Q 1: What is the
Kaffarah (expiation) for a false oath?
A false oath refers to an oath sworn by a person while knowing the matter to be false. (Part No. 23; Page No. 138) There is no Kaffarah for such an oath. One of the conditions entailing Kaffarah is that the oath is binding upon the individual who makes it, by resolving to do or not to do something that is possible in the future. Swearing a false oath is one of the major sins. Anyone who commits this must make sincere Tawbah (repentance to Allah), ask often for Allah’s Forgiveness, and seek to draw closer to Him by increasing supererogatory acts of worship and supplicating to Him. May Allah forgive such people and accept their Tawbah.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
