would this be sufficicent enough or do i have to pay him back?

Please answer my question asap, i hate myself for doing this sin


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Dear Brother,

You took money from your uncle without telling him. That was theft.

You regretted your action and informed your uncle. He has accepted your apology.

In future, experience caution and never commit theft again.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
