Can I Keep Gifts That I Received in a Haram Relationship?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org


Can I keep gifts that I received in a haram relationship?


Wa ‘alaykum assalam wa rahmatullah wa barkatuh.

I pray you are well.

Yes, it is permitted to keep and use the gifted item – providing its usage is otherwise halal. The acceptance of the gift and the relationship are separate matters. The impermissibility of the relationship has no bearing on the usage of the gift now. If the given was given and received willingly, it is permissible to keep. [Quduri, Matan al-Quduri]

Alhamdulillah, being given the ability to repent was a gift for this person. He should ask Allah for protection from being in the same situation again and avoid the paths that lead there.

May Allah grant you the best of both worlds.
