Q 1: In 1390 A.H. when I wanted to move from Yemen to Saudi Arabia, I asked two women to lend me one French Riyal each. They gave me their names and addresses at Mu`badah in Makkah. When I reached Makkah and I had enough money to repay this loan, I looked for these women but I failed. I have not found them till now. Please help me with this problem.

A: If the case is as you have mentioned, you may give this amount in charity on their behalf. If you meet them, you can tell them about what you did. If they are satisfied fine, if not, you must repay them and the reward of the charity will be granted to you In sha'a-Allah (if Allah wills). May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions!
