The Pen is Lifted From Three People

Hadith on Responsibility: The pen is lifted from three people

Ali ibn Abi Talib رضي الله عنه reported: The Messenger of Allah, صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم , said, “The pen is lifted from three people:

A sleeping person until he awakens,

A child until he becomes an adult, and

An insane person until he regains his sanity.”

In another narration, the Prophet said, “A young boy until he reaches puberty.”
