Breaking an impermissible oath

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: One of my friends made a promise herself that ‘wallahi I ‘ll never ask dua for my sister”. Now she feels it’s wrong. She likes to break her promise now. Can she break it? Is there any kaffara?


A: Yes this oath is not permissible. She should break this oath and give the kafaarah for breaking the oath.

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