APRIL FOOL.

april fools in islam

Praise be to Allaah, we praise Him and seek His help and forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allaah from the evil of our own selves and from our evil deeds. Whomsoever Allaah guides, none can lead astray, and whomsoever He sends astray, none can guide.

Lying is an evil characteristic, which all religions and systems of ethics warn against and which man’s innate common sense (fitrah) agrees that it is wrong. Those who possess chivalry and sound reason also say this.

Truthfulness is one of the pillars on which the moral survival of the world depends. It is the foundation of praiseworthy characteristics, the cornerstone of Prophethood, the result of taqwaa. Were it not for truthfulness, the rulings of all divinely-revealed laws would collapse. Acquiring the characteristic of lying is akin to shedding one’s humanity, because speaking is an exclusively human trait.

(BAREEQAH MAHMOODIYYAH, MUHAMMAD AL-KHAADIMI, 3/183)

Our purely monotheistic sharee’ah warns against lying in the Qur’aan and Sunnah, and there is consensus that it is haraam. The liar will have bad consequences in this world and in the next. According to sharee’ah, lying is not permitted except in specific cases which do not lead to loss of rights, bloodshed or slander of people’s honour, etc., but which concern saving lives, reconciling between people, or creating love between husband and wife. There is a never a day or a moment when sharee’ah permits a person to tell lies or to say whatever he wants based on lies. One of the things that have become widespread among the common people is the so called “April Fool’s Day”, where they claim that the first day of the fourth solar month is a day when lying is permitted without being subject to any shar’i guidelines. Many bad things may result from this, some of which we will mention below.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________

1) APRIL FOOL. :-

“April Fool” (in Arabic, Kidhbat Neesaan or the lies of April), the origin of this lying is not known for sure. There are differing opinions concerning that:

Some of them said that it developed from the celebrations of spring at the equinox on March 21. Some of them said that this innovation appeared in France in 1564 CE, after the introduction of a new calendar, when a person who had refused to accept the new calendar became the victim of some people who had subjected him to embarrassment and made fun of him, so he became a laughing-stock for others. Some of them said that this innovation goes back to ancient times and the pagan celebrations connected to a specific date at the beginning of spring, so this is the remnant of pagan rituals. It was said that hunting in some countries was unsuccessful during the first days of the hunt in some countries. This was the origin of these lies which are made up on the first day of April.

LE POISSON D’AVRIL.

The Europeans call “April Fool” le poisson d’avril (lit. “April fish”). The reason for this is that the sun moves from the zodiacal house of Pisces to the next house, or because the word poisson, which means fish, is a distortion of the word passion, which means suffering, “so it is a symbol of the suffering endured by Jesus (peace be upon him), according to the claims of the Christians, and they claim that this happened in the first week of April.

Some of the kuffaar call this day All Fools’ Day, as it is known to the English. That is because of the lies that they tell so that those who hear them might believe them and thus become a victim for those who are making fun of him.

The first mention of April Fool in the English language was in a magazine known as Dreck Magazine. On the second day of April in 1698 CE, this magazine mentioned that a number of people were invited to come and watch the washing of black people in the Tower of London on the morning of the first day of April.

One of the most famous incidents that happened in Europe on April 1st was when the English newspaper, the Evening Star, announced in March 1746 CE that the following day – April 1st – that there would be an parade of donkeys in Islington, in England. The people rushed to see these animals and there was a huge crowd. They continued waiting and when they got tired of waiting, they asked about when the parade would be. They not find anything, then they knew that they had come to make an exhibition of themselves, as if they were the donkeys!

‘AASIM IBN ‘ABD-ALLAAH AL-QURAWAYTI

After knowing this reality,let us make a promise to ourselves never to celebrate this day. We have to learn from the Spanish and adhere to the reality of Islam and never allow our faith to be weakened again. I say: it does not matter what the origins of April fool are. What matters more is knowing the ruling on lying on this day, which we are sure did not exist during the first and best generations of Islam. It did not come from the Muslims, but rather from their enemies.

The things that happen on April fools’ day are many. Some people have been told that their child or spouse or someone who is dear to them has died, and unable to bear this shock, they have died. Some have been told that they are being laid off, or that there has been a fire or an accident in which their family has been killed, so they suffer paralysis or heart attacks, or similar diseases. Some people have been told about their wives, that they have been seen with other men, and this has led them to kill or divorce their wives.

