An Imaam who Takes False Oaths

Q: Salaah-43: A person took the name of Allaah and lied in court. What is the Kaffaara for this and can he be an Imaam?

Answer: A person who lies on oath is guilty of a major sin and even Kaffaara will not suffice. He will always have to seek forgiveness from Allaah and it will be Makrooh to make him an Imaam. And Allaah knows best what is most correct.
