Returning stolen money

Q: I took/stole some money when I was much younger and I am not sure whether I took zakaat or lillah money. Now when I am going to put the money back, what must I write on the envelope (because I’m not sure what money it was).


A: You do not have to write anything. Just return the money to the rightful owner.

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