Taking money to pay sorcerers and never paying it to them

Q 2: My sister has been suffering from a disease caused by a defect in the nerves, and the doctor refused to allow her to stay longer in hospital, and so we turned to charlatans who prepared some exotic rituals for her. While these rituals were being performed, our neighbor came by and said to these charlatans that if her daughter was cured, she would reward them. After a long time she came to me with a sum of money and asked me to give it to these charlatans, but I did not, because I could not find them and I did not exert any effort to deliver this money to them. What should I do?

A: You should return the money to the woman who gave it to you or to her heirs, and do not pay it to the charlatan, as it is not lawfully his.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
