Swearing to memorize Surah Al-Baqarah and memorizing only part of it

Q 4: A man swore to memorize Surah al-Baqarah, if he succeeded in his study. He only memorized one Juz' (a 30th of the Qur'an), because he did not pay much attention to memorizing and was preoccupied with other worldly affairs. What should he do?

A: If the reality is as mentioned, he should offer Kaffarah (expiation) for an oath because he has not memorized Surah Al-Baqarah. The Kaffarah involves feeding ten Miskins (needy persons) from the average meal that one feeds their family, or providing them with clothing, or emancipating a believing slave. If none of these is affordable, he must observe Sawm (Fast) for three days.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
