Imam Abu Dawud was born in Sistan, Iran in 817 CE and died in Basra, Iraq in 889 CE.



During his life, Imam Abu Dawud widely travelled to Iraq, Egypt, Syria, Hijaz, Tihamah, Khurasan, Nishapur and Marv to collect hadith. He was primarily interested in jurisprudence, and so his 4,800 Abu Dawud hadith collection focused on legal rulings.

1 This tradition has also been transmitted by Al Zuhri through a different chain of narrators. This version has "Abu Bakr said its due is the payment of zakat." He used the word "a rope of a Camel"
Abu Dawud | 3:1552
2 Abu Sa'id Al Khudri reported:

That the Apostle of Allaah(Peach be upon him) as saying No sadaqah(zakat) is payable on less than five camels, on less than five ounces of silver and on less than five camel loads(wasq).
Abu Dawud | 3:1553
3 Narrated AbuSa'id al-Khudri:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: There is no zakat payable (on grain or dates) on less than five camel-loads. The wasq (one camel-load) measures sixty sa' in weight.
Abu Dawud | 3:1554
4 Ibrahim said The wasq contained sixty sa's stamped with the stamp of Al Hajjaj.
Abu Dawud | 3:1555
5 Habib al-Maliki said:

A man said to Imran ibn Husayn: AbuNujayd, you narrate to us traditions whose basis we do not find in the Qur'an.

Thereupon, Imran got angry and said to the man: Do you find in the Qur'an that one dirham is due on forty dirhams (as Zakat), and one goat is due on such-and-such number of goats, and one camel will be due on such-and-such number of camels?

He replied: No.

He said: From whom did you take it? You took it from us, from the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him).

He mentioned many similar things.
Abu Dawud | 3:1556
6 Narrated Samurah ibn Jundub:

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) used to order us to pay the sadaqah (zakat) on what we prepared for trade.
Abu Dawud | 3:1557
7
'Amr bin Shu'aib on his father's authority said that his grandfather reported:


A woman came to the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) and she was accompanied by her daughter who wore two heavy gold bangles in her hands. He said to her: Do you pay zakat on them? She said: No. He then said: Are you pleased that Allah may put two bangles of fire on your hands?

Thereupon she took them off and placed them before the Prophet (Peach be upon him) saying: They are for Allah and His Apostle.
Abu Dawud | 3:1558
8 Narrated Umm Salamah, Ummul Mu'minin:

I used to wear gold ornaments. I asked: Is that a treasure (kanz), Messenger of Allah? He replied: whatever reaches a quantity on which zakat is payable is not a treasure (kanz) when the zakat is paid.
Abu Dawud | 3:1559
9 Narrated 'Abdallah bin Shaddad bin Al Had:

We entered upon A'ishah, wife of the Prophet (Peach be upon him). She said The Apostle of Allaah (Peach be upon him) entered upon me and saw two silver rings in my hand. He asked What is this, Aishah? I said I have made two ornaments myself for you, Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him). He asked Do you pay zakat on them? I said No or I said Whatever Allah willed. He said this is sufficient for you (to take you) to the Hell fire.
Abu Dawud | 3:1560
10 The aforesaid tradition has also been narrated by 'Umar bin Ya'la through a different chain of narrators, like the tradition of ring. Sufyan, a narrator, was asked How do you pay zakat on it. He said You may combine it with other (ornaments).
Abu Dawud | 3:1561
11 Narrated Hammad:

I took a letter from Thumamah bin 'Abd Allah bin Anas. He presumed that Abu Bakr had written it for Anas when he sent him (to Al Bahrain) as a collector of zakat. This (letter) was stamped with the stamp of the Messenger of Allah(Peach be upon him) and was written by Abu Bakr for him(Anas). This letter goes "This is the obligatory sadaqah(zakat) which the Messenger of Allah(Peach be upon him) imposed on Muslims which Allah commanded his Prophet(Peach be upon him) to impose. Those Muslims who are asked for the proper amount must give it, but those who are asked for more than that must not give it. For less than twenty five Camels a goat is to be given for every five Camels. When they reach twenty five to thirty five, a she Camel in her second year is to be given. If there is no she Camel in her second year, a male Camel in its third year is to be given. When they reach thirty six to forty five, a she Camel in her third year is to be given. When they reach forty six to sixty , a she Camel in her fourth year which is ready to be covered by a stallion is to be given. When they reach sixty one to seventy five, a she Camel in her fifth year is to be given. When they reach seventy six to ninety, two she Camel in their third year are to be given. When they reach ninety one to a hundred and twenty, two she Camels in their fourth year are ready to be covered by a stallion are to be given. When they exceed a hundred and twenty, a she Camel in her third year is to be given for every forty and a she Camel in her fourth year for every fifty(Camels). In case the ages of the Camel vary in the payment of obligatory sadaqah(zakat) If anyone whose Camels reach the number on which a she Camel in her fifth year is payable does not possess one but possess one in her fourth year, that will be accepted from him along with two goats if he can conveniently give them, or else twenty dirhams. If anyone whose Camels reach the number on which a she Camel in her fourth year is payable does not possess but possesses one in her fifth year, that will be accepted from him, and the collector must give him twenty dirhams or two goats. If anyone whose Camels reach the number on which a she Camel in her fourth year is payable possesses only one in her third year, that will be accepted from him."

Abu Dawud said From here I could not retain accurately from Musa as I liked "And he must give along with it two goats if he can conveniently give them, or else twenty dirhams. If anyone whose Camels reach the number on which a she Camel in her third year is payable possesses only one in her fourth year, that will be accepted from him."
Abu Dawud said (I was doubtful) up to here, and retained correctly onward "and the collector must give him twenty dirhams or two goats. If anyone whose Camels reach the number on which a she Camel in her third year is payable does not possess one but possesses one in her second year, that will be accepted from him, but he must give two goats or twenty dirhams. Anyone whose Camels reach the number on which a she Camel in her second year is payable does not possess one but possesses a male Camel in its third year, that will be accepted from him, and nothing extra will be demanded along with it. If anyone possesses only four Camels, no zakat will be payable on them unless their owner wishes. If the numbers of the pasturing goats reach forty to one hundred and twenty, one goat is to be given. Over one hundred and twenty up to two hundred, two goats are to be given. If they exceed two hundred reaching three hundred, three goats are to be given. If they exceed three hundred, a goat is to be for every hundred. An old sheep, one with a defect in the eye, or a male goat is not to be accepted as sadaqah (zakat) unless the collector wishes. Those which are in separate flocks are not to be brought together and those which are in one flock are not to be separated from fear of sadaqah(zakat). Regarding what belongs to two partners, they can make claims for restitution from one another with equity, If a man's pasturing animals are less than forty, no sadaqah(zakat) is due on them unless their owner wishes. On sliver dirhams a fortieth is payable, but if there are only a hundred and ninety, nothing is payable unless their owner wishes."
Abu Dawud | 3:1562
12 Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar:

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) wrote a letter about sadaqah (zakat) but he died before he could send it to his governors. He had kept it with his sword. So AbuBakr acted upon it till he died, and then Umar acted upon it till he died.

