Kaffarah is paid to compensate for a wrong action. Kaffarah may be required when for example, someone breaks an oath or breaks their fast in Ramadan intentionally (without a valid reason such as travel or sickness).
Depending on the initial intended action, Kaffarah is worked out by way of the following:
- A broken oath requires a person to fast 3 consecutive days or feed 10 people.
- Breaking your fast in Ramadan intentionally requires a person to either fast 60 consecutive days or feed 60 people. The estimated cost to feed one person is $10.
