“I swear on my mum’s life!”
“Ogun gbo! (the god of iron is hearing)
Venerating people or things in a way that does not go as far as ascribing lordship to them, is an example of minor shirk. Minor shirk includes everything that may lead to major shirk, or
that is described in the sunnah as shirk but
doesn’t reach the extent of major shirk. An example is minor shirk in words or statements. How many people say: “ I swear on my mum, I wasn’t there!” or “This is the ground which I will sleep (in Yoruba, ile ti n ma wo sun ni), etc.
The Prophet salallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: Do not swear by your fathers, or by your mothers, or by rivals to Allaah; and swear
by Allah only, and swear by Allah only
when you are speaking the truth [Abu Dawood] How many people swear as a habit? Stay away from swearing on people or things and gently advised others too!
May Allaah forgive us of our misdeeds (Aameen)
