Swearing to reduce the grades of all girls in the class
Q 4: When I was explaining a lesson to female students, they suddenly made a noise in the class. I asked them to be quiet, but they did not obey me.
I became so furious that I swore by Allah that I would reduce the grades of all the students in the class without exception.
However, when I calmed down and came back to my senses, I felt that what I had done was not the right thing to do. Thus, I did not fulfill my oath which I swore, as I saw (Part No. 23; Page No. 168) it would be unjust to some students. I gave each student the mark she deserved, bearing in mind that some of them obtained the full mark. One and a half year later, I offered Kaffarah (expiation) for that unfulfilled oath. Is my broken oath hereby expiated for or is there something else due on me?
If you offered Kaffarah for an oath by feeding ten Miskins (needy persons), or clothing them, or emancipating a believing slave, there is nothing due on you anymore. Praise be to Allah.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
