Beware of Stealing

Abdullah bin Amr bin Al-as (radi Allahu anhum) reported: A man named Kirkirah, who was in charge of the personal effects of the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) passed away and the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “He is in the (Hell) Fire.” Some people went to his house looking for its cause and found there a cloak that he had stolen.

[Sahih al-Bukhari]


The Hadith shows that stealing and breach of trust fall in the category of major sins for which one can be consigned to Hell.

And Allah Knows Best!
