Feeding the poor as a Kaffarah should extend for sixty days

A: Feeding poor people can take the form of giving each poor person half a Sa` (1 Sa`=3 kg. Approx.), which equals approximately 1.5 kg, of a staple foodstuff. However, it will discharge the obligation to gather the aggregate number of poor people and offer them lunch or dinner according to the correct opinion maintained by scholars. However, it is necessary to feed the number of people defined by Shari`ah (Islamic law), i.e., sixty poor people.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
