    Title: Kaffarah will be wajib or not?

    Question: One day I promised to the Allah that I will not masturbate and I will not watch porn for one month. But I am not able to control myself & I watched porn & did masturbate. So my question is that oath shall take place or not & I have to give Kaffarah or not?

    If you did not say the word of oath verbally then no oath took place. Hence there is no need to pay the kaffarah, however it is haram and major sin to watch porn and masturbate. It is mandatory to do taubah and istighfar.
