Question

I will be taking a second wife ishaallah. I applied for a fiancee' visa so we could marry in the US. That was denied.as well as an immigrant visa. Is it haraam to use another person's id for her to enter the country?

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

I think that it is not permissible to deceive or tell lies in such cases when the first request has been refused. Submit a second application and state your reasons. Using someone else’s passport or ID, or someone else’s visa – we think that this involves some measure of lying or deception. So he should apply again until he gets what he has requested.