It contained: "For five camels one goat is to be given; for ten camels two goats are to be given; for fifteen camels three goats are to be given; for twenty camels four goats are to be given; for twenty-five to thirty-five camels a she-camel in her second year is to be given. If the number exceeds by one up to seventy camels, a she-camel in her fourth year is to be given; if they exceed by one up to seventy-five camels, a she-camel in her fifth year is to be given; if they exceed by one up to ninety camels, two she-camels in their third year are to be given; if they exceed by one up to one hundred and twenty, two she-camels in their fourth year are to be given. If the camels are more than this, a she-camel in her fourth year is to be given for every fifty camels, and a she-camel in her third year is to be given for every forty camels.

For forty to one hundred and twenty goats one goat is to be given; if they exceed by one up to two hundred, two goats are to be given. If they exceed by one up to three hundred, three goats are to be given; if the goats are more than this, one goat for every hundred goats is to be given. Nothing is payable until they reach one hundred. Those which are in one flock are not to be separated, and those which are in separate flocks are not be brought together from fear of sadaqah (zakat). Regarding that which belongs to two partners, they can make claims for restitution from each other with equity. An old goat and a defective one are not to be accepted as sadaqah (zakat)."

Az-Zuhri said: When the collector comes, the goats will be apportioned into three flocks: one containing bad, the second good, and the third moderate. The collector will take zakat from the moderate. Az-Zuhri did not mention the cows (to be apportioned in three flocks).
Abu Dawud | 3:1563
13 Therefore said tradition has also been transmitted by Sufyan bin Husain through a different chain of narrators and to the same effect. This version adds "If there is no she Camel in her second year, a she Camel in her third year is to be given." This does not mention the words of Al Zuhri.
Abu Dawud | 3:1564
14 Ibn Shihab (Al Zuhri) said This is the copy of the letter of the Messenger of Allah(Peach be upon him), which he had written about sadaqah(zakat). This was in the custody of the descendants of 'Umar bin Al Khattab. Ibn Shihab said Salim bin Abdallah bin Umar read it to me and I memorized it properly. Umar bin Abdul Aziz got it copied from 'Abdallah, 'Abdallah bin Umar and Salim bin 'Abdallah bin 'Umar. He (Ibn Shihab) then narrated the tradition like the former(i.e., up to one hundred and twenty camels). He further said if they (the camels) reach one hundred and twenty one to one hundred and twenty nine, three she camels in their third year are to be given. When they reach one hundred and thirty to one hundred and thirty nine, two she camels in their third year and one she Camel in her fourth year are to be given. When they reach one hundred and forty to one hundred and forty nine, two she camels in their fourth year and one she Camel in her third year are to be given. When they reach one hundred and fifty to one hundred and fifty nine, three she camels in their fourth year are to be given. When they reach one hundred and sixty to one hundred and sixty nine four she camels in their fourth year are to be given. When they reach one hundred and seventy to one hundred and seventy nine, three she camels in their third year and one she Camel in her fourth year are to be given. When they reach one hundred and eighty to one hundred and eighty nine, two she camels in their fourth year and two she Camel in their third year are to be given. When they reach one hundred and ninety to one hundred and ninety nine, three she camels in their fourth year and one she Camel in her third year are to be given. When they reach two hundred, four she camels in their fourth year or five she Camels in their third year, camels of whichever age are available, are to be accepted.
For the pasturing goats, he narrated the tradition similar to that transmitted by Sufyan bin Husain. This version adds "An old goat, one with defect in the eye or a male goat is not to be accepted in sadaqah(zakat) unless the collector wishes."
Abu Dawud | 3:1565
15 Narrated Malik:

The statement of Umar bin Al Khattab "Those which are in separate flocks are not to be brought together and those which are in one flock are not to be separated" means Two persons had forty goats each ; when the collector came they brought them together in one flock so that only one goat could be given. The phrase "those which are in one flock are not to be separated" means If two partners possessed one hundred and one goats each, three goats were to be given by each of them. When the collector came they separated their goats. Thus only one goat was to be given by each of them. This is what I heard on this subject.
Abu Dawud | 3:1566
16 Al-Harith al-A'war reported from Ali. Zuhayr said:

I think, the Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: "Pay a fortieth. A dirham is payable on every forty, but you are not liable for payment until you have accumulated two hundred dirhams. When you have two hundred dirhams, five dirhams are payable, and that proportion is applicable to larger amounts.

"Regarding sheep, for every forty sheep up to one hundred and twenty, one sheep is due. But if you possess only thirty-nine, nothing is payable on them." He further narrated the tradition about the sadaqah (zakat) on sheep like that of az-Zuhri.

"Regarding cattle, a yearling bull calf is payable for every thirty, and a cow in her third year for forty, and nothing is payable on working animals.

Regarding (the zakat on) camels, he mentioned the rates that az-Zuhri mentioned in his tradition. He said: "For twenty-five camels, five sheep are to be paid. If they exceed by one, a she-camel in her second year is to be given. If there is no she-camel in her second year, a male camel in its third year is to be given, up to thirty-five. If they exceed by one a she-camel in her third year is to be given, up to forty-five. If they exceed by one, a she-camel in her fourth year which is ready to be covered by a bull-camel is to be given." He then transmitted the rest of the tradition like that of az-Zuhri.

He continued: If they exceed by one, i.e. they are ninety-one to hundred and twenty, two she-camels in their fourth year, which are ready to be covered by a bull-camel, are to be given. If there are more camels than that, a she-camel in her fourth year is to be given for every fifty. Those which are in one flock are not to be separated, and those which are separate are not to be brought together. An old sheep, one with a defect in the eye, or a billy goat is not to be accepted as a sadaqah unless the collector is willing.

As regards agricultural produce, a tenth is payable on that which is watered by rivers or rain, and a twentieth on that which is watered by draught camels."

The version of Asim and al-Harith says: "Sadaqah (zakat) is payable every year." Zuhayr said: I think he said "Once a year".

The version of Asim has the words: "If a she-camel in her second year is not available among the camels, nor is there a bull-camel in its third year, ten dirhams or two goats are to be given."
Abu Dawud | 3:1567
17 Narrated Ali ibn AbuTalib:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: "When you possess two hundred dirhams and one year passes on them, five dirhams are payable. Nothing is incumbent on you, that is, on gold, till it reaches twenty dinars. When you possess twenty dinars and one year passes on them, half a dinar is payable. Whatever exceeds, that will be reckoned properly."

(The narrator said: I do not remember whether the words "that will be reckoned properly" were uttered by All himself or he attributed them to the Prophet (Peach be upon him).

