Actually, you are demonstrating your limited cognition about Islam. Let me clarify this for you; Islam forbids lying in all forms and the Quran says clearly that: "Only those who do not believe in ALLAH's verses lie"

But tell me what would you do if you were captured by your enemy in a war and they asked to tell me the secrets of your folks?

Or what would you say if a crimimal asked how much you had in your pocket or credit card?

Well, the Takiya doctrine is largely taught by Shia, but the mainstream Sunna rejects it totally. Hence, lying for good cause to prevent a war, to prevent divore or killing or anything is permitted in Islam for it is humane. I hope that helps. Folk, stop labelling Islam. Islam is just a religion of peace as it is clear from its name. Islam is the only religion that is named after a person (christ) or a thing or a hero( Budha) or a tribe.
