He stole some public property which was then stolen from him

Question

A man stole something from a public facility in a kaafir country, then it was stolen from him. Does he have to repay its value?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

We put this question to Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Jibreen (may Allaah preserve him), who answered as follows:

He is not liable for anything; it is sufficient for him to repent. And Allaah knows best.
