fulfilling A Promise


If u make a promise to any one and that person says ‘if i die you have to fulfill your promise other wise my soul will not get peace.’ Do I have to fulfill that promise?


Assalamu alaykum

Ethically a Promise must be met to. It isn’t decent to break away from a promise.

I also find it wise to mention that it is also very important to see if the thing promised for holds an importance or atleast it isn’t something out of the norm.

Kind regards
