I’ve stolen money from my anty, but unable to return it but I’m planning to do so, will Allah accept my Sallah and dua because I do pray everyday.


Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

As a first step, you should apologize to your aunt, and mention that you will pay back, and work out a payment plan.

With that, you should implore Allah to forgive you.

Insha Allah, all your prayers and acts of worship will be accepted.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
