The Wealth of a Muslim is not Permissible to take except for that which he gives willingly – Sharh as-Sunnah | Dawud Burbank [Audio|En]


Sharh as-Sunnah : Lesson 73 : Point 122
Shaykh Fawzan | Dawud Burbank [Audio|English]

Imaam Barbahaaree rahimahullaah said:

Know, May Allah have mercy upon you! that the wealth of a Muslim is not permissible to take except for that which he gives willingly [1]. If a man has some wealth that was illegally acquired, then he is responsible for it. It is not permissible for anyone to take any thing from him, except with his permission. So perhaps he will repent and wish to restore it to its rightful owner, and you will have taken something unlawful.


[1] The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said,

“The wealth of a Muslim is not permissible except what he gives willingly.”

Reported by Ahmad and declared saheeh by Shaikh al-Albaanee (rahimahullaah) in Saheehul-Jaami’ (no.7539) and al-Irwaa’ (no.1459).
