Taking a false oath

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: On the demand of my mother in law, I had to give 10 tolas of gold before marriage but I arranged for 7 tola and for rest, I was not financially strong so I made artificial gold bangles so that our marriage should not be affected. At that time I thought of making real gold when I will be able to make it.

Now our marriage has been done and its been 5 months and now her mother got to know that the bangles are artifical. So can I take false oath to save our marriage? Or what should I do? 


A: If you take a false oath then make istighfaar for it.

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