From that time I came to my house I am really feeling like something in my heart I also prayed to allah and asked for forgiveness.but I still feel the same.Can someone please suggests me what to do.

Answer: Inshallah this finds you well.

The money promised with the name of Allah is called an oath/qasam and if you do not intentionally act according to your oath, you should give Kaffarah for it, which means you should set a slave free, or should fully feed ten indigent persons, or should provide them with clothes. And if your not able to perform these acts, you should fast for three consecutive days.

If it was unintentional, then repent to Allah sincerely and pray it doesn't occur again.
