The amount of food provided to each poor person as Kaffarah for an oath
What is the amount of food that should be provided to the poor as Kaffarah (expiation) for breaking an oath? Is it permissible to give the food of ten poor people to one poor person?
The amount of food required for feeding one poor person as Kaffarah for breaking an oath is half a Sa` (1 Sa`=3 kg. approx.) of wheat, rice, or the type of staple food of the country, which is about 1.5 kg. It is not permissible to give the food of ten poor people to just one poor person, for Allah (Exalted be He) says:
...feed ten Masâkîn (poor persons)
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
