RULING ON ACCEPTING GIFTS THAT HAS BEEN STOLEN


RULING ON ACCEPTING GIFTS THAT HAS BEEN STOLEN


Question:
Is it Harâm (forbidden) to accept a gift if I know that the person giving it to me has stolen it?
What should I do with this said gift if the answer is that it is Harâm?
Answer:
Bismillâhi wassalâtu wassalâmu ala rasoolillâhi amma ba’ad
It is Harâm to accept such a gift, as it is something that has been stolen and so, it is something earned from evil means.
So what you have to do is to enjoin Al-Birr (piety/righteousness) and encourage At-Taqwa (Fear and self-awareness of God) and prevent evil. Therefore, if you know that a person has stolen something and given it to you as a gift, you have to return it to its original owner or advice the theif with Daleel (evidences) and Hikmah (wisdom) that what he has done is a sin and he has to return the stolen item  back to its rightful owner and repent for his sin.
