QUESTION:

I recently heard that fatwas exists from some prominent Mujtahids stating
that it is permissible to cheat on taxes (and indeed even to break laws)
instituted by non-Muslim governments.

Can anyone provide references and/or clarification about this?


ANSWER:

No such fatwas have come to my knowledge.  Contrary to that, we have been
exhorted by Shariah to -

1. respect and follow the laws of the country we live in,

2. accept that non-Muslims have the same right of proprietership and
discretion over their properties, as Muslims.