These are the endless stories and incidents that we hear of, all of which are lies which are forbidden in Islam and unacceptable to common sense or honest chivalry. We have seen how Islam forbids lying even in jest, and it forbids frightening a Muslim whether in seriousness or in jest, in words or in actions. This is the law of Allaah in which is wisdom and care for people’s circumstances.

2) THE PROHIBITION OF LYING. :-

Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“It is only those who believe not in the Ayaat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allaah, who fabricate falsehood, and it is they who are liars

(SURAH AN-NAHL 16 VERSE 105)

IBN KATHEER SAID :-

“Then Allaah tells us that His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) is not a fabricator or a liar, because only the most evil of people who do not believe in the signs of Allaah, the kaafirs and heretics who are known amongst the people for telling lies, tell lies about Allaah and His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). The Messenger Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was the most truthful of people, the most righteous, the most perfect in knowledge, action, faith and certain belief. He was known amongst his people for his truthfulness; none of them doubted that, to such an extent that he was known amongst them as ‘al-Ameen (the trustworthy) Muhammad.’ Hence when Heraclius, the ruler of Rome, asked Abu Sufyaan about the characteristics of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), one of the things he asked was, ‘Did you ever accuse him of lying before he said what he said?’ He said, ‘No.’ Heraclius said: ‘If he refrained from telling lies about people he would not go and tell lies about Allaah.’

(TAFSEER IBN KATHEER, 2/588)

It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that :The Messenger of Allah [SAW] said: “The signs of the hypocrite are three: When he speaks, he lies; when he makes a promise he breaks it; and when he is entrusted with something, he betrays (that trust).” (Sahih)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 6, Book 47, Hadith 5024)

Narrated Abu Huraira:The Prophet (p.b.u.h) said, “The signs of a hypocrite are three: Whenever he speaks he tells a lie; whenever he is entrusted he proves dishonest; whenever he promises he breaks his promise.”

SAHIH BUKHARI (Vol. 4, Book 51, Hadith 12)
SAHIH MUSLIM (Book 1, Hadith 112)

AL-NAWAWI SAID :-

“What the commentators and most of the scholars said – which is correct – is that this means that these characteristics are the characteristics of hypocrisy, and the one who has these characteristics resembles the hypocrites in this sense.The words of the Prophet (p.b.u.h), ‘he is a pure hypocrite’ mean that he strongly resembles the hypocrites because of these characteristics.Some of the scholars said: this is concerning one in whom these characteristics predominate; one in whom these characteristics rarely appear is not included in this. This is the favoured view concerning the meaning of this hadeeth. Imaam Abu ‘Eesa al-Tirmidhi (may Allaah be pleased with him) narrated this meaning from the scholars and said: ‘The meaning of this according to the scholars is hypocrisy in one’s actions.’”

(SHARH MUSLIM, 2/46-47)

___________________________________________________________________________________________

3) THE MOST EVIL KINDS OF LIES ARE : –

LIES TOLD ABOUT ALLAH & HIS MESSENGER (PB.U.H). :-

This is the most serious kind of lie, and the one who does this is subject to a severe warning. Some of the scholars said that the one who does this is to be denounced as a kaafir.

Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Say: ‘Verily, those who invent a lie against Allaah will never be successful’”

(SURAH YOONUS 10 VERSE 69)

Narrated ‘Ali: The Prophet(P.B.U.H) said, “Do not tell a lie against me for whoever tells a lie against me (intentionally) then he will surely enter the Hell-fire.”

SAHIH BUKHARI (Volume 1 Book #3, Hadith #106)

IBN AL-QAYYIM SAID :-

Whoever tells lies about me, let him take his place in Hell’, i.e., let him take his place in Hell where he will abide and settle; it is not like a manzil or camp where he stays for a while and then moves on.”

(TAREEQ AL-HIJRATAYN, PAGE 169)

LYING IN BUYING AND SELLING. :-

It is narrated o the authority of Abu Dharr that the Messenger of Allah (may ace he upon him) observed:Three are the (persons) with whom Allah would neither speak on the Day of Resurrection, nor would look at them nor would absolve the and there is a painful chastisement for them. The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) repeated it three times. Abu Dharr remarked: They failed and they lost; who are these persons, Messenger of Allah? Upon this he (the Holy) Prophet) observed: They are: the dragger of lower garment, the recounter of obligation the seller of goods by false oath.

