Islam’s Doctrines of Deception

Today I want to talk about the Islamic teaching about deception. There are four different doctrines in Islam that make it obligatory for Muslims to deceive the non-Muslims if it advances the cause of Islam.

The most well known of the four is Takiyya. There is also Tawriya, Kitman, and Muruna. As we look at these doctrines you will find that there is a overlap between them, but there are some finer differences between them.

Al Takiyya

This literally means to defend one’s identity. Muhammad taught that if one is captured by the enemy, and they demand that he renounce his faith in Islam and Allah, he is permitted t lie to his captors as long as he does not do it with belief. In other words, one can renounce his faith in Islam to save his life.

There are some other finer points in this. Here is what the Sharia Law Book has to say on this:

ROT – R8.2
“When it is possible to achieve an aim by lying but not by telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible, and lying is obligatory if the goal is obligatory.”

This is from the Reliance of the Traveller, the most accepted source of teaching on Sharia. When we simply quote the Qur’an, we are often accused of taking it out of context, but when we quote from this book they can’t say that the Islamic scholars are taking them out of context.

The  principle laid down under Takiyya is that you have a goal that is permissible and obligatory under Islam, and, if you can achieve it without lying, then don’t lie, If, however, you must lie to achieve the goal, it is permissible to lie, and even obligatory.

Al Tawriya

This is concealing or creative lying. When a Muslim tells you that Islam means peace, the goal of Islam is peace when all are submitted to Allah, but Islam does not mean peace. Islam means submission or surrender. When a person is fully submitted to Islam he will know peace.

ROT – O19.1 and 19.5
It is OK to break the intent of the oath as long as you don’t break the letter of the oath.


This is deception by only telling only part of the truth. This is very close to Al Tawriya. Here are some examples:

  • Jihad is personal struggle of evil in our life.
  • Quoting Abrogated Verses

The following verses are abrogated by later revelations.

“There is no compulsion in religion” Surah 2:256

“Fight those who believe not” Surah 9:29

These are done away with by verses that say things like “fight them that believe not.”

Muslims who quote the above mentioned verses may not even be aware that they have been abrogates. Many Muslims are not real students of Islam and only know what their imams have told them.


This means deception by being flexible or balanced. it is the blending with the lifestyle of the enemy or the surroundings, if the goal is to bring that society into Islam. This is part of the doctrine of Hijrah, where they immigrate into non-Muslim countries with the intention of growing in number and strength to overcome them and bring in Sharia Law. You can be a kind of secret agent and deceive.

When those who came to attack on 9/11, they dressed like us, lived like us, etc. to deceive us. There end goal was to hit America hard in jihad.

There you have the four doctrines of deceit used by Islam to fool non-believers into believing that they are not what they really are. Their goal is to take over the world for Islam, and they will do or say anything to put us to sleep so we won’t oppose them.
