Theft is considered to be one of the most ancient crimes against properties and ownership to which human societies have engaged for a very long time. This crime has been intensively punished every time and everywhere and the people who committed such a crime have been treated with many kinds of heavy punishments. In any case, in many law systems theft from relatives is treated in a friendly way. In the Islamic criminal law this friendly way of treatment can also be seen concerning parents who steal from their children but with some differences. The twelver Shiite jurisprudents hold that this friendly way of treatment is limited to fathers and cannot be applied as to mothers. The present essay would indicate that lawfulness of father’s using properties of his children is not absolute but rather is conditional first, and should mothers steal from their children they would be treated as fathers not being punished for that secondly.
