Purchaser paying the rest of the price to the seller after abstaining from paying it
Q: I was working in the Northern Province in 1398 AH and I bought a car from an agency for 26,600 riyals. I paid 20,000 riyals and asked for a two month extension for the remaining 6,600 riyals. After the two months elapsed, I had an evil idea not to pay the rest of the money. Later on, my employer moved to (Part No. 14; Page No. 22) the Southern Province, but I kept feeling uncomfortable for not paying the remaining money. I was discharged from work in 1405 AH and went to
to receive my financial dues. Then I traveled directly from
to the Northern Province to see the agency owner. When I arrived at the agency, I was told that he had closed it and owned a gold shop in the town. I went to the town looking for him but I was told that the gold business is owned by his brother while he had a workshop in another street, but he was abroad at the time. I returned to the airport with the money in my pocket and traveled to
and later to the south. I do not know his exact address and cannot face him, fearing he may be aggressive with me. In the beginning, I was determined to find him and searched for him but I did not find him. Please guide me to the correct action in this regard. May Allah reward you.
You can easily get his address from his brother, the owner of the gold shop, whom you mentioned and you must send him the money, even through a bank. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
