Sunnah 79: Do not swear by anything other than Allah

July 8, 2010

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

“If one has to take an oath, he should swear by Allah or otherwise keep quiet.” [Bukhari]

Some of are used to saying “I swear upon my mother!” but as we can see by the hadith, this is prohibited. We should try not to swear by anything, and if we must, we should only swear by Allah.
