How Can I Repay Stolen Goods From a Mall?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: As salam alaykum,

My friend stole goods worth $20 from a mall . He has repented. Now he wants to repay his theft. How should he go about it without going to jail?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

I pray that this message finds you well, insha’Allah.

You should try to get the value of the stolen memory cards to management at the particular shop in a manner which doesn’t cause you greater harm.

And you need to repent for the error in judgement. [see: A Reader on Tawba (Repentance)]

And Allah alone knows best.
