Istiftaat > Stealing from foreigners
Print out

Q: We heard that it is not prohibited to steal the foreigners because they drink wine? 

A: That is not true. It is impermissible to steal any peaceful person who respects others' honor and money, even if he is an unbeliever. Only those who fight Muslims do not have such immunity." Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loves those who are just" (60:8).
