Ask an Alim



Salamun Alaikum, In western Countries Business Owners they collect Tax from their Customers but they do not pay full tax to the state Is that allowed Also Individual people they do not pay tax to government because the government uses that tax money and help Israel or for war Is that allowed? Please reply


Alaykum Salaam

No this is not allowed as it constitutes dishonesty that is unbecoming of a Muslim

Similarly when asked in general about masking one’s financial and other details from the government, Agha Sistanis’s ruling is as below:

Q198: Is it permissible for a Muslim to provide incorrect information to government agencies in Europe to obtain through legal channels privileges and financial or non-financial facilities?

A: That is not permissible for it constitutes lying and for whatever has been mentioned, there is no justification for that.

Kind regards
