Kaffaarah for breaking salaah

Fatwaa ID: 1123

Assalam alaikum warehmatullahi wabarakatuh
If during salaat ,one has to break the salaat due to emergency or anything
What do we have to do for compensation as kaffaara

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

At the outset, it is not permissible to break a salaah unless necessary. If one breaks the salaah, then according to the Hanafi legal school, it must be made up. Nevertheless, there is no compensation or kaffaarah. Istighfaar should be made.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
