عن أبي هريرة عن النبي -صلى الله عليه وسلم- قال: «لعن الله السارق، يسرق البَيْضَةَ فَتُقْطَعُ يده، ويسرِقُ الحَبْلَ فَتُقْطَعُ يَدُهُ».
[صحيح.] - [متفق عليه.]
المزيــد ...

Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) said: "May Allah curse the thief who steals an egg and his hand is cut off for that, and he steals a rope and his hand is cut off for that."
[Sahih/Authentic] - [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Explanation

The Hadīth indicates that the curse, which is being expelled and distanced from Allah’s mercy, is applicable to thieves. This is because a thief steals insignificant things like an egg and a rope and becomes accustomed to stealing small things and ends up stealing bigger things. This causes his hand to be cut off, and he deserves the invocation of curse which the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) made against him, or the information that he is cursed.
