QUESTION:

I am a muqqalid of Ayat. Seestani
My question is, I found something lying on the ground unattended, What
should I do with it ? (Actually I mean Money or any valuables)


ANSWER:

I refer you to Rule No 2573 in Islamic Laws* (English version) pg. 477

"Amy lost property other than an animal, which does not bear any sign by
means of which it may be possible to locate its owner, irrespective of
whether it's value is less then a dirham (12.6 chickpeas of coined silver)
or not, can be kept for himself by one who finds it, but the recommended
precaution is that he gives it away as sadaqa on behalf of the owner,
whoever he may be."