No zakat is payable on property till a year passes on it.

But Jarir said: Ibn Wahb (sub-narrator) added to this tradition from the Prophet (Peach be upon him): "No zakat is payable on property until a year passes away on it."
Abu Dawud | 3:1568
18 Narrated Ali ibn AbuTalib:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: I have given exemption regarding horses and slaves; with regard to coins, however, you must pay a dirham for every forty (dirhams), but nothing is payable on one hundred and ninety. When the total reaches two hundred, five dirhams are payable.


Abu Dawud said: Al-A'mash transmitted this tradition from Abu Ishaq like the one transmitted by Abu 'Awanah. This tradition has also been narrated by Shaiban, Abu Mu'awiyah and Ibrahim b. Tahman from Abu Ishaq from al-Harith on the authority of 'Ali from the Prophet (Peach be upon him) to the same effect. The tradition reported by al-Nufail has also been narrated by Shu'bah, Sufyan, and others from Abu Ishaq from 'Asim from 'Ali, But they did not attribute it to the Prophet (Peach be upon him).
Abu Dawud | 3:1569
19 Bahz b Hakim reported from his grandfather:

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) said: For forty pasturing camels, one she-camel in her third year is to be given. The camels are not to be separated from reckoning. He who pays zakat with the intention of getting reward will be rewarded. If anyone evades zakat, we shall take half the property from him as a due from the dues of our Lord, the Exalted. There is no share in it (zakat) of the descendants of Muhammad (Peach be upon him).
Abu Dawud | 3:1570
20 Narrated Mu'adh ibn Jabal:

When the Prophet (Peach be upon him) sent him to the Yemen, he ordered him to take a male or a female calf a year old for every thirty cattle and a cow in its third year for every forty, and one dinar for every adult (unbeliever as a poll-tax) or cloths of equivalent value manufactured in the Yemen.
Abu Dawud | 3:1571
21 This tradition has also been transmitted by Mu'adh through a different chain of narrators to the same effect.
Abu Dawud | 3:1572
22 Narrated Mu'adh bin Jabal:

that the Prophet (Peach be upon him) sent him to Yemen. He then narrated the tradition something similar. He did not mention in this version cloths made in the Yemen nor did he refer to adult (unbelievers).

Abu Dawud said This tradition has been transmitted by Jarir, Ya'la, Ma'mar, Abu 'Awanahand Yahya bin Sa'id from Al A'mash, from Abu Wa'il, on the authority of Masruq, and from Ya'la and Ma'mar on the authority of Mu'adh to the same effect.
Abu Dawud | 3:1573
23 Suwayd ibn Ghaflah said:

I went myself or someone who accompanied the collector of the Prophet (Peach be upon him) told me: It was recorded in the document written by the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) not to accept a milking goat or she-camel or a (suckling) baby (as zakat on animals); and those which are in separate flocks are not to be brought together, and those which are in one flock are not to be separated.

The collector used to visit the water-hole when the sheep went there and say: Pay the sadaqah (zakat) on your property. The narrator said: A man wanted to give him his high-humped camel (kawma'). The narrator (Hilal) asked: What is kawma', AbuSalih? He said: A camel a high hump.

The narrator continued: He (the collector) refused to accept it. He said: I wish you could take the best of my camels. He refused to accept it. He then brought another camel lower in quality than the previous one. He refused to accept it too. He then brought another camel lower in quality than the previous one. He accepted it, saying: I shall take it, but I am afraid the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) might be angry with me, saying to me: You have purposely taken from a man a camel of your choice.


Abu Dawud said: This tradition has also been narrated by Hushaim from Hilal bin Khabbab to the same effect. But he said: Those which are in one flock are not to be separated.
Abu Dawud | 3:1574
24 Suwaid bin Ghaflah reported The collector of the Prophet (Peach be upon him) came to us. I caught hold of his hand and read in the document that the goods were not to be combined nor were they to be separated for fear of zakat. There is no mention of milch animals in this tradition.
Abu Dawud | 3:1575
25 Muslim ibn Shu'bah said:

Nafi' ibn Alqamah appointed my father as charge d'affaires of his tribe, and commanded him to collect sadaqah (zakat) from them. My father sent me to a group of them; so I came to an aged man called Sa'r ibn Disam

I said: My father has sent me to you to collect zakat from you. He asked: What kind of animals will you take, my nephew? I replied: We shall select the sheep and examine their udders. He said: My nephew, I shall narrate a tradition to you. I lived on one of these steppes during the time of the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) along with my sheep. Two people riding a camel came to me.

They said to me: We are messengers of the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him), sent to you so that you may pay the sadaqah (zakat) on your sheep.

I asked: What is due from me for them?

They said: One goat. I went to a goat which I knew was full of milk and fat, and I brought it to them.

They said: This is a pregnant goat. The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) prohibited us to accept a pregnant goat.

I asked: What will you take then? They said: A goat in its second year or a goat in its third year. I then went to a goat which had not given birth to any kid, but it was going to do so. I brought it to them.

They said: Give it to us. They took it on the camel and went away.

Abu Dawud said: Abu 'Asim transmitted this tradition from Zakariyya. He said: Muslim bin Shu'bah is a narrator in the chain of this tradition as reported by the narrator Rawh.
Abu Dawud | 3:1576
26
This tradition has also been narrated by Zakariyya bin Ishaq through his chain of narrators. In this version Mulsim bin Shu'bah said:

Shafi' means a goat which has a baby in its womb.


Abu Dawud said: I read in a document possessed by Abdullah ibn Salim at Hims: Abdullah ibn Mu'awiyah al-Ghadiri reported the Prophet (Peach be upon him) as saying: He who performs three things will have the taste of the faith. (They are:) One who worships Allah alone and one believes that there is no god but Allah; and one who pays the zakat on his property agreeably every year. One should not give an aged animal, nor one suffering from itch or ailing, and one most condemned, but one should give animals of medium quality, for Allah did not demand from you the best of your animals, nor did He command you to give the animals of worst quality.
Abu Dawud | 3:1577
27 Narrated Ubayy ibn Ka'b:

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) commissioned me as a collector of zakat. I visited a man. When he had collected his property of camels, I found that a she-camel in her second year was due from him.

I said to him: Pay a she-camel in her second year, for she is to be paid as sadaqah (zakat) by you.

He said: That one is not worthy of milking and riding. Here is another she-camel which is young, grand and fat. So take it.

I said to him: I shall not take an animal for which I have not been commanded. The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) is here near to you. If you like, go to him, and present to him what you presented to me. Do that; if he accepts it from you, I shall accept it; if he rejects it, I shall reject it.

