Lying in Islam

[HT Muslim Fact]

Muslims lie not because they are liars by nature but by choice. Systematic lying as a religious policy is deadly, and if our politicians do not understand this, thousands could die.

Muslims lie when it is in their interest to do so and “Allah” will not hold them accountable for lying when it is beneficial to the cause of Islam. They can lie without any guilt or fear of accountability or retribution. A lie in the defense of Islam is approved even applauded in their “holy” books.

Muslims are permitted to lie: (1) to save their lives, (2) to reconcile a husband and wife, (3) to persuade a woman into a bedroom and (4) to facilitate one on his journey. Muslims are even permitted to disavow Islam and Mohammed if it is not a genuine heart-felt rejection. Muslims will tell you that concealment of a truth is not an abandonment of that truth if it benefits Islam.

This practice of lying to protect the Islamic faith is called Al Taqyya and its mentioned in the Koran as well as early Islamic texts.

“[H]e who keeps secrets shall soon attain his objectives … All War is a ruse” and “Let not the believers take for friends or helpers unbelievers rather than believers; if any do that, they shall have no relation left with Allah except by way of precaution … [taqiyya] that ye may guard yourselves. -Koran 3:28 and 40.28, emphasis added

It’s hard to have a productive conversation with someone who holds a worldview that permits them to be less than honest. It is also hard to discuss Islam with others, like moral relativists and naturalists, who insist on parroting lies given by Muslims. Like the popular one of Islam being a religion of peace1.

  1. Islam is a religion of peace, but that peace is predicated on all countries submitting to Sharia law []
