Shaykh Ibn Baaz said: …the kaffaarah should be offered in the form of food, not cash, because this is what it says in the Qur.aan and Sunnah. What must be offered is half a saa’[1] of the local staple food, whether it be dates, wheat or something else. That is equivalent to approximately one-and-a-half kilograms. If you give them lunch or dinner, or give them clothes which are suitable for praying in – namely a thobe or a lower and upper garment (izaar and ridaa) – that is sufficient.

Footnote:
[1] One Saa` is equal to four (4) Mudd, and one (1) Mudd is equal to the amount held by cupping the two hands together. It is a measure by volume not by weight.
