Story of Laila bint Ajmaa

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My question is, is there any story in the history of Islam about laila bint ajmaa that she swore that if her slave don’t divorce his wife then she will be yahoodi or esayi and her wealth will be free for Allah and all her slaves will be free. After this she went to Umme Aaisha and asked her about this. Aaisha (Radiyallahu Anha) replied that do kaffara of yamin and then she went to Ibn Umar and he also reprimanded her that fear Allah and do kaffara of yamin. Is this story valid or saheeh or hassan or daeef?


A: We have not come across this. This ruling is in accordance to the Hanafi mazhab.

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