According to different Hadith from Imam Sadiq a.s. and other Ahl ul bayt there are 19 preconditions for amputating hand of a thief. If any of these preconditions are not met the hand should not be cut but still the thief has other punishments. Also, the cut of hand should be from end of fingers and the palm of hand should remain. According to The Twenty-...

No, it's not right to buy that phone (that you know is a lost phone). If you didn't know the truth it would have been OK to buy it, but now that you know it's 100% wrong to buy it.

The hadith indeed is compilled in sunan al-Bayhaqi al-Kubra (via two chains he seems to mention to other chains of the hadith of Sufyan a-Thawri via at-Tabarani and abi Hatim, so maybe both have quoted it in some of their books too, I could find a quote here that it is in at-Tabarni's al-Kabir with a slightly different wording), al-Mustdrak of al-Hakim (on ...

In my opinion do not buy it as your friend can return this mobile to the real person as the mobile phone will have contact numbers and sim in it, He did not try to return this, So it may also considered as theft. Consider if your mobile lost somewhere and the person who found your mobile did not return to you saying he found it on the road I will not return ...

قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص رُفِعَ الْقَلَمُ عَنْ ثَلَاثَةٍ عَنِ النَّائِمِ حَتَّى يَسْتَيْقِظَ وَ عَنِ الْمَجْنُونِ حَتَّى يُفِيقَ وَ عَنِ الطِّفْلِ حَتَّى يَحْتَلِمَ The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: The pen of responsibility has been lifted from three groups: from sleepers until they wake up, from the insane until they are recovered and from children ...

There are a lot of questions here. If your friend is stealing (because it is undeniably stealing) and you know it, and you eat what he stole, then yes, it is forbidden. I might add "obviously". I didn't understand what you meant by discount. If you mean there are some discount cards that your friend can distribute as it pleases him, and he gives you all ...

I am assuming that you are asking about the legal punishment that is enforced by the state, as otherwise there is no prescribed way to educate or discipline children. I think parents might try to adequately convey the seriousness of your action, but they will not any give any harsh punishment. The Hadd punishment for theft is cutting the hand: والسارق ...

here's two things to consider. firstly, the sin of stealing something, not the stolen object itself. When mentioned "all sins are forgiven", that includes this sin. Then, the stolen object itself. The owner is and will be the owner as long as he don't handed over the ownership wilfully. So, the stolen object has to be returned as it was taken, or the ...

As a general Islamic rule, (even if you stole something before the age of puberty), a person who has stolen something, he/she is Zamen (responsible) for the thing that has stolen. Actually he ought to give back it to its owner. In the case that the thing (money or...) has missed, it ought to be given to them at the same amount of the thing which has been ...

A person can do what they must to survive, to avert death.. even if that means stealing food when in dire situations. It's even reported that the rightly guided caliph Umar ibn Al Khattab رضي الله عنه said, "do not cut the hand of the thief who steals dates in the year of famine". If there was no leniency, this would not have been his verdict; rather he ...

The Hadd punishment for theft is enforced on the fulfillment of various conditions regarding the thief, the victim, the object and the location in which the object was kept. It is waived under certain circumstances and if it is waived it may be replaced with a Ta'zir punishment, and the thief will also be liable to compensate the victim. Poverty does not a ...

In general any individual involved in a sinful act or assists in a sinful act will be accountable to varying degrees. The primary reason for this is holding onto the item is encouraging the haram behaviour. Refusing it shows that you do not condone such a thing.

Stealing from your thief (aside from recovering your own football) is not a good idea (Islamically, legally, or practically). Theft is a sin---this is uncontested. So the question is essentially whether or not this kind of "revenge theft" is permissible. This fatwa indicates a lack of consensus on the matter: Imam Haskafi (Allah have mercy on him) ...

you are not responsible for that. the quran states: And no soul earns evil but only against itself; nor does any bearer of burden bear the burden of another. Quran 6:164 as long as you are not the one who stole it and not 100% sure, if its stolen and whom it has been stolen from, you will not be held accountable. But if you come to know its stolen and ...

There is something called Tazeer, where a state or court can declare a punishment for a crime that doesn't have a divinely sanctioned punishment. In practice most Islamic countries have legislation to deal with such crimes, and punishments may include imprisonment and fines. Most of the listed crimes would come under harming another person's property, which ...

Every soul, for what it has earned, will be retained (74:38) Here are two issues so each party would be blamed for what they are responsible for, you for stealing and those who are corrupt for their corruption (read for example in sahih al-Bukhari about stealing from public funds or doing wrong with it in any way). The government is responsible for what ...

Your former martial arts teacher is not the only person in the world. It is good that you realized you did something wrong. If you cannot find him, though, do some good deeds to other people, even related to your sin. Explain to some Kids that don't know it that stealing is bad. Give some money to people in need. Even though I don't know your teacher, I am ...

According to my perception .. stealing is haram. But when it became permissible legal in the game (there is no benefit at all) But sharpen the brain to be able to steal in the game will be the same as the reality of where we are we accustom our minds to think a bad thing and it will adversely impact on the mental and emotional. Besides playing games that ...

Hadd punishments can't be prescribed for piracy because this kind of theft is not like normal theft. There is no witness for this. The only evidence is the computer records. The Islamic goverments will enforce tazir punishments for such issues. But the person may avert the punishment by paying blood money to the affected person or company.
