Q 16: What is the ruling
on causing unintentional damage to the items in a house when preventing an accident from taking place?
Should the items be compensated for whether they are lawful or not?
Whatever is unintentionally damaged in houses and shops when preventing an accident, is not under guarantee of compensation because the attempt to prevent (Part No. 14; Page No. 183) the accident and its consequences are permitted and the consequences of a permitted action do not guarantee compensation. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
