Q: I have heard that if a person takes an oath that “If I do this or do not do this, I will become a Kafir forever”. The person becomes a kafir if he or she swore the oath with the belief that he or she would adopt kufr upon its non-fulfillment. Is this true? I would be very grateful if you could please provide a detailed answer for my satisfaction.
A: Don’t ever resort to such foolish and stupid things. Beg and ask Allah’s forgiveness. Respect your imaan and appreciate it.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
