Bad Deeds

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
Asallamu Alaikum…
Sometimes I have a problem with not being straight with people when they ask me questions. I am deeply worried about my state because a Muslim man approached me in my local town asking if I’m a new Muslim, (I am white, with Hijab), I replied that I have been for 5 years. He then asked if I was married, I told him that I’m not, he then asked for my phone number. Now, rather than just tell him straight that I wasn’t really interested, I gave him a false number instead. I have absolutely no Idea why I just didn’t tell him the truth rather than lying to him. Will I be accountable for this on the day of judgement because I lied to him, will he be able to take some of my good deeds away from me because of this?
I wish I could rewind the scenario again and be honest, I just didn’t want to make him embarrassed.

Answer
Assalamu’alaikum w.w.

Though under the circumstances you were excused for
giving the wrong number, however, in future you should
be straightforward with ‘sick’ people like the one you
met and tell them them to fear Allah and abstain from
such immodest and Haraam actions. If they persist, you
should report the incident to the police.

Furthermore, the incident also demonstrates the need
to wear the Niqaab (face covering) as there is no
shortage of ‘sick’ people around. This is how Allah
(SWT) describes them as people with diseased hearts,
i.e. the disease of uncontrollable lust and haraam
desires.

Allah (SWT) Knows Best.
