Delay after Promising

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za

Q: I promised Allah if I pass my driving test I will R10 to a poor man. Can I give this money to a poor Muslim man or can I give it to any poor man if I don’t find a needy Muslim guy? What if I don’t give that money on the some day and pay it after a long time?

A: Although the fulfilment of the payment has been delayed, it still has to be paid. It is best to give it to a poor Muslim. If you cannot find a poor Muslim in your area, send the money to another locality wherein there is a poor Muslim.
And Allah Ta’aala knows best.
