Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taimiyyah said, “Lying against an individual is completely forbidden, regardless if he is a Muslim or a disbeliever or a transgressor (a innovator or anot open major sinner).
However fabricating a lie against the believer is (mores) everer. In spite of all forms of lying on someone being forbidden, it is permissible to resort to Ma’aareedh (speech that has an apparent meaning that can be different than the intended meaning) during times of legitimate necessity” Ref: Majmoo’ur-rasaa’il wal masaa’il 5/105 via Rabee.net
Shaykh Rabee said, “It is impermissible to lie against disbelievers or innovators or anyone.
We clarify their misguidance, we quote it literally from their books or other sources then we discuss it scholastically, that is what we do.
Also we ask Allaah to guide the Salafis to truthfulness and justness in statements and actions, we see it absolutely impermissible for a Muslim to fabricate a lie against a Muslim or a disbeliever, and we seek refuge in Allaah (from lying).” Ref: Cassette: Fearing Allah And Truthfulness
