Forgetting if one took loans from people

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I am worried that I may have obtained some loans from different people. These loans may range from 1 rupee to 1000 rupees which is not much money. I do not remember if there are any loans on me or not. What do you say about this situation?


A: If you cannot remember, then enquire from those regarding whom you are doubting whether you had taken loans from.

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