What Is the Proper Way to Repent From a Theft?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: As salam Alaykum,

I have stolen something from a franchise but I do not know the value of it.

What should I do to repent from my sin?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

Consider finding the market value of the item online, for instance, and then add a reasonably safe amount, and return that to the company with an apology.

With that, you need to repent for your mistake. [see:A Reader on Tawba (Repentance)]
