Make promise in the name of Allah but forgot it

13 Jul 2023 Ref-No#: 5245

As-Salaam-Alaikum this is a silly situation in which I am stuck. The problem is that I just came home from outside after visiting my friend and decided to take a bath but then I decided not to take it.. after a while I just make a promise in the name of Allah accidently that I will put one mug of water on my head because I was feeling some dirtiness around my head. But I put more than two mug of water and after then I realize that I had made a promised and now i break it. I almost forgot the promise. So will this action be count on sin?


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


Wa ‘alaykum us-salāmu wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Respected brother,

If you had pronounced the words out loud then feed ten people two meals or clothe them with a pair of clothes. If you are unable to do these then fast three consecutive days.

If you haven’t taken the vow verbally then there is no need for kaffarah.

Kindly refrain from taking oaths as a habit.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
