False Oaths

False Oaths الحلف واليمين الفاجرة

1. How can one be safe from the punishment of Allah when he is quick in making false oaths.

1ـ كَيْفَ يَسْلَمُ مِنْ عَذابِ اللّهِ المُتَسَرِّعُ إلَى اليَمِينِ الفاجِرَةِ؟!

2. The swearing of a man increases for four [possible reasons]: something shameful that he knows about himself, or as a means of entreating by which he may be deemed truthful, or because of his inability to express himself so he takes oaths as verbiage to connect his speech, or because of an accusation that has been made upon him.

2ـ يَكْثُرُ حَلْفُ الرَّجُلِ لأرْبَع: مَهانَة يَعْرِفُها مِنْ نَفْسِهِ، أوضَراعَة يَجْعَلُها سَبِيلاً إلى تَصْديقِهِ، أوْ عَيّ لِمَنْطِقِهِ فَيَّتَخِدَ الأيـْمانَ حَشْواً وَصِلَةً لِكَلامِهِ، أوْ لِتُهْمَة قَدْ عُرِفَ بِها.

3. The thing that brings the quickest punishment is a false oath.

3ـ أسْـرَعُ شَـيْء عُقُوبَةً اَليَمِينُ الفاجِرَةُ.

4. Do not habituate yourself to taking oaths, for verily the one who swears excessively is not safe from sin.

4ـ لاتُعَوِّدْ نَفْسَكَ اليَمِينَ، فَإنَّ الحَلاّفَ لا يَسْلَمُ مِنَ الإثْمِ.
