Will i be sinful for not fulfilling my vow?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Fatwaa.com

So i made vow of doing 1000 sajda e shukar when i will get pregnant.. And Alhmdulillah my dua was accepted, but 1 of my friend told me its bidah to do such vow so i just repented for that. But now i am trying for my second pregnancy from long time but its not happening so my question is it delaying because i didn’t fulfill my vow, and can i do that 1000 sajood now? N will i be sinful for not fulfilling my vow for long time.
Kindly reply.
JazakaAllahu khair.



Wa ʿAlaykumus Salām Wa Raḥmatullāhi Wa Barakātuh,

It is not a Bidʿah to make such a vow unless one holds the belief that such a practice is a ruling set out by the Sharīʿah.

The vow that you have taken is binding upon you, however, it cannot be said with certainty that it is the reason for not being able to fall pregnant, as pregnancies only occur with the permission of Allāh ﷻ and no one except Him would know the answer to such.

We advise that you fulfil your vow as soon as possible, as delaying it without any valid reason would be problematic.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
