Being unable to find the owner of a borrowed item

Q: I went to Nizaamuddeen markaz to attend a mashwara. One brother gave me a pen to me to write. After sometime I forgot to give the pen to that brother [even his face also I don’t remember now]. Give me a solution, what must I do?


A: Try your best to locate the person. If you cannot then you may give the pen to some poor deserving person.

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