5:39 But if the thief repents after his crime, and amends his conduct, Allah turneth to him in forgiveness

1 min read

But if the thief repents after his crime, and amends his conduct, Allah turneth to him in forgiveness; for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

I.e., by restituting the stolen goods before being apprehended by the authorities (Manor VI,
382)
