I tripped and hurt someone by accident. He demanded loads of money or jail. In this situation or in any general situation,when you get in trouble is it OK to tell a lie in Islam? If you won't you and your family will be in trouble.

  • Seeking an Islamic quote or references relates to bad situations when lying seems the right thing to do.Not seeking any advice about my situation.
