How do I repay my bus fare cheating?      

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Not Assigned

In the past I used to pay half of the bus fare rather than all of it. This would occur very often and I would think nothing of it at the time. I do not know the amount that I have to pay the company, since this occurred over a period of 6-7 years, when I attended school and college. Sometimes I would pay the full fare and at other times only half of it, and getting off the bus later than I should be. How do I pay back this ”unknown” amount?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

By making a reasoned estimate. Alternatively, you can contact the relevant department of your area’s transport authorities and ask whether they waive the debt.

However, re-paying it, even if in a gradual manner, is the way of taqwa and deen.

And Allah alone gives success.
