[Q 213] Using Wallāh in Conversations and Texts


Many youngsters nowadays mention ‘Wallāhī’ very commonly in conversations.

My question is – in texting,

the ‘LL’ (double L) in ‘WALLĀHĪ’ is mentioned by many youngsters as ‘II’ (double i) Making it look like ‘WAllĀHĪ’ so it looks exactly same when all letters are uncapitalised.

Is this classified as an Sharī Oath still? & what advice should be told to these individuals.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب بعون الملك الوهاب اللهم هداية الحق والصواب


If one speaks “Wallahi or wallah (واللہ)” it will be considered Shari Oath (یمین) because the intention of Yameen isn’t required here.

So one should be careful when using this word. And should be avoided as long as possible.
