I made a vow to give all my salary in charity if I became a teacher.
It is worth mentioning that I am not quite sure of this vow, but it is most likely true. My question is: What should I do with my salary which is 4,200 Riyals? Am I permitted to take it in order to avoid asking people, especially that I am married and have two kids. My living necessities are many and I am separated from my husband due to Shar`y (Islamically lawful) reasons, but divorce has not occurred yet. Besides, I have a maid servant.
It is sufficient to give in charity one third of your salary, for the Prophet (peace be upon him) said to one who vowed to give all his property in charity,
A third, i.e. of your property, is enough for you.
