Breaking the qasam in an unconscious state

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: What is the ruling for the one who was habitual of having pleasure with oneself by crossing legs but later made sincere tauba and qasam that person will not do it again? After a long time while the person was sleeping, the person felt that crossing legs like that person used to do long time ago then immediately the person wakes up and controlled that action. Does the qasam break since it wasnt done in unconscious state?


A: If this was done while he was not conscious then his qasam will not break.

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