Kaffaarah for breaking an oath

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: What is the kaffarah for not being able to fulfill an oath made to Allah?

Bismillaah

A: If one had broken one’s oath, then the kaffarah for breaking an oath is that one feeds 10 poor people two meals or gives them the amount of sadaqatul fitr (i.e. each poor person should be given the amount of sadaqatul fitr) or clothes them with such clothing with which one is able to perform Salaah in it. If one is unable to fulfill this, then one should fast for three days consecutively with the intention of atoning for the broken oath.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
