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:
assalamo alaikum.we are very worried about the gold which is loosing from our house.we dont know where it goes as only my mother and myself live here.nop servants also and lots of gold is lost.why is this happening to us.please help
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
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.
Gold or any property do not disappear from their places by themselves, nor can they be taken by Jinns, nor can someone make gold or property disappear by Black Magic, etc. If the gold is missing from the house, then someone has either misplaced and forgotten it, or someone has stolen it.
One must take full precautions to the best of his ability to protect his gold and his possessions, and then they must put their full trust in Allah Subhanah. If the gold and/or possession is missing thereafter, then it is confirmed that someone has taken it, misplaced it, or stolen it, and they must try all legal means to recover their possession.
If after trying their best, they still cannot recover or identify the person who stole their possession, they must accept this calamity as a trial from Allah Subhanah and they must be patient and steadfast in their trial, and expect their ajr and reward from Allah Subhanah Alone.
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,
