|Question ID 2495 - Major Sins
A few days i left my home to visit my father. There were several women in my home, along with my wife. I left a man who i saw as a brother with them as guardian, should anyone try to break in or cause any other harm.
This man drank alcohol and in his drunkenness entered the room of a woman and touched her private parts, after wich he entered the room of my wife and touched her vagina.
The women chased him away. They left the home, went to the home of this man and took from his house 1200€ cash, several expensive mobile phones and papers. At that time i was not aware of this.
The day after, they told me everything.
I met with the man, and Wallahi i was about to break every bone in his body. He was crying and begged my forgiveness. I remembered our history together so i let him go without killing him, after he took an oath he will never again show his face to me or my family.
He has no money left and no papers. The man merits punishment but i do not agree to keep the things. My family however, insists and has threatened me that if i am a real man i will not give it back.
Ya sheikh, am i entitled to kill this man? Am i entitled to destroy his life by informing his mother and father and his wife? What about the items the woman took from him. Do i keep it as compensation? as punishment? I feel i am going crazy ya sheikh and without guidance i may do what so many other men would already have done.
Allah jazeek bekheir
|Answer:- This man has committed sinful acts and he was drunk, but you are not
allowed to kill him or destroy his life. Leave him to Allah who is The Best
Give him back his money and items because you can not do wrong countering
his wrong act.
You have mistaken to leave a man of such low character with your wife at
home. You should be careful in the future.
