Muhammad said: "Lying is wrong, *except in three things: the lie of a man to his wife to make her content with him; a lie to an enemy, for **war is deception; or a lie to settle trouble between people" (Ahmad, 6.459. H).

*Islam is the only religion that implies in it's scriptures that it's ever permissible to lie.

**any non Muslim land is considered Dar ul Harb a land of war

The name of this concept is taqiyya.
