False oaths

The first question of Fatwa no. 11815

Q 1: I am a student in an institute affiliated to Ansar Al-Sunnah Al-Muhammadiyyah Group (Supporters of the Sunnah of the Prophet) in Kassala. There is an Islamic union for the students of Eritrea. However, there are bitter disputes between the union and the group. It is, thus, prohibited for the students of the institute to join this union. I have got involved with the union. When it came to the knowledge of the institute supervisor, he asked me if I am a member of the union and I replied in the negative. However, he forced me to swear that I am not. I swore and thought that I might not have committed a sin. I would like to ask whether the oath I swore is false or a Kaffarah (expiation) must be offered. Please, be informed that if I had not been forced to swear, I would not have sworn. Necessity compelled me to swear to continue my religious education; otherwise I would have been expelled from the institute.

A: The oath you took is a “false oath” which is a major sin for which no Kaffarah is sufficient, because it is a grave sin. No Kaffarah is required for it according to the most correct opinion of scholars. Rather, you must make Tawbah (repentance to Allah) and seek Allah’s Forgiveness.

May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.

Nog beter gezegd, liegen zonder te zweren is al een grote zonde, laat staan met…

A: Lying is absolutely Haram (prohibited) except in the cases that are excluded by Shari‘ah (Islamic law), which does not include what is mentioned in the question. This prohibition is based on the general meaning of evidence, such as Allah’s Statement: O you who believe! Be afraid of Allâh, and be with those who are true (in words and deeds). Moreover, it is related in the Two Sahih (authentic) Books of Hadith (i.e. Al-Bukhari and Muslim) and other books of Hadith on the authority of `Abdullah ibn Mas`ud, (may Allah be pleased with Him) that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: Adhere to telling the truth, for telling the truth leads to righteousness and righteousness leads to Jannah (Paradise). A person will keep on speaking the truth and seek to speak the truth until they are recorded with Allah as a truth-speaker. Beware of lying! For lying leads to immorality and immorality leads to Hellfire. A person will keep on telling lies and seek to tell lies until they are recorded with Allah as a liar. It is also narrated that `Abdullah ibn Mas`ud, said: “Telling lies is wrong whether in earnest or in jest, read if you wish: O you who believe! Be afraid of Allâh, and be with those who are true (in words and deeds).

(Part No. 26; Page No. 52)

He read the Ayah (Qur’anic verse) and said: “Do you find any Rukhsah (concession) allowing anyone to tell a lie?”

May Allah grant us success!

May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions!

Wat weer wel zo is, is dat je beter liegend op Allah swt kunt zweren, dan zweren op een schepsel!
