Stolen money repay.
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:
If someone has stolen money from u and he has agreed to that he has stolen Now he is asking for some time to pay the amount stolen
(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.)
Stolen money repay
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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
If someone has stolen some money from another, and is caught and convicted for his crime, the thief would obviously be tried for his transgression to the full extent of the Law.
But if someone has stolen some money from another, and as a manifestation of his sincere repentance, the thief himself comes to his victim and confesses that he had stolen some money and asks for forgiveness and/or some time to repay the stolen amount, it would only be piety and righteousness on the part of the victim that he accede to the request of repentant person and allow him some time to repay the stolen amount.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
