Fake papers for visa.

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Assalamu aleykum. I have a difficulty to go to my husband because of the visa refusal. I live in one country and he lives in another. To be together i need to get the shengen visa. Please, tell me, is it allowed in islam to make a fake paper from work, if I don’t work, but for getting visa it is essential.? Otherwise i gonna stay here, and my husband there.And i will have to wait at least one year to be with him. Jazakumullahu khairan.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salฤmu โ€˜alaykum wa-rahmatullฤhi wa-barakฤtuh.

Truthfulness and honesty are some of the cardinal principles of Islam. A Muslim should also live by those principles. ย 

Consider the following hadith,

ู…ูŽู†ู’ ุบูŽุดูŽู‘ู†ูŽุง ููŽู„ูŽูŠู’ุณูŽ ู…ูู†ูŽู‘ุงย 

โ€œWhoever deceives us, he is not from amongst us. (Muslim) 1

It is prohibited to make a fake employment letter as that constitutes lies and deception. You may consider being employed and request your employer to issue you a letter confirming your employment. The flexible terms and conditions of employment between you and the employer is an internal issue.

We make dua Allah Taโ€™ฤla unite you with your husband as soon as possible. Ameen

And Allah Taโ€™ฤla Knows Best
