f:848 -    Vow not to work in a non-Muslim hospital
Country : India,
Name : Abdul Aziz
Question:     Aslm! Once I said I am vowing that i will never do a job in non Muslim hospital but i got offer ,what should i do. kindly give me solution for this.  ALLAH HAFIZ.
Answer:     Walaikum As Salaam Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakutuhu,

If the job itself is of a permissible kind, then you may work there.  However, for the oath, you will need to expiate for it.

The expiation of an oath is to free a slave, to feed 10 poor individuals twice or to give the equivalent amount of a day's food to 10 poor individuals or to give a moderate quality cloth good enough to cover the body to 10 individuals.

If a person cannot do all this, then that person should fast for 3 consecutive days.  If even during the 3 days of fasting, that person gets money from somewhere or even has a strong possibility of getting money from somewhere, then any one of the above mentioned is Compulsory (Wajib) on that person.  As given in Radd ul Muhtaar, Kitaab Ul Imaan, Vol. 3, Pg No. 26 and in Vol. 2, Pg No. 895.

And Allah Most High knows best.
