peace, etc. None of these things are true. Taqiyya is not about truth. Taqiyya is about deception — lulling Western people into a false sense of security, while, in reality, Islam directs Muslim immigrants to “appear integrated” while actually living as a state-within-a-state… UNTIL THEY TAKE OVER via violent jihad. Europe, be warned!
People need to understand that most of the Islamic websites on the Internet created by Muslims are practicing; Taqiyyah and Kitman. Taqiyya and Kitman are deception in Islamic warfare and the intention to deceive unbelievers (and Muslims) about Islam.
How many times have you not witnessed that Islamic spokesmen will rarely condemn a specific act of terrorism, honour murder, etc… and direct questions will be skillfully evaded.
Islamic spokesmen often practice a form of taqiyyah defined in psychology as “cognitive denial” by repetitive and extreme requests for “evidence” and “proof” of alleged terrorist acts, which they know cannot be disclosed.
Islamic spokesman will deny a claim or proposition in absolute terms. For example: “It is impossible to be a Muslim and a terrorist”, which is false, and “Islam forbids suicide”, which is true, but irrelevant when suicide- or martyrdom- attacks NOT are forbidden in the Qur’an.
