Kaffarah for breaching a vow

A: If you intended by this vow to refrain yourself from doing a certain thing, you have to offer a Kaffarah (expiation) of breaking an oath. The Kaffarah in this case is either to feed ten needy persons, giving each 1.5 kilos of the staple food of your country, or to clothe them, by giving a garment for each, or to free a believing slave. (Part No. 23; Page No. 203) But, if you are unable to do any of these, you should fast for three days, for that vow falls under the ruling on the oath, as Allah (Glorified be He) says, Allâh has already ordained for you (O men) the absolution from your oaths. The absolution of oaths is the Kaffarah, which is to be paid as mentioned.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
