Taking an oath to become a disbeliever if one does a certain action

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I would like to ask I made an oath that if I do such an such then I am a disbeliever after I marry my fiance who I really want to marry. When I made that oath I felt like I meant it when I said I will be a disbeliever. If I marry my fiance does this mean that I will be a disbeliever? I regret what I said and I am now worried. What should I do, please help me.


A: Don’t take these types of stupid oaths. This is all ignorance and foolishness.

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