He stole money and gave it to his father


A boy stole some money, and gave it to his father. Then his father died and did not leave anything behind. Does the son have to pay it back once he reaches the age of puberty?


Praise be to Allah.

Praise be to Allaah.

Yes, he has to pay it back. And Allaah knows best.
