Benefit: Ridding Oneself of Money Earned by Ḥarām Means
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
The shaykh (حفظه الله) responded by saying:
Upon you is to estimate [the quantity] of ḥarām money you possess, and to be cautious [when doing so by overestimating as opposed to underestimating if it were that you were uncertain of the exact quantity of ḥarām money you possessed]. Then distribute it to the poor, not as charity, [but rather,] as ḥarām money you are ridding yourself of. So as to absolve yourself [from it], so that this money will be like money which has no owner. Therefore, it is given to the poor and needy.
