Fatwa By Shaykh Muqbil Ibn Haadi: The Islamic Ruling on Travelling With A Fake Passport: Translated by Taalib Tyson Taken From Tohfatul Mojeeb

Question: Shaykh may Allah grant you success; please tell us what the Islamic ruling on enteringAmericawith a fake passport?

Answer: Regarding your question then my answer is brief; entering America with a fake passport is lying or a form of deception!

Such an act would only be allowed under necessity, duress, so we say if this is your case you would use these terms, if your father’s name is Abdur Rahmaan and your grandfather’s name is Abdul Lateef, you would in that case say, my name is Abdula Ibn Abdur Rahmaan Ibn Abdul Lateef.

Why we say this is because you are Abdula, a slave of Allah aren’t you? And your father is Abdur Rahmaan isn’t he? And your grandfather is Abdul Lateef isn’t he? So, based upon this (and) under these circumstances, which is duress, one is allowed to say what we have just stated.

So to sum up, he does not say if they ask him, what is your name Abdula, no! Rather he says my name is Abdula Ibn Abdur Rahmaan Ibn Abdul Lateef and Allah grants success.
