A neighboring house burnt down
along with everything inside it. There was some silver jewelry but the house owners threw everything away. My question is: Can we take the silver or should we give it back to them?
If the house owners have thrown away the silver deliberately, having no desire for it, there is no wrong in taking it, but if they are unaware of it, you have to give it back to them.
