False information on online forms


AsalamuAlaykum wrh wbrk,
What is the ruling on giving fake names, phone #s etc. on online forms, to protect privacy? Especially since sites especially Islamic sites are being watched by FBI and others.


wa `alaykum salam,

Hazrat Umm Kulthoum (Prophet’s daughter) said that she had never heard the Prophet (saw) approved lying except in three cases:

1. In war
2. Among spouses – only to keep peace in the family
3. For reconciliation among people
