Swearing oaths as a muslim? Sure, no problem, as long as you swear by allah [1,2,3]. The purpose for swearing by God, or in God’s name, is to call him as our witness and the judge of our honesty and sincerity in what we are saying. The implication is, that if I am lying, or if I am not keeping my word, then God may hold me accountable and punish me.
Since only deity can be appealed to for the guarantee of my intentions and thoughts, it is idolatry to use the name of anything else besides God in swearing. So, how would you expect allah to swear, since he claims to be the only true god? By himself of course. Now, how does allah swear then?

Allah swears by virtually all of his creation. What is the problem with that, you might say? Big problem. Let me break it down for you. If allah’s words are absolute truth, they need to be eternal . They can not be true today and false tomorrow. With me so far?
If allah then swears by his own creation, allah’s words can not be true, since creation hasn’t always been around. At one point of time, it was created. Beginning to see the problem?
Secondly, if allah swears by anything else besides himself, he is either:
1. Saying that parts of his creation are deities, thus making creation partners with himself. I love the smell of a classic shirk!
2. Lowering himself to the same value as his own creation. So here we are again, establishing that…
Islam is false. Allah is a fabricated god made up by a false prophet.
 Narrated ‘Umar: The Prophet said, “If anybody has to take an oath, he should swear ONLY by Allah.” The people of Quraish used to swear by their fathers, but the Prophet said, “Do not swear by your fathers.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 58, Number 177)
 Narrated Ibn ‘Umar: Allah’s Apostle met ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab while the latter was going with a group of camel-riders, and he was swearing by his father. The Prophet said, “Lo! Allah forbids you to swear by your fathers, so whoever has to take an oath, he should swear by Allah or keep quiet.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 78, Number 641)
 Narrated AbuHurayrah: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Do not swear by your fathers, or by your mothers, or by rivals to Allah; and swear by Allah ONLY, and swear by Allah only when you are speaking the truth. (Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 21, Number 3242)
