Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

My father was robbed at gunpoint last week outside his check cashing and money transfer store and the robbers took $150,000 in checks and $6200 in cash. Alhumdullilah, my father was not hurt but the checks that they stole are worthless to the robbers because they cannot be cashed. Is there any specific dua we can recite to have the checks found by somebody or returned to us? Is there anything else we should do?

Also, we had planned on making Hajj this year and had already made two payments to the travel agency but now we cannot afford it and need our money back. The travel agency is refusing to give us our first payment back citing that it was nonrefundable. Is this right?

Answer

In the name of Allāh, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Assalāmu ῾alaykum wa Rahmatullāhi Wabarakātuh

 

  1. Read the following dua to find your missed items.

وعن ابن عمر عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم في الضالة أنه يقول:

اللَّهُمَّ رَادَّ الضَّالَّةِ , وَهَادِيَ الضَّلالَةِ تَهْدِي مِنَ الضَّلالَةِ ,
 ارْدُدْ عَلَيَّ ضَالَّتِي بِقُدْرَتِكَ وَسُلْطَانِكَ , فَإِنَّهَا مِنْ عَطَائِكَ وَفَضْلِكَ

Allahumma Raadad Daalla, Wa Haadiya ad-dalala Tahdee min ad-dalalah
Urdud ῾ala Daalatee Biqudratika Wa sultanika, Fa innahaa min ῾ataa’ika Wa Fadlika

المعجم الكبير – (ج 12 / ص 340(

 

  1. If the condition was already stipulated before hand by the Travel Agency

or it is the normal practice of the Travel Agencies in your area that the first payment is non refundable, then the Travel Agency has the right to claim it. However, if such a condition is not there, and neither is it norm of the trade in your area, then we will require more information about the conditions in the actual contract.
