Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: Assalam alaikum,

When I was a child I took a few apples from private property. I have found out that they did not like it. What should I do?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

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

You can send them an envelope containing an apology and the value of the apples taken.

And Allah alone knows best.
