Taking Oath of not Having Intimacy

Fatwa ID: 03365

Answered by: Maulana Imran Mughal​

Question

Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh,

If a wife says to her husband, 'I will never have intimacy with you', would this count as a qasm? If so, does she have to fast if she breaks her qasm?

 

 

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful 

 

Answer

Wa Alaikum Salam,

 

If the words, “I will never have intimacy with you,” were mentioned without swearing or taking an oath by Allah’s name or one of His names, then that will not be considered an oath.[1]

                                        

Only Allah knows best
