Question: In some foreign countries – kaafir countries – there is the well-known custom of April Fool, 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?
Answer: Lying is not permissible at all, at any time. And it is not permissible to imitate the kuffaar and to be like them, on this day or on any other, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever imitates a people is one of them.”
[From the fatwaas of Shaykh Saalih Fawzaan in al-Shaqaa’iq magazine, no. 32, Safar]
“Make things easy and do not make things difficult. Give glad tidings and do not repel people..”
