When Muslims may lie

Narrated in Sahih Muslim (English version), Chapter MLXXVII, v4, p1373,
Tradition #6303:

     Humaid b. 'Abd al-Rahman b. 'Auf reported that his mother Umm Kulthum
     daughter of 'Uqba b. Abu Mu'ait, and she was one amongst the first
     emigrants who pledged allegiance to Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon
     him), as saying that she heard Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon
     him) as saying: A liar is not one who tries to bring reconciliation
     amongst people and speaks good (in order to avert dispute), or he
     conveys good.  Ibn Shihab said he did not hear that exemption was
     granted in anything what the people speak as lie but in three cases:
     in battle, for bringing reconciliation amongst persons and the
     narration of the words of the husband to wife, and the narration of
     the words of a wife to her husband (in a twisted form in order to
     bring reconciliation between them).