He said: I shall do it. He accompanied me and took with him the she-camel which he had presented to me. We came to the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him). He said to him: Prophet of Allah, your messenger came to me to collect zakat on my property. By Allah, neither the Messenger of Allah nor his messenger has ever seen my property before. I gathered my property (camels), and he estimated that a she-camel in her second year would be payable by me. But that has neither milk nor is it worth riding. So I presented to him a grand young she-camel for acceptance as zakat. But he has refused to take her. Look, she is here; I have brought her to you, Messenger of Allah. Take her.

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) said: That is what is due from you. If you give voluntarily a better (animal) Allah will give a reward to you for it. We accept her from you.

She is here, Messenger of Allah; I have brought her to you. So take her. The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) then ordered me to take possession of it, and he prayed for a blessing on his property.
Abu Dawud | 3:1578
28 Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:

said When the Messenger of Allah(Peach be upon him) sent Mu'adh to Yemen, he said to him You are going to a people who are people of the book. So call them to bear witness that there is no diety but Allah, and that I am the Messenger of Allah. If they obey you in this respect, tell them that Allah has prescribed five prayers on them every day and night. If they obey you in this regard tell them that Allah has prescribed sadaqah(zakat) on their property and returned it to their poor. If they obey you in this respect, do not take the best of their property. Beware of the curse of the oppressed, for there is no curtain between it and Allah.
Abu Dawud | 3:1579
29 Narrated Anas ibn Malik:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: He who collects more sadaqah than is due is like him who refuses to pay it.
Abu Dawud | 3:1580
30 Narrated Bashir ibn al-Khasasiyyah:

(Ibn Ubayd said in the version of his tradition that his name was not Bashir, but (it was) the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) (who had) named him Bashir)

We said: (to the Messenger of Allah): The collectors of sadaqah collect more than is due; can we hide our property to that proportion? He replied: "No."
Abu Dawud | 3:1581
31 The aforesaid tradition has also been narrated by Ayyub through a different chain of narrators to the same effect. This version adds We said Messenger of Allah(Peach be upon him) the collectors of sadaqah collect more than is due from us.

Abu Dawud said 'Abd Al Razzaq narrated this tradition from Ma'mar attributing it to the Prophet(Peach be upon him).
Abu Dawud | 3:1582
32 Narrated Jabir ibn Atik:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: Riders who are objects of dislike to you will come to you, but you must welcome them when they come to you, and give them a free hand regarding what they desire. If they are just, they will receive credit for it, but if they are unjust, they will be held responsible. Please them, for the perfection of your zakat consists in their good pleasure, and let them ask a blessing for you .


Abu Dawud said: The name of the narrator Abu al-Ghusn is Thabit bin Qais bin Ghusn.
Abu Dawud | 3:1583
33 Jabir bin 'Abdallah told of some people, meaning nomadic Arabs, who came to the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) and said Collectors of zakat come to us and act unjustly. He said please those who collect the sadaqah from you. They asked Even if they wrong us, Messenger of Allah? He replied Please those who collect sadaqah from you.

The version of 'Uthman adds "Even if you are wronged". Abu Kamil said in this version "Jarir said No collector of zakat returned from me since I heard this from the Messenger of Allah(Peach be upon him), but he was pleased with me."
Abu Dawud | 3:1584
34 Narrated 'Abdallah bin Abi Awfa:

My father was one of those Companions who took the oath of allegiance at the hand of the Prophet (Peach be upon him) beneath the tree. The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said when the people brought him their sadaqah : O Allah, bless the family of so and so. When my father brought him his sadaqah he said O Allah bless the family of Abu Awfa.
Abu Dawud | 3:1585
35
'Amr bin Shu'aib, on his father's authority, said that his grandfather reported the Prophet (Peach be upon him) as saying:

There is to be no collecting of sadaqah (zakat) from a distance, nor must people who own property remove it far away, and their sadaqahs are to be received in their dwelling.
Abu Dawud | 3:1587
36 Explaining the meaning of Jalab and janab Muhammad bin Ishaq said The meaning of jalab said is that the zakat of animals should be collected at their places (dwellings), and they (animals) should not be pulled to the collector of zakat. The meaning of janab is that the animals are removed at a distance (from the collector). The owners of the animals should do so. The collector of zakat should not stay at a distance from the places of the people who bring their animals to him. The zakat should be collected in its place.
Abu Dawud | 3:1588
37 Narrated 'Abdallah bin Umar:

'Umar bin Al Khattab gave a horse as alms in the way of Allah. He then found it being sold, and intended to buy it. So he asked the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) about this. He said Do not buy it, and do not take back your sadaqah.
Abu Dawud | 3:1589
38 Narrated Abu Hurairah:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: No sadaqah is due on a horse or a slave except that given at the breaking of the fast (at the end of Ramadan).
Abu Dawud | 3:1590
39 Narrated Abu Hurairah:

The Messenger of Allah(Peach be upon him) as saying No sadaqah is due from a Muslim on his slave or his horse.
Abu Dawud | 3:1591
40 Narrated 'Abdallah bin Umar:

The Messenger of Allah(Peach be upon him) as saying A tenth is payable on what is watered by rain or rivers or brooks or from underground moisture and a twentieth on what is watered by draught camels.
Abu Dawud | 3:1592
41 Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdallah:

The Messenger of Allah(Peach be upon him) as saying A tenth is payable on what is watered by rivers and brooks or from underground moisture and a twentieth on what is watered by draught camels.
Abu Dawud | 3:1593
42 Waki' said Ba'l means the agricultural crop which grows by the rain water. Ibn Al Aswad said and Yahya, that is, Ibn Adam said I asked Abu Iyas al Asadi (about this word ba'l). He replied What is watered by rain.
Abu Dawud | 3:1594
43 Narrated Mu'adh ibn Jabal:

When the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) sent him to the Yemen, he said (to him): Collect corn from the corn, sheep from the sheep, camel from the camels, and cow from the cows.


Abu Dawud said: In Egypt I saw a cucumber thirteen spans in length and a citron cut into two pieces loaded on a camel like two loads.
Abu Dawud | 3:1595
44 'Amr bin Shu'aib, on his father's authority, said that his grandfather reported:

Hilal, a man from the tribe of Banu Mat'an brought a tenth of honey which he possessed in beehives to the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him). He asked him (the apostle of Allah) to give the wood known as Salabah as a protected (or restricted) land.

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) gave him that wood as a protected land.

