1. I made an intention that if there is a certain outcome I will give money in Sadaqah, the outcome occurred, is it permissible to use the money to pay for the postage of clothes parcel to relatives in India?
2. If it isn’t permissible where can I give the Sadaqah money (what can the Sadaqah money be used for)?
A: If you had not verbally made a vow, but merely made the intention in your heart, then it will not constitute a vow and hence you will not have to fulfil it.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
