Speaking lies

Q: Married couples go and live abroad. The husband legally divorces his wives and makes her live like a single wife, divorcee or as a widow in order to get monetary assistance from the government. Is this permissible?


A: It is not the way of a Muslim to speak lies.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
