1st April - a day when people lie, play jokes and mock in the name of entertainment. This ugly practice of lying and deceiving,which is considered to be merely a
humor, is known to have caused great harm to many...! Still this dishonest tradition is not only practiced among the common masses,but also newspapers and magazines
participate in it by publishing false news
and untrue stories! Much is said about the origin of this
practice, however what concerns the most to the Muslims is that it is a
tradition which directly CONTRADICTS the teachings and morals of Islam. True belief in Allah and the Day of
Judgment implies that the person is truthful in his speech - if he truly believes
that Allah Hears and Sees everything he does, and a Day will come when he will
be held accountable for his actions, then he will not lie...

The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) said,"Let he, who truly
believes in Allah and the Last Day speak good or be silent."[Saheeh al-Bukhari]

Eh, I never was much for April Fool's, or Friday the 13th. They just seem so... dumb

Abd al-Rahman Ibn Abi Laylaa said: "The companions of the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) told us that they were traveling with the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam).

A man among them fell asleep and some of them went and took his arrows. When the man woke up, he got alarmed (because his arrows were missing) and the people laughed. The Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) said: "What are you laughing at?"

They said, "Nothing, except that we took the arrows and he got alarmed." The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) said: "It is not permissible for a Muslim to frighten another Muslim." [Abu Dawood (5004) and Musnad Ahmad.]

He (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) described the severe punishments for the liars and said: "I saw (in a dream), two men came to me.

They said, 'The person, the one whose cheek you saw being torn away (from the mouth to the ear) was a liar and used to tell lies and the people would report those lies on his authority till they spread all over the world. So he will be punished like that till the Day of Resurrection.'" [Saheeh al-Bukharee (vol. 8, no: 118)]

May Allah protect us from indulging ourselves in such dishonest activities and may He give us the strength to withstand such practices when they tend to infect our Muslim Society. Ameen!
