Repenting and getting rid of money gained from trading in drugs

A: This man, and the likes of him, should get rid of his ill-gotten money by spending them in charity. For example, he can give it as Sadaqah (voluntary charity) to the poor, or he can use it in helping the Mujahidun (those striving in the cause of Allah), the debtors who are unable to pay off their debts, or those who cannot afford expenses of marriage, and so on. Another way of getting rid of this ill-gotten money in ways that are beneficial to Muslims is to make these buildings, plots of land, and farms as Waqf (endowment) for Masjids (mosques), Mu'adhins (callers to Prayer), and Imams (those who lead congregational Prayer). As for his marriage contract, it is valid but he should get rid of a lawful amount of money equivalent to the Mahr he paid to his wife and spend it in the above-mentioned charitable ways of disposition or something like that. He should turn to Allah in sincere repentance and be certain that Allah (Part No. 14; Page No. 60) will compensate him for this ill-gotten money, because of his fear of Him and sincere repentance. Allah (Glorified be He) says: And whosoever fears Allâh and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty). And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine. Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He) also says: ...and whosoever fears Allâh and keeps his duty to Him, He will make his matter easy for him. May Allah guide him and us to sincere repentance and accept it, for He is All-Hearer, Ever Near. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
