It is like guaranteeing an unknown thing

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?

A: 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.
