17 Dec 2023 Ref-No#: 5624

Assalamu alaikum, im 15 , i break an oath, how should i afford kaffarah if i dont have money, should i collect or something, or fast for 3 days?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Wa ‘alaykum us-salāmu wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
Dear child,

May Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala bless you with barakah in your rizq and life.

When a person takes an oath upon the name of Allah to do or refrain from a certain act in the future, it is necessary to fulfil that oath. If he does not fulfil the oath, it is compulsory to give Kaffarah (penance) for misusing the name of Allah.
If one cannot feed ten poor people two meals or clothe them for a valid reason, as is in your case, then he may fast for three consecutive days.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
