You Dont Deserve This Money

A colleague and I were commissioned to do a job somewhere for a period of four days. I didnt go with him though, and I later received compensation for that commission. Can I spend that money or not? If I cant spend it on myself, can I spend it on office supplies I need for work?

It is incumbent upon you to return that money because you didnt do what you have been asked to do. If that is not possible, you must spend it on a good cause, such as charity for the poor. You must ask Allaah Almighty to forgive you, and you must repent and not repeat that act again.
