Is it permissible to declare false earnings?

Q: It is permissible to show false earnings to get the Islamic home finance?

Also will the rental money earned from such property be halal?


A: Declaring false earning is not permissible as it is prohibited to deceive others. The prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Whoever deceived us is not one of us”. [Muslim]

Although the contract will still be valid and any income earned through its rental will also be lawful.
