Sending one’s daughter for Qur’an lessons

Q: I asked one Imaam saheb to start the quran e paak for my 5 year old daughter and he was ready to do it at his residence, but when I told my wife
she said that let her continue at our neighbour’s because she is already reading it there. I am very much embarrassed because I already promised molvi saheb that I will send her. I am feeling regret and sinful if I don’t send her. Should I explain to hafiz sahab about this or I have to fulfil my promise and send her  any way? Is this a sinful Act. Because a Muslim has to fulfil his Promise in any circumstances. Please advice me on this.


A: If your daughter is getting the required attention then you do not have to send her to the Moulana and it will not be breaking the promise. It was just an oversight. You can explain to him that it is was an oversight and you did not realise what you were talking about.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
