  • CHAPTER No: 12

    To vow to other than Allah is an act of Shirk

     

    Allah the Most Exalted said:

     

    "They (are those who) fulfill (their) vows, and they fear a Day whose evil will be wide-spreading."

    (76:7)

    Allah the Most Exalted also said:

     

    "And whatever you spend for spendings (e.g. in Sadaqah ­charity etc. for Allah's cause) or whatever vow you make, be sure Allah knows it all."

    (2:270)

    Narrated 'Aishah (May Allah be pleased with him) that Allah's Messenger (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) said:

     

    "Whoever vows that he will be obedient to Allah, he should be obedient to Him; and whoever made a vow that he will disobey Allah, he should not disobey Him".

     (Al-Bukhari)

     

    Important issues of the Chapter

     

    1) Fulfillment of the vow is obligatory.

    2) Since it is approved that making a vow is an act of worship to Allah, then directing a vow to other than Allah is committing Shirk.

    3) Any vow based on disobedience (to Allah the Almighty) is impermissible to be carried out.