When Umar ibn al-Khattab succeeded, Sufyan ibn Wahb wrote to Umar asking him about this wood. Umar ibn al-Khattab wrote to him: If he (Hilal) pays you the tithe on honey what he used to pay to the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him), leave the protected land of Salabah in his possession; otherwise those bees are like those of any wood; anyone can take the honey as he likes.
Abu Dawud | 3:1596
45
'Amr bin Shu'aib, on his father's authority, said that his grandfather reported:

That was Banu Shababah, a sub-clan of the tribe Fahm. The narrator then transmitted the tradition something similar. He added:(They used to pay) one bag (of honey) out of ten bags. Sufyan ibn Abdullah ath-Thaqafi gave them two woods as protected lands. They used to give as much honey (as zakat) as they gave to the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him). He (Sufyan) used to protect their woods.
Abu Dawud | 3:1597
46 'Amr bin Shu'aib said on the authority of his father that his grandfather reported a sub clan of Fahm. He then narrated the tradition like that of the narrator Al Mughirah. This version has "(They used to give) sadaqah out of ten bags (of honey)." He also added "Two woods of theirs".
Abu Dawud | 3:1598
47 Narrated Attab ibn Usayd:

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) commanded to estimate vines (for collecting zakat) as palm-trees are estimated. The zakat is to be paid in raisins as the zakat on palm trees is paid in dried dates.
Abu Dawud | 3:1599
48 The Above-mentioned tradition has also been narrated by Ibn Shihab through a different chain of narrators to the same effects.
Abu Dawud | 3:1600
49
AbdurRahman ibn Mas'ud said:

Sahl ibn Abu Hathmah came to our gathering. He said: The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) commanding us said: When you estimate take them leaving a third, and if you do not leave or find a third, leave a quarter.
Abu Dawud | 3:1601
50 Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin:

Describing the conquest of Khaybar Aisha said: The Prophet (Peach be upon him) used to send Abdullah ibn Rawahah to the Jews of Khaybar, and he would make an estimate of the palm trees when the fruit was in good condition before any of it was eaten.
Abu Dawud | 3:1602
51
Abu Umamah bin Sahl reported on the authority of his father:

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) prohibited to accept ja'rur and habiq dates as zakat. Az-Zuhri said: These are two kinds of the dates of Medina.


Abu Dawud said: This has also been transmited by Abu al-Walid from Sulaiman bin Kathir from Az-Zuhri.
Abu Dawud | 3:1603
52 Narrated Awf ibn Malik:

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) entered upon us in the mosque, and he had a stick in his hand. A man hung there a bunch of hashaf. He struck the bunch with the stick, and said: If the owner of this sadaqah (alms) wishes to give a better one than it, he would give. The owner of this sadaqah will eat hashaf on the Day of Judgment.
Abu Dawud | 3:1604
53 Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas:

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) prescribed the sadaqah (alms) relating to the breaking of the fast as a purification of the fasting from empty and obscene talk and as food for the poor. If anyone pays it before the prayer (of 'Id), it will be accepted as zakat. If anyone pays it after the prayer, that will be a sadaqah like other sadaqahs (alms).
Abu Dawud | 3:1605
54 Ibn 'Umar said:

The Messenger of Allah(Peach be upon him) commanded us that the end of Ramadan when the fasting is closed sadaqah(alms) should be paid before the people went to prayer. 'Abd Allah b. 'Umar used to pay it one or two days before.
Abu Dawud | 3:1606
55 Ibn 'Umar said:

The Messenger of Allah(Peach be upon him) prescribed as zakat payable by slave and freeman, male and female, among the muslims on closing the fast of Ramadan one sa of dried dates or one sa' of barley. (This tradition was read out byu 'Abd Allah b. Maslamah to Malik)
Abu Dawud | 3:1607
56 Abd' Allah b. Umar said:

The Messenger of Allah(Peach be upon him)prescribed the sadaqah at the end of Ramadan one sa'. The narrator then transmitted the tradition like the one narrated by Malik. This version adds : "Young and old. He gave command that this should be paid before the people went out to prayers."

Abu Dawud said : 'Abd Allah al-'Umari narrated it from Nafi' through his chain : "on every Muslim." The version of Sa'id al-Jumahi has : "Among the Muslims." The well-known version transmitted by 'Ubaid Allah does not mention the words "among the Muslims"
Abu Dawud | 3:1608
57
Ibn 'Umar said:

The Messenger of Allah(Peach be upon him) prescribed sadaqah at the end of Ramadan one sa' of barley and dried dates, payable by young and old freeman and slave. The version of Musa adds : " male and female".

Abu Dawud said : the words "male and female" narrated, by Ayyub and 'Abd Allah al Umar were narrated in their version on the authority of Nafi'.
Abu Dawud | 3:1609
58 Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar:

The people during the lifetime of the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) used to bring forth the sadaqah at the end of Ramadan when closing the fast one sa' of barley whose straw is removed, or of raisins. Abdullah said: When Umar (Allah be pleased with him) succeeded, and the wheat became abundant, Umar prescribed half a sa' of wheat instead of all these things.
Abu Dawud | 3:1610
59 Abd' Allah(b. 'Umar) said "The people then began to pay half a sa' of wheat later on. The narrator said:

'Abd Allah (b. Umar) use to pay dried dates as sadaqah one year the people of Medina lacked dried dates, hence he paid barley.
Abu Dawud | 3:1611
60
Abu sa'id al-khudri said:

When the Messenger of Allah(May peace be upon him) lived among us, we use to bring forth zakat, on closing the fast of Ramadan one sa' of grain or of cheese, or of barley, or of dried dates, or of raisens, payable by every young and old freeman and slave. We continued to pay this till mu-awayah came to perform Haj or Umra and he spoke to the people on the pulpit. What he said to the people was : I think that Mudds of the wheat of syrria is equivalent to one sa' of dried dates. So the people adopted it. Abu sa'id said : But I continued to pay one sa' of wheat as long as I lived on.

Abu Dawud said : this tradition has also been transmitted by Abu sa'id through a different chain of narrators to the same effect. A man has narrated in this version from Ibn-Ulayyah one sa' of wheat.
But this version is not guarded.
Abu Dawud | 3:1612
61 The aforesaid tradition has also been transmitted by Abu Sa'id through a different chain of narrators.
This version adds:

"Half a sa' of wheat ". But this is a misunderstanding on the part of muawayah b. Hisham and of those who narrated from him.
Abu Dawud | 3:1613
62 Narrated Abu Sa'id al-Khudri:

I shall always pay one sa'. We used to pay during the lifetime of the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) one sa' of dried dates or of barley, or of cheese, or of raisins. This is the version of Yahya. Sufyan added in his version: "or one sa' of flour." The narrator Hamid (ibn Yahya) said: The people objected to this (addition); Sufyan then left it.


