Recompense retribution hereafter

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.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chaper 36 Surah Yaa Seen verse 54:

54 Then on that Day (of Judgement) not a soul will be wronged in the least, and ye shall but be repaid the meeds of your past deeds.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale-Imraan verse 185:

185 Every soul shall have a taste of death: and only on the Day of Judgment shall you be paid your full recompense. Only he who is saved far from the fire and admitted to the garden will have attained the object (of life): for the life of this world is but goods and chattels of deception.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 281:

281 And fear the day when ye shall be brought back to Allah. Then shall every soul be paid what it earned and none shall be dealt with unjustly.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 31 Surah Luqmaan verse 16:

16 If there be (but) the weight of a mustard-seed and it were (hidden) in a rock or (anywhere) in the heavens or on earth, (on the Day of Judgment) Allah will bring it forth: for Allah understands the finest mysteries (and) is well-acquainted (with all things).


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 21 Surah Anbiyaa verse 47:

47 We shall set up scales of justice for the Day of Judgment so that not a soul will be dealt with unjustly in the least. And if there be (no more than) the weight of a mustard seed We will bring it (to account): and enough are We to take account.


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.698 Narrated by Abu Huraira

We went out in the company of Allah's Messenger on the day of (the Battle of) Khaibar, and we did not get any gold or silver as war booty, but we got property in the form of things and clothes. Then a man called Rifa'a bin Zaid, from the tribe of Bani Ad-Dubaib, presented a slave named Mid'am to Allah's Messenger (saws). Allah's Messenger (saws) headed towards the valley of Al-Qura, and when he was in the valley of Al-Qura an arrow was thrown by an unidentified person, struck and killed Mid'am (the slave) who was making a she-camel of Allah's Messenger (saws) kneel down. The people said, "Congratulations to him (the slave) for gaining Paradise." Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "No! By Him in Whose Hand my soul is, for the sheet which he (the slave) stole from the war booty before its distribution on the day of Khaibar, is now burning over him."



Sahih Muslim Hadith 6251 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah

Allah's Messenger (saws) said: Do you know who is the abjectly poor? They (the Companions (r.a.)) replied: An abjectly poor person amongst us is one who has neither dirham with him nor wealth. He (the Prophet (saws)) said: The abjectly poor of my Ummah would be he who would come on the Day of Resurrection with prayers and fasts and Zakat but (he would find himself bankrupt on that day as he would have exhausted his funds of virtues) since he hurled abuses upon others, brought calumny against others, unlawfully consumed the wealth of others, shed the blood of others, beat others, etc. The virtues of such a person would be credited to the account of one (who suffered at his hand). And if his good deeds fall short to clear the account, then their sins would be entered in (his account) and he would be thrown in the Hell-Fire?


Your Question: i would like to know if any person unlawfully ate the money of other people will the victim will be recompensed in hereafter. 

Dear and beloved brother in Islam, amongst the very reason that the Lord Most Majestic Declares that the Day of Judgment will be established in Truth is so that every single good and every single evil, regardless of whether it be big or small, is fully and completely recompensed.


The currency of recompense in the Hereafter is not Dollars or Dirhams, but in light of the guidance of the Quran and the Sunnah, the currency of recompense in the Hereafter is deeds.


If one harms another human being without right, or consumes the wealth of others unlawfully, that person will have to recompense the person who was harmed or unjustly treated at his hands with his deeds in the Hereafter! According to level of the harm and injustice, Allah Subhanah will transfer an equivalent amount of the good deeds of that person to the account of the person who was harmed by his hands; and if perchance the person who did evil has no credit of good deeds left in his account to recompense the person he unjustly harmed, Allah Subhanah will transfer an equivalent amount of evil deeds from the account of the person who was harmed to the account of the person who harmed him.


Allah is our witness brother, the Day of Judgment will not come to an end unless and until each and every single deed, regardless of whether that deed is as big as a mountain or as small as a mustard seed, is brought to account and a full and just recompense has been established by the Lord Most Just, Most Supreme. No doer of good will walk away empty handed, and no doer of evil will be able to walk away without paying full and just retribution for his evil..that is the Solemn Promise of Allah Subhanah and Allah Subhanah never ever goes against His Word.


Rest absolutely assured brother, that if one has taken anothers wealth or harmed another without right, the victim will be fully recompensed for his loss in the Presence of the Lord Most Majestic, Most Supreme.


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,
