Swearing and breaking an oath of making the wife no longer lawful in marriage

Question 27: What is the ruling on a man who swore that his wife would be unlawful for him if she entered her maternal uncle’s house, then after some time she went there with his consent?

Answer: If the husband’s intention when he swore that oath was only to forbid his wife from entering her maternal uncle’s house, and she did enter it, he must offer Kaffaarah (expiation) for breaking an oath. The Kaffaarah is to feed ten Miskeens (needy people) the average meal that one feeds their family, or to provide them with clothing, or to emancipate a believing slave. In case he is unable to carry out any of these, he must observe Sawm (Fast) for three days..read more here.