Abu Dawud said: This addition is a misunderstanding on the part of Ibn Uyainah.
Abu Dawud | 3:1614
63
'Abd Allah b. Tha'labah or Tha'labah bin 'Abd Allah bin Abu Su'air reported on his father's authority that the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) said:

One sa' of wheat is to be taken from every two, young or old, freeman or slave, male or female. Those of you who are rich will be purified by Allah, and those of you who are poor will have more than they gave returned by Him to them. Sulayman added in his version: "rich or poor"
Abu Dawud | 3:1615
64
'Abd Allah bin Tha'labah ibn Su'ayr reported on the authority of his father:

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) stood and gave a sermon; he commanded to give sadaqah, at the end of Ramadan when the fasting is closed, one sa' of dried dates or of barley payable by every person. The narrator Ali added in his version: "or one sa' of wheat to be taken from every two." Both the chains of narrators are then agreed upon the version: "payable by young and old, freeman and slave."
Abu Dawud | 3:1616
65 Abd Allah b. Tha'labah said (the narrator Ahmad b. salih said:

He, i.e "Abd al-Razzaq, said : He is 'Adawl. Abu Dawud said : Ahmed b. Salih said : He is 'Adhri): The Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) delivered a speech before the closing fast ('Id) by two days. He then transmitted the tradition like that of al Muqri ('Abd Allah b. Yazid).
Abu Dawud | 3:1617
66 Al-Hasan said:

Ibn Abbas preached towards the end of Ramadan on the pulpit (in the mosque) of al-Basrah. He said: Bring forth the sadaqah relating to your fast. The people, as it were, could not understand. Which of the people of Medina are present here? Stand for your brethren, and teach them, for they do not know.

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) prescribed this sadaqah as one sa' of dried dates or barley, or half a sa' of wheat payable by every freeman or slave, male or female, young or old. When Ali came (to Basrah), he found that price had come down. He said: Allah has given prosperity to you, so give one sa' of everything (as sadaqah).

The narrator Humayd said: Al-Hasan maintained that the sadaqah at the end of Ramadan was due on a person who fasted.
Abu Dawud | 3:1618
67 Abu Hurairah said:

The Prophet(Peach be upon him) sent Umar b. al-Khattab to collect sadaqa (All the people paid the zakat but ibn-jamil, Khalid b. al-walid and al-abbas refused. So the Messenger of Allah(Peach be upon him) said : Ibn-jamil is not (so much) objecting, but he was poor and Allah enriched him. As for Khalid b. Walid, you are wronging him, for he has kept back his courts of mail and weapons to use them in Allah's path. As for al-Abbas, the uncle of the Messenger of Allah(May peace be upon him), I shall be responsible for it and an equal amount along with it. Then he said did you not know(Umar) that a man's paternal uncle is of the same stock as the father or his father?
Abu Dawud | 3:1619
68 Narrated Ali ibn AbuTalib:

Al-Abbas asked the Prophet (Peach be upon him) about paying the sadaqah (his zakat) in advance before it became due, and he gave permission to do that.


Abu Dawud said: This tradition has also been transmitted by Hushaim through a different chain of narrators. The version of Hushaim is more sound.
Abu Dawud | 3:1620
69 Ibrahim ibn Ata, the client of Imran ibn Husayn, reported on the authority of his father:

Ziyad, or some other governor, sent Imran ibn Husayn to collect sadaqah (i.e. zakat). When he returned, he asked Imran: Where is the property? He replied: Did you send me to bring the property? We collected it from where we used to collect in the lifetime of the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him), and we spent it where we used to spend during the time of the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him).
Abu Dawud | 3:1621
70 Narrated Abdullah ibn Mas'ud:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: He who begs (from people) when he is affluent will come on the Day of Resurrection with scrapes, scratchings, or lacerations on his face. He was asked: What constitutes affluence, Messenger of Allah? He replied:It is fifty dirhams or its value in gold.

The narrator Yahya said: Abdullah ibn Sufyan said to Sufyan: I remember that Shu'bah does not narrate from Hakim ibn Jubayr. Sufyan said: Zubayr transmitted to us this tradition from Muhammad ibn AbdurRahman ibn Yazid.
Abu Dawud | 3:1622
71
'Ata' b. Yasar said:

A man from Banu Asad said : I and my family alighted at Baqi al-Gharqad. My wife said to me : Go the Messenger of Allah(Peach be upon him) and beg something from him for our eating, and made a mention of there need. So I went to the Messenger of Allah(May peace be upon him). I found with a man who was begging from him and he was saying to him: I have nothing to give you. The man turned away from him in anger while he was saying: By my life, you give anyone you wish. The Messenger of Allah(May peace be upon him) said : He's anger with me, for I have nothing to give him. If any of you begs when he has an Uqiyah or its equivalent, he has begged immoderately. The man of Banu Asad said : So I said : The she camel of ours is better than an uqiyah, while an uqiyah is equivalent to 40 Dirhams. I therefore returned and did not beg from him. Afterwards some barley and raisins where brought to the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him). He gave us a share from them (or as he reported)till Allah, the Exalted, made us self-sufficient(i.e well off).

Abu Dawud said: Al-Thawri narrated it as Malik narrated.
Abu Dawud | 3:1623
72 Narrated AbuSa'id al-Khudri:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: If anyone begs when he has something equivalent to an uqiyah in value, he has begged immoderately. So I said: My she-camel, Yaqutah, is better than an uqiyah. The version of Hisham goes: "better than forty dirhams. So I returned and did not beg anything from him." Hisham added in his version: "An uqiyah during the time of the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) was equivalent to forty dirhams."
Abu Dawud | 3:1624
73 Narrated Sahl ibn Hanzaliyyah:

Uyaynah ibn Hisn and Aqra' ibn Habis came to the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him). They begged from him. He commanded to give them what they begged. He ordered Mu'awiyah to write a document to give what they begged. Aqra' took his document, wrapped it in his turban, and went away.

As for Uyaynah, he took his document and came to the Prophet (Peach be upon him) at his home, and said to him: Muhammad, do you see me? I am taking a document to my people, but I do not know what it contains, just like the document of al-Mutalammis. Mu'awiyah informed the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) of his statement.

Thereupon the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) said: He who begs (from people) when he has sufficient is simply asking for a large amount of Hell-fire. (An-Nufayl (a transmitter) said elsewhere: "embers of Hell".)

They asked: Messenger of Allah, what is a sufficiency? (Elsewhere an-Nufayl said: What is a sufficiency which makes begging unfitting?)

He replied: It is that which would provide a morning and an evening meal. (Elsewhere an-Nufayl said: It is when one has enough for a day and night, or for a night and a day.) He (an-Nufayl) narrated to us this tradition briefly in the words that I have mentioned.
Abu Dawud | 3:1625
74 Narrated Ziyad ibn al-Harith as-Suda'i:

I came to the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) and swore allegiance to him, and after telling a long story he said: Then a man came to him and said: Give me some of the sadaqah (alms). The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) said: Allah is not pleased with a Prophet's or anyone else's decision about sadaqat till He has given a decision about them Himself. He has divided those entitled to them into eight categories, so if you come within those categories, I shall give you what you desire.
Abu Dawud | 3:1626
75 Abu Hurairah reported Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) as saying:

The poor man(miskin) is not one who is admitted (by the people) with one or two dates or with one or two morsels but is one, who does not beg anything from his people and is not taken notice of so that alms may be given to him.
Abu Dawud | 3:1627
76 Narrated AbuHurayrah:

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) said something similar as mentioned in the preceding tradition. This version adds: But the poor man (miskin) who abstains from begging from the people is one (according to the version of Musaddad who does not get enough so that he may not beg from the people, nor is his need known to the people, so that alms be given to him. This is the one who has been deprived. Musaddad did not mention the words "one who avoids begging from the people."