SAHIH MUSLIM (Book 1, Hadith 192)

Narrated Hakim bin Hizam:Allah’s Messenger (p.b.u.h) said, “The seller and the buyer have the right to keep or return goods as long as they have not parted or till they part; and if both the parties spoke the truth and described the defects and qualities (of the goods), then they would be blessed in their transaction, and if they told lies or hid something, then the blessings of their transaction would be lost.”

SAHIH BUKHARI (Vol. 3, Book 34, Hadith 293)
SAHIH MUSLIM (Book 10, Hadith 3661)

SHAYKH AL-ISLAM IBN TAYMIYAH SAID :-

“Allaah has enjoined truthfulness and honesty, and He has forbidden lies and concealment with regard to matters which should be known and revealed to people, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said in a hadeeth whose authenticity is agreed upon: ‘The two parties involved in a transaction have the option [of cancelling it] until they part. If they are honest and truthful, their transaction will be blessed for them and if they conceal something and tell lies, the blessing of their transaction will be wiped out.’ And Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

‘O you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allaah as just witnesses; and let not the enmity and hatred of others make you avoid justice. Be just: that is nearer to piety’

(SURAH AL-MAIDAH 5 VERSE 8)

(MINHAAJ AL-SUNNAH, 1/16)

THE PROHIBITION ON LYING ABOUT VISIONS AND DREAMS. :-

This refers to when some of them claim to have seen such and such in a dream, but they are not telling the truth, then in the morning he starts to tell the people something that he did not see.

Narrated Ibn `Abbas:The Prophet (p.b.u.h) said, “Whoever claims to have seen a dream which he did not see, will be ordered to make a knot between two barley grains which he will not be able to do; and if somebody listens to the talk of some people who do not like him (to listen) or they run away from him, then molten lead will be poured into his ears on the Day of Resurrection; and whoever makes a picture, will be punished on the Day of Resurrection and will be ordered to put a soul in that picture, which he will not be able to do.

SAHIH BUKHARI (Vol. 9, Book 87, Hadith 165)

AL-MANAAWI SAID :-

“ ‘to tie two grains of barley together, but he will never be able to do it’ – because tying one to the other is not possible ordinarily. He will be punished until he does that, and he will never be able to do it. It is as if he is saying that he will be enjoined to do something that he can never do, and is being punished for it. This is a metaphor for continuous punishment… The reason why barley (sha’eer) is mentioned specifically is because dreams are connected to feelings (shu’oor); the words sha’eer (barley) and shu’oor (feelings) come from the same root in Arabic.

The punishment for that is so severe – even though lies when awake may cause more damage, because they may involve testimony that may lead to execution or a hadd punishment – because lying about a dream is a lie about Allaah, may He be exalted, for dreams are a part of Prophethood, so they come from Him, and lying about the Creator is worse than lying about created beings.

(FAYD AL-QADEER, 6/99)

THE PROHIBITION OF SPEAKING ABOUT EVERYTHING THAT ONE HEARS. :-

Ubayd Allah bin Mu’ādh al-Anbarī narrated to us, my father narrated to us; and Muhammad bin ul-Muthannā narrated to us, Abd ur-Rahman bin Mahdī both narrated to us:Shu’bah narrated to us, on authority of Khubayb bin Abd ir-Rahman, on authority of Hafs bin Āsim, on authority of Abī Hurayrah, he said, the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah upon him, said: ‘It is enough of a lie for a man to narrate everything he hears’.

SAHIH MUSLIM (Introduction, Narration 6)

With regard to the meanings of the hadeeth and reports on this topic, they discourage speaking about everything that one hears. For usually a person will hear both true things and lies, so if he were to speak of everything that he hears, he would be lying, by telling of something that did not happen. We have stated above the view of the people of truth: that lying means telling of something in a manner other than the way it happened. It is not conditional upon it being done deliberately, but its being done deliberately is a condition of it being a sin. And Allaah knows best.”

(SHARH MUSLIM, 1/75)

LYING IN JEST . :-

Some people think that it is permissible to tell lies if it is in jest. This is the excuse that they use for telling lies on April 1st or on other days. This is wrong. There is no basis for this in the pure sharee’ah. Lying is haraam whether the one who does it is joking or is serious.

Lying in jest is haraam just like other kinds of lies.

