Fatwa No: 446389

Question

Assalamualikum, would it be lying if i said i have read and accepted the terms and services when i haven't

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

Lying, as mentioned by the scholars, is to tell about something other than what it is [in reality].

Lying is dispraised and reprehensible unless there is a necessity or a dire need.

Whoever says that he read something, and he did not read it, has lied.

Allah Knows best.
