Using “ngl” in chats

Fatwaa ID: 1993

Also one more question.

In a ahadith close to narration, a Believer can be a coward, miser. But believers can’t lie. So how about using “not gonna lie-ngl”
Can believers use this in chats?
Do scholars have any exceptions to use such?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

“Ngl” means “not gonna lie”. This is used to emphasize that one is truthful in his statement and that he is not lying. There is no problem in using “ngl” in chats. This is not a form of lying. Someone can use this even though he always speaks the truth.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
