Prohibition of using others wealth

Hadith 28, Men who spend out the property of Allah without due right will go to the Fire on the Day of Judgement (Bukhari)


A: This narration is often used regarding those who have been made responsible over the wealth of others, and the weight of that trust upon them which means that they should not spend from that except what is required and necessary.

C: It is this sense of accountability which led to leaders such as Umar bin al-Khattab (ra) being fearful over even the personal use of a candle purchased with the money of the state, as compared to the contemporary rulers all over the World who subjugate the resources of the people for their own personal benefit and pleasure while depriving the nation at large of basic services.
