Taking oaths unnecessarily

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My question is sometimes I intentionally or sometime forced by my inner feeling I say “Allah ki kasam” if I do this act (example: if I eat crisps) Allah should take my soul away / kill me. I am worried because I keep on taking these kind of oaths. Will I die or what would happen to me. I want to come out of this problem of frequently taking oaths.

Taking oaths unnecessarily

A: These oaths are baseless. Refrain from uttering these types of statements.

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