The Kaffara (Making Amends) for Breaking the Fast in Ramadan

Yahya related to me from Malik from Ibn Shihab fromHunayd ibn Abd arRahman ibn Awf from Abu Hurayra that aman broke the fast in Ramadan and the Messenger of Allah,may Allah bless him and grant him peace, ordered him tomake kaffara by freeing a slave, or fasting twoconsecutive months, or feeding sixty poor people, and hesaid, "I can't do it."Someone brought a large basket ofdates to the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him andgrant him peace, and he said, "Take this and give it awayas sadaqa." He said, "Messenger of Allah, there is no-nemore needy than I am."The Messenger of Allah, may Allahbless him and grant him peace, laughed until hiseye-teeth appeared, and then he said, "Eat them."
