To feed needy people to fulfill

Q: While I was breastfeeding my three-month-old daughter, my elderly and ill mother-in-law called upon me to lift her and seat her. I drew my breast from my daughter's mouth while she was crying; I seated my mother-in-law and gave her a cup of milk. Then, I went back to my daughter, and found saliva in her mouth. I put my breast in her mouth, but she did not suckle. In that moment, I realized that she had died. I hope your Eminence would guide me to what should I do. Allah is witness over my speech. May Allah grant us success.

A: If the case is as you have mentioned, there is no Kaffarah (expiation) ordained upon you, for what you mentioned in the question means that you did not cause the death of your daughter. The basic principle is being free from the charge of murder. (Part No. 21; Page No. 306) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet, his family and Companions.
