When I was infront of the mosque near by accomodation in Qatar, I found 1500 Indian money(INR). Since I did'nt know the islamic ruling on the money found on road, I thought I will give this money for charity in India. But, when I read about the ruling on that, I am little worried. Announcing at the place that I got money will be difficult. because of language problems. Also. I can't give it for charity here in Qatar because its indian money. So in this situation wgat is the best thing to do? Is it permissible to replace it from where I got the money? Kindly suggest the best. Thanks in Advance Jazakallah khair Assalamu alikum
Read the Islamic ruling here.
If I were you, I'd announce it for a year (in both Arabic and Indian language - asking for help from native speakers as needed) and if no one claims it then get it exchanged for Qatari money and give it in charity on the owner's behalf. If the owner later shows up, give him an equivalent in his money back and the charity will then be on my behalf.
