Paying Kaffarah to his children for having intercourse with his menstruating wife

Q 10: Is it permissible for a Muslim to pay the Kaffarah (expiation) of having sexual intercourse with his wife during her menstruation to his own dependants, if he is poor? This man has no source of income and he is in dire need. Please give us a detailed answer, and may Allah reward you.

A: If the reality is as mentioned, that this person who is obligated to pay the Kaffarah is in need, it is permissible for him to delay paying it until he can afford it but then he must pay it to poor people other than his family. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
