Accused of stealing in Bohra community


Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)



One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Dear Brother,

I have been reciving your letters, and now i have a guestion if you can help me i'll appreciate it. In the month of ramadhan our Beloved Bhaisaheb announced that someone had stolen from his house he thinks that person might be one of the mumineens because he stole only cash and from the envelope which was marked his name on it, then he said he had opened file in the Quran and knows who the person is so please to go and appologize.This was announced in front of hundreds of mumineen who come to pray. Anyways what was the best that he as our leader should have done? Then after a month I hear rummors that the person is My Husband, that also one of my best friends tryes to spread this rummors. Anyways i am trying to convience her to tell me who told her the false news she would'nt tell me. then we go to Bhaisaheb thinking that he would help us but instead  he made my husband hold the Holly Quraan and said infront of all of those who had had the news That i swear upon the Holly Quran and to my GOD that i did not steal from bhaisaheb's house. And then it seemed that they all were satisfied but noone even once think that what they did was wrong to make anInoccent person go throught all that no one even once told Bhai saheb what he did was wrong if he knew who did it just let him come front but no. Anyways My husband came from a very very poor family in Tanga Tanzania they grew up working hard but did not steal then when he was hungry as a child hoping that one day God will show then good life with there faith God did it we moved from tanga to mombasa, still working hard and won lottery to come to Newyork America. We work hard day by day and share our penny with those in Africa who only eat one meal a day why did this happen to us. Me and my husband love to help everyone try to keep peace within friends, even if someone doesnt call us we call them why please write to me before i even loss faith from GOD also please help me.

Accused of stealing in Bohra community

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


We can only sympathize and share your pain with you, that you and your innocent husband had to go through this humiliating and unjust ordeal at the hands of the bhaisaheb and the community. Beloved sister in Islam, you must bear this with patience and wisdom, and must put your full trust in Allah Subhanah Alone at all times, and must sincerely believe that the Just and All Knowing Lord is watching over everything. If any injustice was done to an innocent person in this world, please be rest assured that Allah Subhanah will deliver him justice in the life to come in the Hereafter, and the guilty and unjust people who put you and your innocent husband through this ordeal will be brought as criminals in the Court of Allah Subhanah, where they will have to balance their unjust deeds by paying you with their good deeds!!!


Please be rest assured that whatever injustice that has been meted out to you and your innocent husband, and the humiliation and indignity you had to face in the life of this world; Allah will, Insha Allah, compensate you generously in the Hereafter, and punish the ones who are guilty of accusing and humiliating an innocent slave of Allah Subhanah.


These types of incidents are nothing but the trials of the life of this world and whoever is patient and puts his/her trust in Allah Alone, Allah has promised to honor them, and reward them generously in this life and in the Hereafter.


It is reported in an authentic narration that the Messenger of Allah (saws) swore thrice in the Name of Allah and said that whoever is dealt with injustice in this world, Allah Subhanah will honor him on the Day of Resurrection.


In another narration reported by Hadrat Abu Mabad (r.a.), the Messenger of Allah (saws) advised Hadrat Muadh ibn Jabal (r.a.): Be afraid of the curse of an oppressed person, because there is no screen between his invocation and Allah."


Just a couple of things we would like to highlight from the unfortunate incident that took place, whereby your innocent husband was accused and humiliated.


Firstly, the Bhaisaheb was absolutely lying and playing fraud when he claimed to know the unseen and alleged that he knew the name of the thief, by doing the prohibited act of faal of the Glorious Quran! That was nothing but a blatant and manifest lie and bluff that the Bhaisaheb pulled off; as there is simply just no way that anyone can open the Glorious Quran and determine the name of the person who stole his money!!! Allah has revealed the Glorious Quran for the guidance of mankind, not for some unscrupulous people to use it to bluff and lie to people in the Name and Book of Allah Subhanah.


Secondly, in the sight of the Shariah, it is the responsibility of the person who accuses to produce the proof that so and so is guilty of the deed; and the one who accuses must be asked to swear in the name of Allah that he is indeed saying the Truth, not the person who is being accused and slandered!! In the eyes of Islamic Law, every individual will be deemed innocent, until he is proven guilty! And it is upto the one who accuses, to produce the proof.


Your Statement: please write to me before i even loss faith from GOD.

Dear Sister in Islam, we implore you to put your full trust in Allah Subhanah, and be rest assured that your patience will be rewarded, and Allah will honor you and your innocent husband for the unjust ordeal that you had to bear at the hands of the arrogant people of the community. We humbly implore you to never ever despair of the Mercy and Justice of the All Mighty Lord; and accept this ordeal as a trial from Him; and an opportunity to earn huge rewards for your patience from the All Merciful Lord. We humbly urge you to be rest assured that Allah Subhanah will never ever let go to waste any good deed of the believers; and The All Just Lord will never ever let go the criminals and unjust oppressors, and He will deliver you and your husband His Justice, and reward the innocent generously on the Day of Resurrection. Allah is indeed All Mighty, and Swift in His Retribution.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
