Abu Hanifa (R): Swearing by Allah SWT

Wakee’ bin al-Jarraah: Aboo Haneefah wouldn’t swear by Allaah except that he’d give one gold coin in charity afterwards. And if he spent on his family, he’d give its equivalent in charity. If he bought a new Thowb he would buy the exact same as a gift for one of the scholars he knew. Whenever food was placed in front of him he’d send a part of it to the poor and needy.
