Fatwaa ID: 636
Is it permissible to pay kaffara yameen for breaking an oath online or does one have to directly feed or clothe 10 poor people?
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.
You may complete the kaffaarah directly or through an agent. It should be noted that the organization you give your funds to for fulfilling this are your agent. Your kaffaarah will only be complete once they feed or clothe the ten eligible paupers in the appropriate manner. Hence, due diligence must be made when choosing an agent. The abuse in this field is rampant.
And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
