Q: One year ago I was caught up in a situation where I feared for my life. I kept lying about something to my perpetrators and then they asked me to keep my right hand on the Quran and make a vow. I vowed to tell the truth but again lied to them. I have repented to Allah for this wrong vow and I want to know how can I correct this.
A: If it was an oath in relation to something of the past then you should sincerely make taubah and repent for the lie.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
