Taking a false oath

Q: If a person has taken a false oath in front of the Ka'bah because one asks him to, what is the penalty?

A: If it was in relation to doing something in the future then the kaffaarah for breaking an oath is to feed ten poor people two meals each, or give each one of them the equivalent of sadaqatul fitr or clothe each one of them.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
