Money acquired through a Haraam Source

Q: Is it permissible to eat of the money of someone which his girlfriend gave him?

A: Being involved in a Haraam relationship with a girl is impermissible and displeasing to Allah Ta’aala. One should immediately break off the relationship. Since the money has been obtained through haraam means it should be returned to the one who had given it.

عن عقبة بن عامر : أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم قال إياكم والدخول على النساء فقال رجل من الأنصار يا رسول الله ! أفرأيت الحمو ؟ قال الحمو الموت قال وفي الباب عن عمر و جابر و عمرو بن العاص

قال أبو عيسى حديث عقبة بن عامر حديث حسن صحيح وإنما معنى كراهية لدخول على النساء على نحو ما روي عن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم قال لا يخلون رجلا بامرأة إلا كان ثالثهما الشيطان. (ترمذي رقم 1171)