It was narrated that Ibn ‘Umar said: “The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, ‘I joke, but I speak nothing but the truth.’”

Abu Hurairah narrated:”They said: ‘O Messenger of Allah! You joke with us?’ He said: ‘Indeed I do not say except what is true.'” (Hasan)’

SUNAN TIRMIDHI (Vol. 4, Book 1, Hadith 1990)

‘Abd al-Rahmaan ibn Abi Laylaa said: the companions of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) told us that they were travelling with the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). A man among them fell asleep and some of them went and took his arrows. When the man woke up, he got alarmed (because his arrows were missing) and the people laughed. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, “What are you laughing at?” They said, “Nothing, except that we took the arrows and he got alarmed.” The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “It is not permissible for a Muslim to frighten another Muslim.”

Abdullah bin As-Sa’ib bin Yazid narrated from his father, from his grandfather who said:”The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w) said: ‘Let one of you not take his brother’s staff, neither in play nor seriousness. Whoever took his brother’s staff, then let him return it to him.”‘ (Sahih)

SUNAN TIRMIDHI (Vol. 4, Book 7, Hadith 2160)

LYING WHEN PLAYING WITH CHILDREN. :-

We must beware of lying when playing with children, because that will be written down (in the record of deeds of) the one who that.

Narrated Abdullah ibn Amir:My mother called me one day when the Messenger of Allah (p.b.u.h) was sitting in our house. She said: Come here and I shall give you something. The Messenger of Allah (p.b.u.h) asked her: What did you intend to give him? She replied: I intended to give him some dates. The Messenger of Allah (p.b.u.h) said: If you were not to give him anything, a lie would be recorded against you.

ABU DAWOOD ( Book 42, Hadith 4973)

LYING TO MAKE PEOPLE LAUGH. :-

Narrated Mu’awiyah ibn Jaydah al-Qushayri:The Messenger of Allah (p.b.u.h) said: Woe to him who tells things, speaking falsely, to make people laugh thereby. Woe to him! Woe to him!.

ABU DAWOOD ( Book 42, Hadith 4972)

Bahz bin Hakim narrated from his father, from his grandfather that Prophet (s.a.w) said:”Woe to the one who talks about something to make the people laugh, in which he lies. Woe to him! Woe to him!” (Hasan)

SUNAN TIRMIDHI (Vol. 4, Book 10, Hadith 2315)

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

4) THE PUNISHMENT FOR LYING :-

The liar is warned of destructive punishment in this world, and humiliating punishment in the Hereafter. These include:

HYPOCRISY IN THE HEART. :-

Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“So He punished them by putting hypocrisy into their hearts till the Day whereon they shall meet Him, because they broke that (covenant with Allaah) which they had promised to Him and because they used to tell lies

(SURAH AT-TAWBAH 9 VERSE 77)

‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood said: “You may know the hypocrite by three things: when he speaks, he lies; when he makes a promise, he breaks it; and when he is entrusted with something he betrays that trust.”. He said: “Recite this aayah (interpretation of the meaning):

‘And of them are some who made a covenant with Allaah (saying): “If He bestowed on us of His Bounty, we will verily, give Sadaqah (Zakaah and voluntary charity in Allaah’s Cause) and will be certainly among those who are righteous.”

Then when He gave them of His Bounty, they became niggardly [refused to pay the Sadaqah (Zakaah or voluntary charity)], and turned away, averse.

So He punished them by putting hypocrisy into their hearts till the Day whereon they shall meet Him, because they broke that (covenant with Allaah) which they had promised to Him and because they used to tell lies

(SURAH AL-TAWBAH 9 VERSE 75-77)

http://library.islamweb.net/newlibrary/display_book.php?idfrom=3524&idto=3524&bk_no=10&ID=3326

GUIDANCE TO EVILDOING & TO THE FIRE. :-

Abdullah reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying:It is obligatory for you to tell the truth, for truth leads to virtue and virtue leads to Paradise, and the man who continues to speak the truth and endeavours to tell the truth is eventually recorded as truthful with Allah, and beware of telling of a lie for telling of a lie leads to obscenity and obscenity leads to Hell-Fire, and the person who keeps telling lies and endeavours to tell a lie is recorded as a liar with Allah.

