    Title: Oath of children

    Question: My wife gave me oath of my children for not to do some work (talking to a particular person) in future but due to many reasons I could not keep this oath. Is there any kaffarah I have to do for this?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 880/880/M=1434) It is unlawful and sin to swear in the name of other than Allah. You should not have sworn in the name of your children in any case. Tell this ruling to your wife and avoid it in future. In this case there is no financial kaffarah on you. Do taubah and istighfar.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
