Permitted to Lie for Islam (Taqiyya and Kitman)    Bookmark and Share  

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.

Some Qur'an, etc. references:
source: ... t/resources/texts/muslim/

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..."

The book "The spirit of Islam," by the Muslim scholar, Afif A. Tabbarah was written to promote Islam. On page 247, Tabbarah stated: "Lying is not always bad, to be sure; there are times when telling a lie is more profitable and better for the general welfare, and for the settlement of conciliation among people, than telling the truth. To this effect, the Prophet says: 'He is not a false person who (through lies) settles conciliation among people, supports good or says what is good."

Taqiyyah goes beyond mere lying for propaganda purposes. The word comes from a root meaning "to guard against, to keep (oneself)". It thus also includes dissimulation by the Muslim to give the appearance of not being religious, so as not to arouse suspicion. In this vein, a Muslim, if necessary, may eat pork, drink alcohol, and even verbally deny the Islamic faith, as long as he does not "mean it in his heart". If the end result of the lie is perceived by the Muslim to be good for Islam or useful to bringing someone to "submission" to Allah or to be defeted in a "holy war"-battle, then the lie can be sanctioned through taqiyyah.

An example of Kitman 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.”

Though not called Taqiyyah by name, Muhammad clearly used deception when he signed a 10-year treaty with the Meccans that allowed him access to their city while he secretly prepared his own forces for a takeover. The unsuspecting residents were conquered in easy fashion after he broke the treaty two years later, and many leaders of the city who had trusted him at his word were executed. (See Sura (9:3) – (“…Allah and His Messenger are free from liability to the idolaters…”)

Another example is when Muhammad tricked the leader of an opposing tribe with whom he was not at war to leave his town on the pretext of meeting with him at Medina. Usayr ibn Zarim traveled with thirty men who were unarmed because of Muhammad’s guarantee of safety. They were easily massacred by the prophet’s Muslim assassins.

The 9/11 hijackers practiced deception by going into bars and drinking alcohol, thus throwing off potential suspicion that they were fundamentalists plotting jihad.

Al-Taqiyya is with tongue only; not the heart.

A believer can make any statement as long as "the heart is comfortable". The 9/11 terrorists lived and visited in the United States for two years before the 9/11 attacks. How did they acculturate? By the use of taqiyyah. Meaning: I hate you but I smile at you-in public.

The circumstances by which Muhammad allowed a believer to lie are limited to those that either advance the cause of Islam or enable a Muslim to avoid harm to his well-being (and presumably that of other Muslims as well). Although this should be kept very much in mind when dealing with matters of global security, such as Iran’s nuclear intentions, it is not grounds for assuming that the Muslim one might personally encounter on the street or in the workplace is any less honest than anyone else.

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.

The near absence of Qur’anic verse and reliable Hadith that encourage truthfulness is somewhat surprising, given that many Muslims are convinced that their religion teaches honesty. In fact, it's because of this ingrained belief that most Muslims are quite honest. Without knowing it, they are decived by their own religion.

The truth is that many Muslims celebrate and support successful terrorism against Infidels and infidel nations. They celebrate Nazy-Germany's execution of Jews, etc, etc... But they are of course not telling any non-Muslims about this.

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.