Abu Dawud said: This tradition has been transmitted by Muhammad bin Thawr and 'Abd al-Razzaq on the authority of Ma'mar. They mentioned that the word "deprived" is the statement of al-Zuhri, and this is more sound.
Abu Dawud | 3:1628
77 Narrated Ubaydullah ibn Adl ibn al-Khiyar:

Two men informed me that they went to the Prophet (Peach be upon him) when he was at the Farewell Pilgrimage while he was distributing the sadaqah and asked him for some of it. He looked us up and down, and seeing that we were robust, he said: If you wish, I shall give you something, but there is nothing spare in it for a rich man or for one who is strong and able to earn a living.
Abu Dawud | 3:1629
78 Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: Sadaqah may not be given to a rich man or to one who has strength and is sound in limbs.


Abu Dawud said: This tradition has been transmitted by Sufyan from Sa'd bin Ibrahim like the tradition narrated by Ibrahim. The version of Shu'bah from Sa'd has: "for a man who has strength and is robust." The other version of this tradition from the Prophet (Peach be upon him) have the words "for a man who has strength and is robust." Others have "for a man who has strength and is sound in limbs." 'Ata bin Zuhair said that he had met 'Abd Allah bin 'Amr who said: "Sadaqah is not lawful for a strong man nor for a man who has strength and is sound in limbs."
Abu Dawud | 3:1630
79 Narrated Ata ibn Yasar:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: Sadaqah may not be given to rich man, with the exception of five classes: One who fights in Allah's path, or who collects it, or a debtor, or a man who buys it with his money, or a man who has a poor neighbour who has been given sadaqah and gives a present to the rich man.
Abu Dawud | 3:1631
80
The aforesaid tradition has also been transmitted by abu-Said al-Khudri to the same effect to a different chain of narrators, attributing it to the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him).

Abu-Dawud said:

Ibn 'Uyainah reported from Zaid, from whom Malik narrated and Thwari narrated from Zaid that an authentic narrator reported from the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him)
Abu Dawud | 3:1632
81
Abu-Said reported:

Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) said : Sadaqah is not lawful for a rich person except what comes as a result of Jihad or what a poor neighbor gifts you out of the sadaqah given to him, or he entertains you in a feast.

Abu-Dawud said : This has been transmitted by Abu- Said through a different chain of narrators in a similar way.
Abu Dawud | 3:1633
82 Basheer b. Yasar said that a man from the Ansar called Sahi b. abu-Hatmah told him that Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) gave one Hundred camels to him a blood-wit from among the camels of sadaqah, i.e a blood-wit for the Ansari who was killed at Khaibar.
Abu Dawud | 3:1634
83 Narrated Samurah ibn Jundub:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: Acts of begging are lacerations with which a man disfigures his face, so he who wishes may preserve his self-respect, and he who wishes may abandon it; but this does not apply to one who begs from a ruler, or in a situation which makes it necessary.
Abu Dawud | 3:1635
84 Qabisah b. Mukhiriq al-Hilali said:

I became a guarantor for a payment, and I came to Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him). He said: Wait till I receive the sadaqah and I shall order it to be given to you. He then said : Begging, Qabisah, is allowable only to one of three classes: a man who has become a guarantor for a payment to whom begging is allowed till he gets it, after which he must stop (begging); a man who has been stricken by a calamity and it destroys his property to whom begging is allowed till he gets what will support life (or he said, what will provide a reasonable subsistence); and a man who has been smitten by poverty, about whom three intelligent members of his people confirm by saying: So and so has been smitten by poverty, to such a person begging is allowed till be gets what will support life (or he said, what will provide a reasonable subsistence), after which he must stop (begging). Any other reason for begging, Qabisah, is forbidden, and one who engages in such consumes it as a thing which is forbidden.
Abu Dawud | 3:1636
85 Narrated Anas ibn Malik:

A man of the Ansar came to the Prophet (Peach be upon him) and begged from him.

He (the Prophet) asked: Have you nothing in your house? He replied: Yes, a piece of cloth, a part of which we wear and a part of which we spread (on the ground), and a wooden bowl from which we drink water.

He said: Bring them to me. He then brought these articles to him and he (the Prophet) took them in his hands and asked: Who will buy these? A man said: I shall buy them for one dirham. He said twice or thrice: Who will offer more than one dirham? A man said: I shall buy them for two dirhams.

He gave these to him and took the two dirhams and, giving them to the Ansari, he said: Buy food with one of them and hand it to your family, and buy an axe and bring it to me. He then brought it to him. The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) fixed a handle on it with his own hands and said: Go, gather firewood and sell it, and do not let me see you for a fortnight. The man went away and gathered firewood and sold it. When he had earned ten dirhams, he came to him and bought a garment with some of them and food with the others.

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) then said: This is better for you than that begging should come as a spot on your face on the Day of Judgment. Begging is right only for three people: one who is in grinding poverty, one who is seriously in debt, or one who is responsible for compensation and finds it difficult to pay.
Abu Dawud | 3:1637
86
Awf b. Malik said:

We were with Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him), seven or eight or nine. He said : Do you take the oath of allegiance to the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him), and we shortly took the oath of allegiance. We said: we have already taken the oath of allegiance to you. He repeated the same words three times. We then stretched our hands and took the oath of allegiance to him. A man (or us) said : We took the oath of allegiance to you; now on what should we take the oath of allegiance, Messenger of Allah ? He replied: That you should worship Allah, do not associate anything with Him, offer five times prayer, listen and obey. He uttered a word quietly : And do not beg from the people. When the whip fell on the ground, none of that group asked anyone to pick up the whip for him.

Abu Dawud said : The version of Hisham was not narrated by anyone except Sa'id.
Abu Dawud | 3:1638
87 Thawban, the client of the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him), reported him as saying:

If anyone guarantees me that he will not beg from people, I will guarantee him Paradise. Thawban said : I (will not beg). He never asked anyone for anything.
Abu Dawud | 3:1639
88
Abu Said al-Khudri said:

Some of the Ansar begged from the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) and he gave them something. They later begged from him again and he gave them something so that what he had was exhausted.

