Check and En Passant ?

I had an average position and making an attack, relying on maintaining tension. I'd just opened the top players defense in a tournament, his king was exposed, and I was on a decent streak, it wouldve been a 4 point win. Then apparently I cant put a king in check with an en passant capture ?? Move 21
Why does this rule exist ? Is it circumstantial ?

That's not how en passant works at all.
