Is Allah Most High Able To Lie?

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani


Is Allah Most High able to lie?

I ask for forgiveness for the question if it is inappropriate.


I hope you’re doing well, insha’Allah.

Even entertaining such questions is unbecoming of the believer’s reverence (ta‘dhim), awe, and adab with Allah.

Allah is Absolutely Perfect, exalted, and transcendent beyond all limitations and imperfections.
