Marriage and Breastfeeding / The wife lying to her husband

The wife lying to her husband

I often pick fights with my husband, which happens because of my hard temper. However, I always try to control myself but I have just decided to repent and fulfill my duties towards him, all praise is due to Allah alone for that. But, sometimes, when we have a fight, I pretend that I love him and so I treat him kindly just to obey Allah, the Most High, all the while, I do not love him during those moments. Is it forbidden to lie to my husband about my feelings towards him? I have another question about my mother who works in a school that pays her a salary from which she spends on her mother and brother who are poor and in debts. However, she does all that without the knowledge of her husband (my father) and every time he asks her about her salary, she lies about where she spent it. Is this forbidden? Furthermore, she asks me to lie to my father in similar matters such as asking me to tell my father that I am carving for a particular type of food and so I give him the money to buy it from me and bring to my house while in reality the money is my mother’s and the food is bought for her mother (my grandmother). Is this forbidden? May Allah reward you and I thank you for always answering our questions promptly.

All praise is due to Allah alone, and may the Salah and Salam of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and his companions. To answer your question, we say while seeking all the success from Allah:   If the wife lies to her husband in order to bring about reconciliation, then it is permissible because the Prophet (may the Salah and Salam of Allah) said: “Whoever lies to reconcile between people, is not a liar” Reported by al-Bukhari and Muslim. Al-Zuhri, one of the narrators of the hadith, said: “I did not hear of any concession being granted concerning anything that people call lies except in three cases: War, reconciling among people, and what a man says to his wife or a woman says to her husband.”
