Ruling on money earned from haraam sources

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum 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:
Is it true that if a man who gathered his wealth from haraam sources such as selling wine and manufacturing it, or making and distributing drugs, repents to Allaah, then his wealth becomes halaal?.
(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.)

Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

If he knew at the time of earning haraam money that it was haraam, then it does not become permissible for him when he repents, rather he has to get rid of it by spending it on charitable causes. 

And Allaah is the Source of strength.

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