If a person’s haraam money is stolen, does he have to dispose of it a second time?

A man had some stocks and shares in a riba-based bank, from which he earned money which he took and kept in his house. A thief entered and stole the money, then the man repented. Does he have to dispose of the money a second time?

Praise be to Allaah.

We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthyameen, may Allaah preserve him, who answered:

No, he does not have to do anything.

Question:

Is that because he has repented?

Answer:

Yes.

Question:

So we can say that because he has repented, he does not have to dispose of the money a second time?

Answer:

Yes, he does not have to do anything.

And Allaah knows best.

Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthyameen
