Ruling On Swearing By The Prophet (peace Be Upon Him) by AbuTwins: 3:56pm On Feb 07
A questioner sent us a message that reads: Some people are used to swear by the Prophet (peace be upon him) and this has become customary for them, yet they do not take that as a belief. What is the ruling on this?

Ans by Imam Ibn Baz:
Swearing by the Prophet (peace be upon him) or any other part of creation is a grave Munkar (that which is unacceptable or disapproved of by Islamic law and Muslims of sound intellect) and a form of Shirk (associating others with Allah in His Divinity or worship). Thus, it is not permissible for anyone to swear but by Allah Alone.

It is reported from Imam Ibn `Abdul­Bar (may Allah be merciful with him) that it is not permissible to swear by other than Allah. Besides, authentic Hadith are related in which the Prophet (peace be upon him) forbade this and declared it to be an act of Shirk. One of these Hadith is the one related in the Two Sahih (authentic) Books of Hadith (i.e. Al­Bukhari and Muslim) from the Prophet (peace be upon him) that he said:

Verily! Allah forbids you to swear by your fathers. If one has to take an oath, they should swear by Allah or else keep silent.

Another wording reads:

...they should swear by Allah or say nothing.

Moreover, Abu Dawud and Al­Tirmidhy related through an authentic Sanad (chain of narrators) from the Prophet (peace be upon him) that he said:

"Anyone who swears by other than Allah has become a Kafir (disbeliever) or Mushrik (one who associates others with Allah in His Divinity or worship)."

It is also authentically reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

"Anyone who swears by Amanah (trust) is not one of us."

There are numerous Hadith on this issue, and it is obligatory for all Muslims not to swear by other than Allah. Again, it is not permissible to swear by any creature, no matter who it may be, according to the Hadith mentioned above as well as other Hadith. Hence, the one who is used to do so should be warned against that and his family members, companions and acquaintances should be warned against that as well. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

Anyone among you who sees (an act of) Munkar should change it with his hand; if he could not (do it), he should do so with his tongue; and if he could not, (even) then he should abhor it from his heart, and that is the least (form) of Iman (Faith).
(Related by Muslim in his Sahih Book of Hadith)

Furthermore, swearing by other than Allah is a form of minor Shirk (associating others with Allah in His Divinity or worship), based on the above quoted Hadith. It could even be a form of major shirk if the one taking oath has it in his heart that the one by whom he swears deserves glorification just as Allah deserves it or that he could be worshipped along with Allah, or any other similar disbelieving objectives.

We ask Allah to endow all the Muslims with protection against that and to grant them understanding of His Religion and safety from all things that could bring about His Wrath; indeed He is All-­Hearing, Ever ­Near.

If you terrorists truly serve a holy god then you should know that such god doesn't depend on all these 4ucked satanic rulings to approve of you cos as humans you would never truly meet his standards.


This fratanity injunctions are just to bind you to a man made cult (it would have been none of my business if Islamic terrorists have not ravaged this country milking our niger Delta wealth and killing innocent neutrals)

The problem is that even in the koran Allah himself swears on Muhammad's life. Allah also swears on a multitude of other things in the koran


Verily, by thy life (O Prophet), in their wild intoxication, they wander in distraction, to and fro. Sura 15:72 Y. Ali

I swear by the Quran full of wisdom Sura 36:2

I swear by those who draw themselves out in ranks Sura 37:1

Suad, I swear by the Quran, full of admonition. S. 38:1

I swear by the Book that makes things clear: S. 43:2

I swear by the Book that makes manifest (the truth). S. 44:2

Qaf. I swear by the glorious Quran (that Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah) S. 50:1

I swear by the wind that scatters far and wide, S. 51:1

I swear by the heaven full of ways. S. 51:7

I swear by the Mountain, S. 52:1

I swear by the star when it goes down. S. 53:1

But nay! I swear by the falling of stars; S. 56:75

Noon. I swear by the pen and what the angels write, S. 68:1

But nay! I swear by that which you see, S. 69:38

Nay; I swear by the moon, S. 74:32

Nay! I swear by the day of resurrection. Nay, I swear by the self accusing soul, that the Day of Judgment is a certainty. S. 75:1-2

I swear by the emissary winds, sent one after another (for men's benefit), S. 77:1

Then I swear by the angels who bring down the revelation, S. 77:5

Allah can never kill someone who is doing his work for him. Shekau is a true muslim unlike the hypocritical practitioners of Taqqiya that you have on this forum.

interesting, guess that's the only time allah handles things himself, everyother time he needs a Muslim to go kill an infidel who has a freewill.

BTW the taqqiya practitioners on this forum are also aiding and abeiting for the true terrorists by silence/image polishing, there is a portion in Islam that allows support by deceit

The essence of swearing is that you are calling upon a higher power to affirm wether or not you're telling the truth.

Are you saying wind and mountains are a higher power than Allah?
