Question By : Muhammad Naeem

3 years back, a person borrowed money from me, but delayed in paying back. After one year I saught mannat that if he gives me money, I will give it to a madrasa. But more two years passed and now it is hoped that the money will be paid to me in total. But I need this money very much at this time. Can I use this money? What do you say if I have used this money already? What will be kaffara if the case is so? JazakAllah

The answer to your question is as follows:

Your mannat of giving the money to a madrasa as Sadaqa is valid and you should fulfill it by giving it to a madrasa. If you have already spent in your personal affairs, you should give the same amount as sadaqah of Mannat as soon as possible. (And Allah knows best)
