Q: How do I go about in carrying out my vow? I made a vow that if I find my lost item, I will give a certain amount of money in sadaqah.
Alhumdulillah with the grace of Allah I have found it and I wish to carry out my vow. Please advise as to who I can give the money to, can I give it to a family member, or a beggar that comes to our door, can I buy something with the money and then give it in sadaqah or should I give the money in sadaqah just like that?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
