My brother steals


Salam, my brother is taking money out from a box of money which we have in our house and we think that he does not return it. This money that my family saves goes to the poor and sadaqah. What can we do because is he cannot acces this then he steals from his family.


wa `alaykum salam,

Your brother has a condition that requires corrective action. There is no harm in your family reporting his activities to the police if you feel incapable of handling his behaviour. It also does not necessarily mean you want the police to put him in jail or a corrective facility (unless the police wants to). Perhaps they can assist your family on the rehabilitation and counselling where required. On your end, give him the support he needs and keep praying for him. Insha-Allah, Mawlana Shaykh Hisham will pray for your family.
