My brother, always see, we see emails from South Africa martial arts about our goal and by the way, I love to read where your emails are coming from. So when you email me, please email me a state or a location. And it's something that it helps me to contextualize and perhaps even fine tune the answer for you. So brother away see from South Africa, beautiful land that have been there many times and I look forward to visiting soon again, a shout out to either he says that he made an oath In the name of Allah subhana wa Tada. He made a person that if he did such and such a deed, he doesn't he didn't tell me what it is in the oath that he would pay such and such amount of sadaharu charity. Then he

00:00:39--> 00:00:52

says that I have done this deed, but I'm unable to pay that quantity of charity. I have done the deed, but I'm unable to pay that quantity of charity. So what should I do? One

00:00:54--> 00:01:03

out of seven, me poverty in Asia. No, he lay him first.

00:01:15--> 00:01:57

So the response is that this is something that is called a yameen. And you have not been able to fulfill your Yemenia mean is an oath. Allah says in the Quran, law you are who do como la bella with a monocle. Voila, can you ask her to come in via a man? Allah will not call you to task for your frivolous oats. But a low will call you to task for that which you were solemn about. So a frivolous oath, you understand by context? No, well, I'm not hungry. Now. No, I'm not gonna eat right now. You just say it like this, you know, everybody understands that if food is put in front of you, you eat from it, you're just saying like that. But when you say a solemn oath, and you say, will law he, I

00:01:57--> 00:02:13

swear by a law that such and such, you know, I'm not going to do that. And it's very clear from the seriousness. And from the context, you making a custom by Allah subhana wa, tada, this is now an oath, and you're obliged to fulfill it, unless, unless

00:02:14--> 00:02:52

you see something that is better for you.

And the Prophet system said, by the way, that whoever gives an oath and a custom, and then he sees that there's something better than his oath, then let him break the oath and give the photo for the oath. Allah has made a way out for us the process and has made a way out for it's a beautiful thing. So for example, suppose you were very angry at your friend, very angry at your friend, that whatever he did, and you got very angry, and

00:02:52--> 00:03:31

you said to him, I swear by a law I will never visit your house again. And I'm never going to step foot in your house and I'm never going to have food with you again, spell that this is not a good oath. It's not a good oath at all. You should not do it, you should not have done it, but you did it. Now what are you gonna do? You're supposed to break the oath and give the co founder of the oath, and then men do away with your brother again. How does one meant How does one do the kafala it is in the Quran very clearly. Allah says in the Quran, that if you are going to break an oath for cofounder to who are more I shall Altima Sakina mean Oh, salty metal dreamin, alikum hokey swear to
