“April Fools Day” – Shaykh Saalih Fawzaan [hafidhahullaah]

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

فَاجْتَنِبُوا الرِّجْسَ مِنَ الْأَوْثَانِ وَاجْتَنِبُوا قَوْلَ الزُّورِ

..So shun the abomination (worshipping) of idol, and shun lying speech (false statements). 22:30

All praise is for Allaah, Lord of all the Worlds, who ordered us to follow His Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and to call to His Way, and may Allaah send praises and blessings of peace upon our Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), and upon his family, his Companions, and those who truly follow them until the Day of Judgment.

كذبة إبريل

يشتهر بين بعض الناس في الخارج – الدول الكافرة – كذبة إبريل في أول يوم من شهر إبريل الميلادي ويقلدهم بعض المسلمين في ذلك حيث يرون جواز الكذب في هذا اليوم .. كيف ترون هذا الاعتقاد وهذا التقليد ؟.

الحمد لله

الكذب لا يجوز مطلقاً في كل الأوقات ، ولا يجوز تقليد الكفار والتشبه بهم في هذا وغيره لقول النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم : ( من تشبه بقوم فهو منهم ) .

وللمزيد يراجع مقال كذبة إبريل الموجود في قسم مقالات وكتب.

من فتاوى الشيخ صالح الفوزان لمجلة الشقائق العدد 32 لشهر صفر.

April Fools

Q. In some foreign countries – kafir (non-Muslim) countries – there is the well-known custom of April Fools, which happens of the first day of April. Some Muslims are imitating them in this, thinking that it is permissible to tell lies on this day… what is your opinion on this belief and on this custom?

A. Praise be to Allah.

Lying is not permissible at all, at any time. And it is not permissible to imitate the kuffar (non-Muslims) and to be like them, on this day or on any other, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said : “Whoever imitates a people is one of them.”

And Allah knows best.

وَمَن يُشَاقِقِ الرَّسُولَ مِن بَعْدِ مَا تَبَيَّنَ لَهُ الْهُدَىٰ وَيَتَّبِعْ غَيْرَ سَبِيلِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ نُوَلِّهِ مَا تَوَلَّىٰ وَنُصْلِهِ جَهَنَّمَ ۖ وَسَاءَتْ مَصِيرًا

“And whosoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger Muhammad (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) after the right path has been shown clearly to him, and follow other than the believers way, We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in the hell -what an evil destination (4 : 115)
