Profit Gained From Ill-gotten Money. by Taamas111 (m): 2:58pm on January 12

Assalaamu Alaikum. One person who earned
some money by cheating somebody and then
with that money he started a business and
the business grew well and he has a lot of
money. Later he gave back the money to
whom he cheated. His claim is that now
whatever the wealth he has is clean, but I
don’t think so. Please enlighten us with the
truth. Jazaakumullaahu khairan

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

The scholars differed in opinion about
the profit which results from ill-gotten
money, whether it is the person who took
this money who deserves it, or the person
from whom this money was taken, or that it
should be divided amongst them equally. It
appears that the third opinion is the most
preponderant and the most just, because the
profit is a result of the money of the first
person and the result of the work of the
second person, so the profit should not be
given to only one person. Rather, the profit
should be divided between the two exactly as
if they were co-partners.

This third opinion is the one by which 'Umar
may Allah be pleased with him, ruled, and
this is the choice of Ibn Taymiyyah .

Allah Knows best.
