I would like to ask about stolen items at home. All have consumed and used. The items are clothes and foods. People say is to return to the owner but I don't see how it works cause the items are already been used and consumed. Are there any solutions by this? Replace them or anything? Need help urgent!
If the stolen goods (items) have already been used then you must either ask for forgiveness from the original owners or their heirs or give them something in return that would be considered equatable compensation.
And Allah knows best.
