Hadith & Seerah, The Teachings of the Holy Prophet, The Ways of the Prophet (SAWS) / Sunday, February 7th, 2010

Hadrat lmran bin Husain (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated that he heard the Messenger of ALLAH (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) say; “Vows are of two kinds; so if any one vows to do an act of obedience, that is for ALLAH, it must be fulfilled; but if anyone vows to do an act of disobedience, that is for the satan it must not be fulfilled but must make atonement for it to the extent he would do in the case of an oath.”[Nisai, Mishkat]

Hadrat lbn Abbas (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated the Messenger of ALLAH (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam)) as saying, “If any one takes a vow but does not name (specify) it, its atonement is the same as for an oath, if any one takes a vow to do an act of disobedience, its atonement is the same as that for an oath; if any one takes a vow he is unable to fulfil, its atonement is the same as for an oath; but if any one takes a vow he is able to fulfil, he must do so.” [Abu Da’ud, lbn Majah, Mishkat]
