Qasam thinking something will happen

Fatwaa ID: 611

Question:
السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

A little while ago in the state of anger I said a qasam that I won’t go to my sisters wedding if there’s free mixing
I thought there was going to be segregation when I got there but there was none and I ended up staying the whole time for the wedding

What is the correct way of doing kaffarah in this situation ?

Jazakallah Khair

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

If you went to the wedding genuinely thinking that it would be segregated, perhaps based on some substantial reason, then there is no kaffaarah on you. Otherwise, you will have to give kaffaarah.
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.
