Little white lies explained by Shaykh Fawzan

Question:

The questioner asks O Shaykh; is there such thing as white lies and black lies?

Shaykh Fawzan:

All lies are black, there are no white lies; all of them are black and they are not permissible.

Except in the three situations mentioned by the Prophet, prayers and peace are upon him:Lying in order to make peace between

people who have had a falling out; orthe spouses lying to each other in an effort to mend the relationship; orlying in an effort to escape the oppressor, in order to escape from the oppressor.

And this is called: Interpretation. Outside of this, lying is haraam; all of them. And lying is from the major sins and it is not permissible.
