Swearing by Allah



While i was in a conversation with a arabic guy from work he was asking me a question which i didn’t want to answer, and just to avoid it i said ” wallahi ana mafi malum ” yes i said that in arabic as the talk was in arabic and i don’t know much of it, it was not intentional it just came out while i was answering back.
Now i am regretting it.
kindly answer. Thank You.


Al-Salam Alaykum

swearing by Allah’s name is a great sin. You must avoid it again and repent to Allah for what you have done! and Allah is the forgiving and Merciful! there is not any Kafara for such a swearing. just there repent and regret in heart is enough.

You don’t have to give information to others if you don’t wish to, but don’t use such words to keep your stance.

best regards!
