Taking the oath of Zhihar that his wife does not visit her family and she went

Q: I had a dispute with my wife upon her visiting her family; I thus made an oath three times saying: "If you visit your family again, you will be unlawful to me in marriage just like my mother and sister." Afterwards, I needed some money so I took her gold jewels to sell them without her consent. When she knew that I had sold her gold jewels, she asked me to bring them back or else she will go to her family's house. I did not reply. After that she went to her family. What is the ruling on this? May Allah reward you with the best.

A: If the reality is as mentioned, that you made Zhihar conditional on your wife's going to her family's house. Then, she went to them, you thus committed Zhihar. Your wife becomes unlawful to you until you offer Kaffarah of Zhihar by freeing a Muslim slave. If you are unable to do so, you have to fast two successive months. If you are unable to do so, you have to feed sixty needy people each one half of Sa`(1 Sa`= 2.172kg) of dried dates, wheat, or rice, and such staple food in the country.
