Breaking Three Oaths: Can I Fast for Kaffara?

Q: I took three different oaths at once in a desperate state of mind, but then I realised it was impossible for me to fulfil them. Now that I have broken them, can I fast three continuous days for every oath. I am not poor but I don’t have any money of my own (not even pocket money) and my parents are not very religious, they are not willing to help me in paying for kaffara. Please guide me according to Sunni Hanafi ruling.


A: Yes.

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