Assalamu aleikum. Question from my dad. Some months back l got irritated with my grandson for doing something I had told him not to do but he continued doing it. I got so angry and irritated that l told him when l die he shouldn't attend my funeral. But when l cooled down l told him it is OK you can attend. On another occasion, l was waking him up for Salaah but he was not waking up, so l told him if you will not wake up now l will never make you wake up again. Now l want to know is there any kaffara for this two incidents.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

There is no Kaffaarah in both situations.[i]

[i] [i] صحيح البخاري (3/ 180)

حدثنا موسى بن إسماعيل، حدثنا جويرية، قال: ذكر نافع عن عبد الله رضي الله عنه: أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: «من كان حالفا، فليحلف بالله أو ليصمت»


 بدائع الصنائع في ترتيب الشرائع (3/ 2)

فاليمين في القسمة الأولى ينقسم إلى قسمين: يمين بالله سبحانه وهو المسمى بالقسم في عرف اللغة والشرع، ويمين بغير الله تعالى وهذا قول عامة العلماء.

وقال أصحاب الظاهر هي قسم واحد وهو اليمين بالله تعالى فأما الحلف بغير الله - عز وجل - فليس بيمين حقيقة، وإنما سمي بها مجازا، حتى إن من حلف لا يحلف فحلف بالطلاق أو العتاق يحنث، وعند عامة العلماء لا يحنث


شرح مختصر الطحاوي للجصاص (7/ 390)

الحلف الذي يتعلق به حكم، هو الحلف بالله، ولا يصح الحلف بغير الله