SAHIH MUSLIM (Book 32, Hadith 6309)

AL-SAN’AANI SAID :-

This hadeeth indicates that whoever continues to speak the truth, it will become a feature of his, and whoever deliberately tells lies and persists in it, it will become a feature of his. This is the same as any other good or evil characteristic, if a person persists in it, it becomes a feature of his. This hadeeth indicates how serious the matter of telling the truth is, and that it may lead a person to Paradise, and it indicates how ugly lying is and how it may lead a person to Hell. This is in addition to the consequences in this world, for the one who tells the truth will have his words accepted by people, and his testimony will be accepted by judges and he will be liked for what he says, whereas for the liar the opposite will be the case.

(SUBUL AL-SALAAM, 2/687)

HIS TESTIMONY WILL BE REJECTED. :-

IBN AL-QAYYIM SAID. :-

The reason why the testimony of the liar is rejected ,The strongest reason why testimonies, fatwas and reports may be rejected is lying, because it corrupts the very essence of the testimony, fatwa or report. It is like the testimony of a blind man concerning sighting the new moon, or the testimony of a deaf man concerning having heard the admission of someone. The lying tongue is like some faculty that is no longer working, indeed it is even worse than that, for the most evil thing a man may possess is a lying tongue.

(A’LAAM AL-MUWAQQI’EEN, 1/95)

BLACKENING OF THE FACE IN THIS WORLD & IN THE HEREAFTER . :-

Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And on the Day of Resurrection you will see those who lied against Allaah (i.e. attributed to Him sons, partners) their faces will be black

(SURAH AL-ZUMAR 39 VERSE 60)

IBN AL-QAYYIM SAID. :-

Hence on the Day of Resurrection Allaah will make blackened faces the sign of the one who told lies about Him and His Messenger. Lying has a great effect in blackening the face and covering it with a mask of shame which every truthful person will be able to see. The feature of the liar is clearly visible in the face, and everyone who has the eyes to see can see it. But Allaah will bless the truthful person with dignity and respect, so whoever sees him will respect him and love him, and He will give the liar humiliation and shame, so whoever sees him will loathe him and despise him. And Allaah is the Source of strength.

(A’LAAM AL-MUWAQQI’EEN, 1/95)

THE LIAR WILL HAVE THE FLESH OF HIS CHEEKS TORN TO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD. :-

It was narrated that Samurah ibn Jundub (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) often used to say to his companions, ‘Has anyone among you seen a dream?’ Then whoever Allaah willed would tell of his dream. One day he said to us, ‘Two (angels) came to me last night and woke me up, then they said to me, ‘Let’s go!’… so we set out and came to a man who was lying flat on his back and another man standing over his head with aniron hook, and behold, he would put the hook in one side of the man’s mouth and tear off that side of his face to the back (of the neck) and similarly tear his nose from front to back and his eye from front to back. Then he turned to the other side of the man’s face and did just as he had done with the other side. Hardly had he completed this side when the first side was restored to its normal state. Then he went back and did that all over again. I said to my two companions, ‘Subhaan Allah! Who are these two persons?’ They said to me, ‘Move on, move on!’ (Then he said, describing how the two angels explained the things that he had seen): ‘As for the man you came across, the sides of whose mouth, nostrils and eyes were being torn off from front to back, he is the symbol of the man who goes out of his house in the morning and tells so many lies that it spreads all over the world.’”

SAHIH BUKHARI (Vol. 9, Book 87, Hadith 171)

5) THE COMMENTS OF SALAF ON LYING. :-

Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood said: “A man may speak the truth and persist in doing so until there is in his heart not even room for evil the size of a needle. Or a man may tell lies and persist in doing so until there is in his heart not even room for truth the size of a needle.

6) PERMISSIBLE KINDS OF LIES. :-

Lying is permissible in three cases: war; reconciling between two disputing parties; and a husband lying to his wife or vice versa for the sake of love and harmony.

Narrated Um Kulthum bint `Uqba:That she heard Allah’s Messenger (p.b.u.h) saying, “He who makes peace between the people by inventing good information or saying good things, is not a liar.”

SAHIH BUKHARI (Vol. 3, Book 49, Hadith 857)

Asma bint Yazid narrated that the Messenger of Allah said:”it is not lawful to lie except in three cases: Something the man tells his wife to please her, to lie during war, and to lie in order to bring peace between the people.”(Sahih)

SUNAN TIRMIDHI (Vol. 4, Book 1, Hadith 1939)
