A person found a sheep in the street and rescued it from death but did not announce it

Q 2: A person found a sheep and took it in his car. It was very thirsty and his aunt gave it water and fed it. However, she did not announce the sheep, because she lived in the desert and we are all Bedouins. The sheep has grown and produced many rams and about half of our sheep are from its offspring. What should the woman do? May Allah have mercy on you.

A: You had to announce about the sheep for one year in the areas around the place where you found it. If its owner identifies it, he should take it; otherwise, the finder may take it to his possession. As a long period has elapsed and you did not announce the sheep, it is obligatory on you to give its price and the price of its offspring in charity on behalf of its owner. If its owner comes one day, he should be given the price of his lost sheep and the charity will be counted for the one who found it.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
