And (remember) when your Lord said to the angels: “Verily, I am going to place (mankind) generations after generations on earth.” They said: “Will You place therein those who will make mischief therein and shed blood, - while we glorify You with praises and thanks (Exalted be You above all that they associate with You as partners) and sanctify You?” Allah said: “I know that which you do not know.”
Surah Baqarah | 30
"And I have prepared you for Myself."
Surah Taha | 41
"Surely to Allah we belong and to Him shall we return."Surah Baqarah | Verse 156
April fools is Haram. Whatever your intention is, it’s still a lie so fear Allah. This is an act hated by Allah, don’t participate in it and tell others not to lie. Don’t wreck your hereafter because of a stupid lie.
The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Woe to the one who tells lies to make people laugh, woe to him.”
- (Narrated by Abu Dawood).
To those who think telling a lie as a joke or even a prank is ok, then you should read this hadith:
‘Abd al-Rahman ibn Abi Laylaa said: the companions of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) told us that they were traveling with the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). A man among them fell asleep and some of them went and took his arrows. When the man woke up, he got alarmed (because his arrows were missing) and the people laughed. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “What are you laughing at?” They said, “Nothing, except that we took the arrows and he got alarmed.” The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “It is not permissible for a Muslim to frighten another Muslim.”
(Narrated by Abu Dawood, 5004; Ahmad, 22555 – this version narrated by Ahmad)
