Compensating for using ebucks in the past

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: In the past, I have earned and used Ebucks for car hire and purchasing plane tickets. Recently, I read that ebucks is impermissible. What can I do to compensate for the ebucks that I used in the past? Also, how I can correctly dispose of the ebucks earned thus far as I cannot get the cash to give it away with the intention of no thawaab? 


A: Give the equivalent of it in charity.

Let some poor person use it to buy something.

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