Repairing stolen items

Q: I was given a computer to repair by a certain person. From what I know of this person, this computer is most likely stolen or obtained through some doubtful means. Is it permissible to repair this computer and would the income be halaal?

Bismillaah

A: If you are more or less sure that it is stolen then do not repair it.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
