Will a person who passed away while stealing enter Jannah?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I want to know that if a thief died while stealing, will he ever be able to go to Jannah? Please answer according to the Qur’an and authentic Hadith?


A: If he passed away in the state of Imaan and Allah Ta’ala does not forgive him for the sins he had committed, then after being punished in the Hereafter for his sins, he will go to Jannah.

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