Taking an oath not to speak to someone

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I asked my husband to be for a face wash which he didn’t get and I swore upon Allah that I won’t talk to him, do I have to give kaffarah?


A: For a woman to talk casually to a man before marriage is impermissible. You may break your oath after marriage and give the kaffaarah.

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