  • Diyat On An Unknown Event – Please Guide For Some Person

    Posted by Rehman Ali on April 27, 2024 at 1:14 am

    Assalamu Alaikum, hope you all are well. I have a question to ask for someone. What if Mr X does not know who he hit him (Mr. Y) by mistake (while saving his own life on the road from 2 people who were chasing him for his car or to hurt him), Mr. Y gets struck with the side of his car on the round about while Mr. X was escaping from potential trouble.

    Now Mr. X wants to pay for this unintentional sin, what will be the procedure?:

    a) he does not know whether Mr. Y was hurt or not, whether died or not. he know nothing and cannot be sure about it today. What will be the process of repentance? Diyat kese di jaygi is ki..

    b) Will he actually be accountable? because neither he wanted to hurt anyone, instead he wanted to save himself.

    c) in the best possible case to be forgiven in the hereafter without any trouble, what should Mr. X do?

    1 More thing, if Diyat deni he hogi, to who should Mr. X give it to? Because now going back to find that person/his family seems impossible after years. What can be best done here to prevent from Akhirat Accountability? Also, it cannot be sure know whether he was injured or not, or was dead.

    Could you please explain what are the usages of fatwa?

    Also, how one should determine if the person who got hit was even injured or not, or what happened to him is unknown for a reason that the driver was saving his life from the people who were chasing him, so he could not stop. how should he determine the diyat and who should he give it now?

    Fatwa is a legal opinion given by scholars who are well versed in Islamic education and legal matters

    Diyat is given when the case is settled by the court.

    It is easy to investigate nowadays what happened on a date, in that place. The police would have had the record if anything serious happened.

    If nothing is known, it means nothing serious happened. In that case one may ask for forgiveness from God.
