Question: What is the Kaffarah (penalty)for breaking an oath?

Answer: If a person breaks his oath, he will have to pay Kaffarah, which comprises of feeding 10 people two meals each.

Alternatively, he should clothe ten poor people, with clothing that is sufficient to conceal their bodies.

If he is unable to fulfil any of the above two, due a valid reason, he should fast for three consecutive days.
