Questioning My Oath: Reflections on Taking Khuda Ki Qasam

Q: Once while conversing with some body I took khuda ki qasam for some reason. After the conversation I thought about my qasam was right or not. I think I have taken a wrong qasam. The actual sentence for qasam was “khuda ki qasam hum mazaak men bole the”. This sentence was spoken by me for another sentence I spoke earlier (for which I am confused that whether it was spoken in mazaak or not from my side but I took an oath on khuda).


A: Make sincere taubah to Allah Ta’ala and in future do not take qasms unnecessarily. However there is no kaffaarah that is compulsory in this situation.

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

قال الأيمان على ثلاثة أضرب اليمين الغموس ويمين منعقدة ويمين لغو فالغموس هو الحلف على أمر ماض يتعمد الكذب فيه فهذه اليمين يأثم فيها صاحبها لقوله عليه الصلاة والسلام من حلف كاذبا أدخله الله النار ولا كفارة فيها إلا التوبة والاستغفار (هداية 2/478)
