Oath to do homework

Fatwaa ID: 2225

Question:
السلام علیکم ورحمة الله وبركاته

A student is asking if kaffarah for breaking an oath takes effect:

Wallahi, I will do my homework… and they don’t do it

Answer:
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

If a student took an oath in the name of Allaah Ta’aala to do his homework but failed to do it thereafter, then kaffaarah for breaking an oath will be binding on him. The kaffaarah for breaking an oath is to feed ten people two average meals or clothe ten people sufficient clothes to adequately cover their body. If one is genuinely unable to do either of the above due to not having the financial means, then he must fast three consecutive days. Along with the above, tawbah and istighfaar must be made.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
