Why April Fool's Day Is Haraam in Islam (Complete Answer)

Allah (Subhan Wa Tal'aa) strictly forbids lying at all times but Allah (Subhan Wa Tal'aa) specifically reproached and reprimanded the individual who lies in order to make people laugh and if you look at the society today, in our gatherings, you see it all the time, where people sit down and throw out jokes but they're lying and say: ''It's only a Joke'' RELAX ''Let us have a laugh'', not knowing Allah (Subhan Wa Tal'aa) warned us against this.

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) says: ''WOE BE ON HIM WHO SPEAKS A LIE TO MAKE PEOPLE LAUGH''. My dear brothers and sisters the gravity of this sin is extremely severe, understand this my dear brothers and sisters. It is absolutely Haram and to speak and lie is a major sin even when you're joking.

Did you understand this, you are not allowed to joke, it is haraam to do this. You are allowed to joke because Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) used to have a Humor, He (pbuh) would play, He (pbuh) joke around with his companions, with the little children but as He (pbuh) said in an authentic narration that ''I ONLY SPEAK THAT WHICH IS TRUE'', so the condition of joking around, it must be in truth.

You are not allowed to sit down amongst the people and say: Let us have a few laugh, you know, creating/making something up or this nonsense. You say: Its only a joke, (Astagfirullah) people take appreciation in this and they encourage this decetful lies, Say: "Its Only Amusement Innocent Sort Of Entertainment'' and they have even made specific days for this ugly practice.

You pinch punch your friend on the first day of April and its a April Fools day (Astagfirullah). On the first of April you are lying and mocking and jokes and this and that, all in the name of jokes and laughter and amusement. IT'S HARAAM. Understand this my dear brothers and sisters. This is not acceptable in Islam.

You are not allowed to speak a lie in order to make people laugh, do you understand this brothers and sisters? Do you understand the gravity of lying? Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) Says: ''WOE TO HIM''. Don't you think that's a severe sort of warning. It's like, in another word ''HELL TO YOU'' so you gotta be very careful.

People are different my dear brothers and sisters and please understand this, some people can accept things while others cannot, fight occurs, problems occur, destruction occurs from this Tounge so don't says it's only a joke, it's a joke to you but not to him or her so don't take this lightly.

My job is to convey the message and giving Hidayah (Guidance) is in Allah's hands. (May Allah protect us from this evil act) Ameen.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so


It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy


Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
