Handling Stolen Items after Repentance
  • Question:

    I have a situation and I want to know the right way of handling it I used to steal in the past at a few shopping stores and I made taubah to Allah to forgive me. I have some of the clothes and their are other clothes and items but I don't have them. How should I handle this situation the best way. Should I make money payment since the clothes are used or is there a better way. And what about the other items that I stole how should I handle that situation.

    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    May Allah bless you for your concern to do the right thing after repentance.

    We suggest you calculate the value equivalent to the stolen items. Thereafter pay the stores, the amounts in exchange of the items. If you cannot recall some of the stores, then you can give the estimated value in charity.

    And Allah knows best.
