Breaking an oath

Q: If a woman makes an oath to Allah saying that she will undergo female circumcision and if she breaks her oath she will become a kafir forever. Does she become a kaafir if she has changed her mind and does not want to undergo circumcision?

A: She will not become a kaafir through breaking the oath.

She will not become a kaafir, however if she breaks the oath, she should discharge the kaffarah for breaking the oath.

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