I am outside a shop and I find a wallet on the step of a shop and take out money in dollars. I am then walking with a known friend away after realising we have stolen money. We are chased by police and we run into a shop and I throw away a diamond ring which I somehow have stolen as well and then I lock myself in a room. Police come in and I tell them I am about to read salaah and they leave me alone. I have hidden the money and am staring at the musallah and then I am taken away by police and I am thinking I should have picked up the money when I had the chance.
audhu billah mina ‘sh-shaytani ‘r-rajeem,
Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem,
Try to avoid being out and about without a good reason, as you may be sucked into fitna and confusion. Keep to your home and musallah for protection. And Allah knows best.
