Buying back a gift from someone other than the one to whom it was given
A man gave a car to another man for nothing in return, and the one to whom it was given sold it to a third person. The first owner wants to buy it back from the other person who bought it. Is this permissible?.
Praise be to Allaah.
It is permissible to buy back a gift in the manner described, because the giver is buying it from someone other than the one to whom it was given.
And Allaah is the Source of strength.
