29. Oaths Breaking (Breaking the Qasam)

 



Surah No. 2, Al Baqr, Ayat No. 224 & 225



وَلَا تَجْعَلُوا اللَّهَ عُرْضَةً لِأَيْمَانِكُمْ أَنْ تَبَرُّوا وَتَتَّقُوا وَتُصْلِحُوا بَيْنَ النَّاس

لَا يُؤَاخِذُكُمُ اللَّهُ بِاللَّغْوِ فِي أَيْمَانِكُمْ وَلَٰكِنْ يُؤَاخِذُكُمْ o وَاللَّهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ

oبِمَا كَسَبَتْ قُلُوبُكُمْ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ حَلِيمٌ

Translation :



And do not take Allah's name an excuse in your oaths against doing good or acting rightly, or making peace between persons; and Allah is All Hearer and Knower. Allah will not call you to account for your unwilled oaths, but He will take account for your willed oaths in your hearts; and He is Forgiving Most Forbearing.



Surah No. 5, Al Maaeda, Ayat No. 89



لاَ يُؤَاخِذُكُمُ اللّهُ بِاللَّغْوِ فِي أَيْمَانِكُمْ وَلَـكِن يُؤَاخِذُكُم بِمَا عَقَّدتُّمُ الأَيْمَانَ فَكَفَّارَتُهُ

إِطْعَامُ عَشَرَةِ مَسَاكِينَ مِنْ أَوْسَطِ مَا تُطْعِمُونَ أَهْلِيكُمْ أَوْ كِسْوَتُهُمْ أَوْ تَحْرِيرُ رَقَبَةٍ

فَمَن لَّمْ يَجِدْ فَصِيَامُ ثَلاَثَةِ أَيَّامٍ ذَلِكَ كَفَّارَةُ أَيْمَانِكُمْ إِذَا حَلَفْتُمْ وَاحْفَظُواْ أَيْمَانَكُمْ

o كَذَلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ اللّهُ لَكُمْ آيَاتِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ

Translation :



Allah will not take you to task for your unintentional oaths, but He will take you to task for the oaths which you swear earnestly with firm intention.The compensation for breaking such oaths is the feeding of ten poor people with food of average standard, which you feed your own household ;or to clothe them ; or to free a slave. Who cannot afford then a three days' fast for him. This is the compensation of breaking your oaths when you have sworn in; But Protect your oaths. Thus Allah makes clear to you His revelations that you may be grateful .
