Now updated: Ramadan calendar -

Most of the times I swear by the name of Allah, I get paranoid thinking whether I just lied or I said the truth. One time my friend was asking for my English assignment so I can give it to him, inside I didn't want to give it to him but physically I told him I will send it to you. So I deleted the assignment off my laptop and my school laptop so I don't be able to send the assignment to him (I already finished the assignment and sent it to the teacher so it doesn't matter if I delete it or not). So my friend the next day tells me did you send the assignment via email? I tell him I didn't find it on my laptop, he tells me say wallah, and said wallah, it came out of my mouth too quickly. What do I do to stop saying wallah too much?

Swearing by the name of Allah.... When people do that, I get so annoyed. You shouldn't do that, even if you ARE telling the truth: “Do not swear by the name of Allah, whether you are speaking the truth or lying.” (Furu al-Kāfi) Allah says in the Holy Qur’an,

“And make not Allah because of your swearing (by Him) an obstacle to your doing good...”” (Surah al-Baqarah 2:224)

Hazrat Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) also says, “One who swears falsely by Allah for a lie has disbelieved, and one who swear by Allah for truth has sinned, because Allah says: “Do not use Allah for (taking of) your oaths.” (Furu al-Kāfi)

Try saying 'No. Why should I? Do I really need to say that for you to trust me? If you don't think I'm telling the truth, then don't. But I'm not swearing by Allah. It's wrong.' You don't actually need to say it in those exact words, but something like that. Try explaining this to them and hopefully they will understand. I hope I answered your question. Salam.
