Salaam Osama is it permissible to lie about being engaged/married etc to put off a guy?


Wa alykum as-salaam,

It is permissible to tell white lies, like if your mom says “is the food good?” and you tell her it is, even if it isn’t, so it would make sense that this would also be permissible.

I cannot imagine how annoying this must be, I recently saw a sister who was constantly saying no, and this fellow said “I’ll wait 2 years for you” which might sound awesome in a Nicholas Sparks novel, but not in real life.

Muslim bros feelings of entitlement simply because they decided to ask for you sisters is my new pet peeve, ps.

In order for a man to respect a woman’s rejection, she must put herself under property of another man which is sad. Some men won’t stop unless you say “I have a boyfriend, I’m married”. In that case he respects the man.

"‎Prophet Muhammad ﷺ married a women older, richer and more successful than him. This is the biggest nightmare for most Muslim men now."

I was speaking to a friend in Gaza and he told me that his little cousin is writing her name all over her body with her markers, just in case she gets blown up and no one can identify her. She is 11 years old. 11. The psychological pain and trauma the Palestinian children go through is absolutely repulsive.

“Haram love is just like salty water, no matter how much you drink from it, it will never quench your thirst. On the contrary, it will increase it

But Halal love will not only quench you, but it will also refresh you.Halal love is just like fresh water,it is full of affection, peace and mercy.”

"As soon as we accept that everything a man has and does is better, all that follows is a knee-jerk reaction: if men have it, we want it too. If men pray in the front rows, we assume this is better, so we want to pray in the front rows too. If men lead prayer, we assume the imam is closer to God, so we want to lead prayer too."

In which sometimes it’s not always the case. This is why we should not accept misogyny

"لا تثقي في رجل وعدك بالشّمس والقمر ..
فالرّجلُ الذي يُبالغُ في الوعود .. يبالغُ في كُلّ شيء .. حتّى الخذلان
Don’t trust a man who promised you the moon and the sun. Because the man who exaggerates his promises, exaggerates in everything, even in cheating."
