Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I work in a shop. One customer mistakenly gave me more money than usual. I didn’t return his money. I spent that money. Now I’m feeling guilty about that. What should I do? Please help me…


A: Return the extra. Ask Allah Ta`ala to forgive you.

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