“al-Taqiyya: deception; the Islamic word for concealing or disguising one’s beliefs, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions, and/or strategies.”

“Muslim scholars teach that Muslims should generally be truthful to each other, unless the purpose of lying is to “smooth over differences.”

“There are two forms of lying to non-believers that are permitted under certain circumstances, taqiyya and kitman. These circumstances are typically those that advance the cause Islam – in some cases by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them.”


Regarding the Islamic religion, is the above true or not true?

If a person following Islamic faith answers this question, why should I believe them when their religion permits them to deceive and lie to non-believers?

Religion: Mankind’s long standing and most profound human ignorance.
