Lost and Found?


I recently lost some of my own money and that got me thinking what happen if you find something? What does Islam says about finding items that doesn’t belong to you?


No one can answer better than the Messenger of Allah (saws) who was asked about lost gold and silver. He said, “Know the details of the purse and the string, then announce it for a year. If no one claims it, then dispose of it, and it is like a trust in your hands. Then if the owner comes along someday, give it to him.”
