Question

I swore in the name of ALLAH that i would be kafir if i do this and then later i broke by doing that thing.But at that time i didnt know that it would make me kafir..i was completely unaware.Please tell me did i become kafir?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

This swearing is strictly forbidden, but you do not go out of the fold of Islam because of this swearing. This is because it appears that your intention is not to disbelieve, but rather to refrain from doing that thing. You have to offer an expiation for breaking an oath, and you must also repent to Allah sincerely and not return to this forbidden act.

For more benefit on making an oath that if one does not do something, he becomes a Kaafir, please refer to Fatwa 374413.

Allah Knows best.
