Money taken unjustly: What to do if one can’t find the person?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by SunniPath Answer Service Team

If someone accepts Islam, all his are forgiven right? What about taking the money of someone unjustly? Would he have to pay that person back? When if he can’t find that person anymore?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
