A person vowed that if his work
contract was renewed, he would give a certain amount in charity. In his mind he meant that
this was if it was renewed for a year, but it turned out that his contract was renewed for
three months. He did not utter the words “one year”. Is he under any obligation?
Praise be to Allaah.
We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn
Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen, may Allaah preserve him, who answered as follows:
No, he is not under any obligation. And Allah knows best.
