Will Allah punish her for taking an Oath on Quran and not fulfilling it?


Aoa , My question is there is a girl talking to my husband. Her mother & khala forced her to took oath on Quran that she wont be talking to my husband again , which she did in-front of everyone . Now she has started again talking to my husband . Is it right ? Will Allah punish her? As am having 2 kids,her family knows that . My husband is not interested in marring her, but he is talking to her for fun. And he is telling me by just paying kaffara she is free. Allah will not punish her. I am so scared what to do ?


Waalykum salam
Thank you for your question.

Taking an oath has a way to it. Just by taking a random oath as oath is not authentic. (Kindly refer to the link below to read on oath: )

Assuming that the lady took a proper oath, and then broke it, she can certainly pay Kafara. However, Allah is “just”. And as he says in Quran (sura zilzal:8):

وَمَنْ يَعْمَلْ مِثْقَالَ ذَرَّةٍ شَرًّا يَرَهُ
Meaning: “and whoever does an atom’s weight of evil will see it”

Therefore, despite giving her kafara, she will certainly See what ever damage she has made here. At times, it so happens that a person may see damage here in this realm and the next one. Therefore, rest assured that if she Is really wrong, than she will see nothing but wrong.

Also, having a relation with a non-Mahram is haram. So beyond just the oath, both she and your husband are committing haram at the moment.

On a side note sister, you must speak to your husband and convey your insecurity, worry and pain. And truly speaking he is also an equal share to your problem. He shouldn’t be having any relation with a non-Mahram for “fun”. Allah doesn’t recognize this relation, you will come a category lower with your dislike. Because Allah has greater right on your husband than yourself and He (az) is disliking this interaction.

Therefore, speaking to your husband and keeping things straight will immensely help your situation.

Mind you, by writing the previous paragraph, I do not at all intend to make a rift between the two of you. Rather, trying to eradicate the problem completely. You see, they are both playing as part of the evil. If one part falls, the other will eventually collapse. So, it’s a humble plea that keep yourself very calm and convey the message that things need to end to enjoy life better.
You must explain that you both need to speak better to solve the issue. You may also seek counseling if he is willing.

InshaAllah all goes well
Set aside good charity,
Recite Ziarat Ashura for 40 days
And speak in abundance to Allah (az)

Hopefully, it resolves very soon
