Making a vow in one's mind

Q: I made a niyat of doing a sacrifice. If one of my problems is solved then I will sacrifice this thing in front of Allah. But I want to take that back before my problem gets solved because I think I will break this niyat or promise after my problem is solved.

A: If the niyat is made in the mind then you can change it as long as it was not verbal.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
