Eating a piece of chocolate that one was supposed to give to someone else

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My one friend gave me a piece of chocolate and told me to give it to his friend who was sitting close to me but instead I ate the piece of chocolate. The friend who was supposed to get the chocolate didn’t even know he was supposed to get it and the friend who gave the chocolate saw me eat it but didn’t say anything. Do I have to repay the friend who was supposed to get the chocolate?


A: If the giver was happy with you eating it you do not have to repay.

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