Breaking a qasam

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have a question. I’m recently divorced as my wife cheated on me with my own brother. Question I have is one day I was caught by my mum saying I love you to a girl and that we will sleep together. This was after my divorce. My mom was very upset and crying a lot so I didn’t understand what to do, now she was tense I was tense and crying trying to calm her down. She then ask me to take kasam on her saying I will not look at any other girls fall in love or have sexual intercourse. We are humans and especially I know I will end up breaking the kasam. Is that kasam valid and if I do break it intentionally then what can be done to take the kasam off completely? Also once a kasam is broken is it no longer valid?


A: Remain firm on your qasam. The day you have broken your qasam then you may refer the question.

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