68-Surah Al-Qalam ( The Pen ) 10
    And do not obey every worthless habitual swearer
    وَلَا تُطِعْ كُلَّ حَلَّافٍ مَّهِينٍ

    Quran's Tafhim ( explanation)

    *6) The word mahin is used for a contemptible, degraded and mean person. This is indeed a necessary quality of a person who swears many oaths. He swears an oath for every minor thing because he himself has the feeling that the people take him for a liar and would not believe him until he swore an oath. For this reason he is not only degraded in his own eyes but commands no respect in society either.
