Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam


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?


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.

Please see:

And Allah alone knows best.
