Circulating incorrect messages

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I received a message in which Qasam is given to me to send this kalma (Awal Kalma which was written in Roman English) to 20 persons

1. I read the message considering that the sender has described me about his Qasam and after reading I understood that this Qasam was given to me.Then answer me that it will be Qasam by me and or not because I have understand it later.

2. If after understanding message I read message three times then it will be three Qasams and I have to send message to 60 persons or to only 20 persons?

3. Is it compulsory to forward that message or I can send Awal Kalma in Arabic text to fulfill my Qasam?


A: These types of messages do not conform with Islamic ethos. Hence, you should stop this person from circulating this type of qasams and messages.

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