Fiqh: Found Property
Alhamdolillah, last few months we have had quite a few guest stay at our house. We have found some jewelry pieces like Aqeeq and Dure Najaf rings and some other costume jewelry in the house. We sent pictures to all our guests but no one is claiming anything. One of the guest has offered to buy one of the rings. Do we have the right to sell it? What do we do with these items? If we were to sell it, we would donate or give as Sadka the money as if it was a donation from the unknown owner. Kindly advise. JAK
About 2 years ago I found some money, I kept it while expecting that one day I will find the owner and give them back. After 2 years I think I will never find the owner of this money. What should I do with it? Should I give it to someone as sadaqah or donate to charity or hand over to the police? What is the right thing to do in this situation?
