Meaning 'to prevent' or 'guard against' . This word is often misunderstood as lying or deceiving non Muslims for the benefit of Muslims. However lying in Islam is such a serious sin, it is said to be a greater offense than missing the 5 daily prayers,which is the most important pillar in islam. Taqiyya is one of the most misrepresented words, a bit like 'jihad' that many people still believe means holy war, when actually means to struggle. Also note: be aware of websites like thereligionofpeace,who disguise as Islamic representatives,but who are actually anti-muslim as their main objective is to misguid the masses.
