Laws Governing False Statements in Islam – “Permissible Lying”

Posted on January 11, 2015


There are many topics in Islam that all non-Muslim people (kufar) should be aware of before entering into conversation with Muslims about Islam and Islamic Sacred Law aka Shariah. The first and most important thing to know about Sharia are the Laws Governing False Statements.

Below are 5 pages on the topic of “holding ones tongue” from a book called The Reliance of the Traveller, or Umdat al-Salik, it was composed in the 14th Century by Shihabuddin Abu al-‘Abbas Ahmad ibn an-Naqib al-Misri (1302–1367). It is a classical manual of Shafi’i fiqh, meaning it is an authoritative summation of the Islamic jurisprudence– also known as Shari’a.

Policemen who are not Muslim are wrongdoers and should not be helped. Teaching Sacred Law (Sharia) to non-Muslims is forbidden (haram) according to Sharia, as non-Muslims would not want to apply Sharia in their own lives, therefore their purpose is unworthy.

If you are a non-Muslim it is actually illegal according to Islamic Law to teach you about the pages you are reading. Any Muslim who teaches these things to non-Muslims is considered disobedient and possibly an apostate of Islam.

Lying is unlawful and disgusting……. BUT….. there are EXCEPTIONS.

Reliance of the Traveller LYING 2

Lying becomes a crime if you can make your point by telling the truth.

There are situations when it becomes an OBLIGATION to LIE when your final goal is an OBLIGATION. As Muslims you are OBLIGATED to spread Islam around the world, and if you have to do so by lying, it becomes your obligation.

Watch Kansas City area Muslim leaders Mahnaz Shabbir and Ahmed El-Sherif purposely mislead Pastor Adam Hamilton regarding Quran 5:32 in the video above.

“Religiously” more precautionary to give a misleading impression.

Reliance of the Traveller LYING 4

Often times people focus on the killing of infidels, apostates, adulterers, etc. that Sharia requires of Muslims, but any true follower of Islam will lie repeatedly about all of those topics. Start by understanding that lying is prescribed by Allah and Prophet Mohammed when dealing with non-Muslims (kufar) and even other Muslims who are not quite Muslim enough….. aka Moderates.

Yes, Sharia adherents do have a legal obligation to lie. Don’t ask an Islamic Leader, as he/she is obligated to lie to you. The obligation of the Non-Muslim is to be informed of this information, and share it with all non-Muslims. Many Muslims themselves are just as ignorant of this info as any other person. To learn any subject requires time and work, I would suggest taking the initiative and LEARNING for yourself. I am simply pointing you in the direction of info the local Imam will try and keep from you.

Taqiyya – Saying something that isn’t true as it relates to the Muslim identity.  This is a Shiite term: the Sunni counterpart is Muda’rat.

Kitman – Lying by omission. An example would be when Muslim apologists quote only a fragment of verse 5:32 (that if anyone kills “it shall be as if he had killed all mankind”) while neglecting to mention that the rest of the verse (and the next) mandate murder in undefined cases of “corruption” and “mischief.” 

Tawriya – Intentionally creating a false impression.

Muruna – ‘Blending in’ by setting aside some practices of Islam or Sharia in order to advance others.

You can find a free version of “Reliance of the Traveller” online along with more than excellent explanations from non-Muslims who are not OBLIGATED to lie to you about this topic by following this link to MAPPING SHARIA here!

Bukhari 4,53,374 Mohammed: “I give money to the Quraysh to tempt them them into remaining true to Islam, because they are new to the faith and their lives of ignorance are a short distance away.”

Ibn Ishaq 224 – A member of the Abyssinian royalty, called the Negus, became convinced of the truth of Islam. He was accused by the Christians of leaving his religion. The Negus wrote on a piece of paper,”There is no god but Allah and Mohammed is his prophet. Jesus was a Muslim, born of Mary, conceived without a father.” He then pinned the statement under his shirt over his heart. When the other Abyssinians accused the Negus of leaving Christianity and they said,”Jesus was the Son of God.” The Negus placed his hand over his heart (and the paper with the statement) and told the Christians,”I testify that Jesus was no more than this.” The Christians took him at his word and left him. When Mohammed heard this, he prayed for the Negus when he died.

Bukhari 8,73,73 Mohammed: “A Muslim who swears a false oath by the god of another religion is not obligated to fulfill that promise because he cannot be bound by a faith he does not hold.”

Bukhari 5,59,369 Mohammed asked,”Who will kill Ka’b, the enemy of Allah and Mohammed?” Bin Maslama rose and responded,”O Mohammed! Would it please you if I killed him?” Mohammed answered,”Yes.” Bin Maslama then said,”Give me permission to deceive him with lies so that my plot will succeed.” Mohammed replied,”You may speak falsely to him.”

I would also like to point out that many victims of the lies of Islam are Muslim themselves. The victims of Islam come in all shapes, genders, colors, and sizes, but in the end they are all victims of Allah and Prophet Mohamed. Perhaps the biggest lie of all, is the idea the Prophet Mohamed should be emulated……. Not a good dude!!!!!

The video below is a fine example of lying through omission. Packaging Islam for the west while slowly introducing Islam to the host culture through gradualism, Creeping Sharia. The lecture is before a Muslim audience in Kansas City’s Bartle Hall in the early 90’s. Professor Mazen Hashem, a Muslim Scholar in his own words.
