عن أبي موسى الأشعري -رضي الله عنه- قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ - صلى الله عليه وسلم -: «إنّي والله -إنْ شاء الله- لا أَحلف على يمين، فأرى غيرها خيراً منها إلاَّ أَتيتُ الَّذِي هو خير، وتحلَّلْتُهَا».
[صحيح.] - [متفق عليه.]
المزيــد ...

Abu Mūsa al-Ash‘ari (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) said: "By Allah - if Allah wills - if I take an oath to do something and then find something else better than it, I do that which is better and make expiation for breaking the oath."

Explanation

The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said about himself that if he swore an oath then saw that it was better not to fulfill it, he would break his oath and make the due expiation. He would always take the better course by doing something or refraining from doing it.
