Participating In April Fool’s Day – Shaykh Al-Fawzaan And Shaykh Al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah

Shaykh Al-Fawzaan said, “Lying is not permissible at any time and it is not permissible to imitate the kuffaar on this day [April Fool’s Day] any other day because the Prophet said ”Whoever imitates a people is like them.” Ref: Fataawa Fawzaan and Al’Shaqaa’iq magizine no.20

The Prophet said ”Whoever imitates a people is like them.” (Narrated by Abu Dawood, 3512; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani)

Ibn Taymiyyah said about this hadeeth, “This at the very least indicates that it is haraam to imitate them, although the apparent meaning is that the one who imitates them is a kaafir (disbeliever).” Ref: Iqtida al-Siraat al-Mustaqeem, 1/237.
