Starting the Kaffarah before breaking the oath

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I have a question. I have to pay a kaffarah because I brok one oath. Before breaking my oath I started fasting. When I reached on my third day of fast I got my haid (periods). Do I need to keep another two fasts again or continue with the last one only immediately after my periods. In another other case if I am willing to feed 10 poor people, can I give the equivalent money to one Muslim lady for ten days food?

A:

  1. You will have to start off the kaffaarah again. Kaffaarah is only valid after the oath has been broken.
  2. Yes.

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