Returning stolen money to the estate of the deceased
Q: I have stolen my grandfathers money in my childhood but now my grandfather is not with us. I don’t remember the exact amount. Now what should I do? How should I repay it?
To the best of your ability try to estimate the amount you had taken. As a precaution it is better to estimate a little extra. Thereafter you should return the amount to the estate of your grandfather. The money will have to then be distributed among the heirs according to the stipulated shares of inheritance.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
