Returning stolen items

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: How do I go about making things right after my mother in-law found out I stole from her? She told my husband to send me away and she never wants to see me again. Please help.


A: Ask for an apology and beg Allah Ta’ala’s forgiveness as well. You should also return to her what you had stolen from her.

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