Atoning For Breaking An Oath

Question

Could one give money as atonement for breaking an oath?


Answer

According to the explicit commands of the Holy Qur'an breaking a solemn oath may be expiated by the following:

1. To feed ten poor people with the standard of food he normally feeds his own family

2. To give them clothes to wear

3. To liberate a slave.

4. If he is unable to do either of these, he must fast for three days.

However, if you don't find it possible you can opt for distributing equal amount. This is possible.
