    Stealing in ignorance

    Report bad ads?

    Assalamualaikum

    If a person stole something and didn’t know that stealing was haraam would it be accounted as a sin? And could I have some proof of this?

    Re: Stealing in ignorance



    We would be held accountable for our ignorance, even if someone didn't know stealing is Haram. I'm sure they knew it was wrong? And whatever is wrong is most likely to be Haram. So I really don't see an excuse in the case of stealing. It is not one of those issues that people get themselves into without really knowing the islamic ruling behind it. I.e breaking fast in Ramadan (for a basic example) Stealing is as clear as white and black to be wrong (haram).

    But then again everything goes back to what is in our hearts (Which only Allah can know). One should repent and know that Allah is the most merciful. But what was stolen should be given back.

    Here is a fatwa

    Three simple rules in life:

    1) If you do not go after what you want, you will never have it
    2) If you don't ask, the answer will always be no.
    3) If you do not step forward, you'll always be in the same place

    Of course some less informed muslim might do haram things without knowing it is haram. But stealing is such a basic bad things, no one (except maybe a young child) may truly not know that stealing is forbidden.