He then said :What I have I shall never store away from you but Allah will strengthen the abstinence of him who abstains, will give a satisfaction to him who wants to be satisfied, and will strengthen the endurance of him who shows endurance. No one has been given a more ample gift than endurance.
Abu Dawud | 3:1640
89 Narrated Abdullah ibn Mas'ud:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: If one who is afflicted with poverty refers it to me, his poverty will not be brought to an end; but if one refers it to Allah, He will soon give him sufficiency, either by a speedy death or by a sufficiency which comes later.
Abu Dawud | 3:1641
90 Narrated Ibn al-Firasi:

Al-Firasi asked the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him): May I beg, Messenger of Allah? The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: No, but if there is no escape from it, beg from the upright.
Abu Dawud | 3:1642
91 Ibn al-Saidi said:

Umar employed me to collect the sadaqah. When I finished doing so and gave it to him, he ordered payment to be given to me. I said: I did only for Allah's sake, and my reward will come from Allah. He said: Take what you are given, for I acted (as a collector) during the time of the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) and he assigned me a payment. Thereupon, I said the same kind of thing as you have said, to which Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) said: When you are given something without asking for it, you should use it for your own purpose and as sadaqah.
Abu Dawud | 3:1643
92
Abd Allah b. 'Umar reported that the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) said when he was on the pulpit speaking of sadaqah and abstention from it and begging:

the upper hand is better than the lower one, the upper being the one which bestows and the lower which begs.

Abu Dawud said : The version of this tradition narrated by Ayyub from Nafi is disputed. The narrator `Abd al-Warith said in his version : `The upper hand is the one which abstains from begging;" but most of the narrators have narrated from Hammad b. Zaid from Ayyub the words " The upper hand is the one which bestows." A narrator from Hammad said in his version "the one which abstains from begging."
Abu Dawud | 3:1644
93 Narrated Malik ibn Nadlah:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: Hands are of three types: Allah's hand is the upper one; the bestower's hand is the one near it; the beggar's hand is the lower one. So bestow what is surplus, and do not submit yourself to the demand of your soul.
Abu Dawud | 3:1645
94 Narrated AbuRafi':

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) sent a man of the Banu Makhzum to collect sadaqah. He said to AbuRafi': Accompany me so that you may get some of it. He said: (I cannot take it) until I go to the Prophet (Peach be upon him) and ask him. Then he went to him and asked him. He said: The sadaqah is not lawful for us, and the client of a people is treated as one of them.
Abu Dawud | 3:1646
95 Anas said:

The Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) came upon a date on the road; he would not take it for fear of being a part of the sadaqah.
Abu Dawud | 3:1647
96 Anas said:

Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) found a date and said: Were it not that I fear it may be part of the sadaqah, I would eat it.
Abu Dawud | 3:1648
97 Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas:

My father sent me to the Prophet (Peach be upon him) to take the camels which he had given him from among those of sadaqah.
Abu Dawud | 3:1649
98 The aforesaid tradition has also been transmitted by Ibn Abbas through a different chain of narrators in a similar manner. This version adds:

"My father exchanged them for him".
Abu Dawud | 3:1650
99 Anas said when some meat was brought to the Prophet (SAWS), he asked What is this? He was told this is a thing (meat), which was given as sadaqah to Barirah. Thereupon, he said it is sadaqah for her and a gift to us.
Abu Dawud | 3:1651
100 Buraidah said A woman came to the Messenger of Allah (SAWS) and said I gave a slave girl as sadaqah to my mother who has now died and has left that slave girl. He said your reward is sure and the inheritance has given her back to you.
Abu Dawud | 3:1652

During the time of the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) we used to consider ma'un (this of daily use) lending a bucket and cooking-pot.
Abu Dawud | 3:1653
102 Abu Hurairah reported that Messenger of Allah (SWAS) as saying If any owner of treasure (gold and silver) does not pay what is due on it, Allah will make it heated in the Hell fire on the Day of Judgment, and his side, forehead and back will be cauterized with it until Allah gives His Judgment among mankind during a day whose extent will be fifty thousand years of your count and he sees whether his path is to take him to Paradise or to Hell. If any owner does not pay zakat on them, the sheep wilkl appear on the Day or Judgment most strong and in great number, a soft sandy plain will be spread out for them ; they will gore him with their horns and trample him with their hoofs; there will be none of them with twisted horns or without horns. As often as the last of them passes him, the first of them will be brought back to him, until Allah pronounces His Judgment among mankind during a day whose extent will be fifty thousand years that you count, and he sees whether his path is to take him to Paradise or to Hell. If any owner of camels does not pay what is due on them, they will appear in on the Day or Judgment most strong and in great number, a soft sandy plain will be spread out for them ; they will gore him with their horns and trample him with their hoofs; there will be none of them with twisted horns or without horns. As often as the last of them passes him, the first of them will be brought back to him, until Allah pronounces His Judgment among mankind during a day whose extent will be fifty thousand years that you count, and he sees whether his path is to take him to Paradise or to Hell.
Abu Dawud | 3:1654
103 The above mentioned tradition has also been transmitted by Abu Hurairah through a different chain of narrators in a similar manner from the Prophet (SAWS). This version adds after the words "does not pay what is due on them" in the description of the camels the words " One thing which is due being to milk them when they come down to drink water."
Abu Dawud | 3:1655

I heard the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) as saying something similar to this tradition. He (the narrator) said to AbuHurayrah: What is due on camels? He replied: That you should give the best of your camels (in the path of Allah), that you lend a milch she-camel, you lend your mount for riding, that you lend the stallion for covering, and that you give the milk (to the people) for drinking.
Abu Dawud | 3:1656
105 The aforesaid tradition has also been transmitted by 'Ubaid bin ' Umair through a different chain of narrators. This version goes:

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) said he who has a spare riding beast should give it to him who has no riding beast; and he who has surplus equipment should give it to who has no equipment. We thought that none of us had a right in surplus property.
Abu Dawud | 3:1659
108 Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas:

When this verse was revealed: "And those who hoard gold and silver," the Muslims were grieved about it. Umar said: I shall dispel your care. He, therefore, went and said: Prophet of Allah, your Companions were grieved by this verse. The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) said: Allah has made zakat obligatory simply to purify your remaining property, and He made inheritances obligatory that they might come to those who survive you. Umar then said: Allah is most great. He then said to him: Let me inform you about the best a man hoards; it is a virtuous woman who pleases him when he looks at her, obeys him when he gives her a command, and guards his interests when he is away from her.
Abu Dawud | 3:1660

He replied Yes, do an act of kindness to her.
Abu Dawud | 3:1664
113
Buhaysah reported on the authority of his father:

My father sought permission from the Prophet (Peach be upon him). (When permission was granted and he came near him) he lifted his shirt, and began to kiss him and embrace him (out of love for him). He asked: Messenger of Allah, what is the thing which it is unlawful to refuse? He replied: Water. He again asked: Prophet of Allah, what is the thing which it is unlawful to refuse?

While we were sitting with the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) a man brought him some gold equal in weight to an egg, and said: Messenger of Allah, I have got this from a mine; take it; it is sadaqah. I have no more than this. The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) turned his attention from him. Then he came to him from his right side and repeated the same words. But he (the Prophet) turned his attention from him. He then came to him from his left side and repeated the same words. But he (again) turned his attention from him. He then came to him from behind. The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) took it and threw it away. Had it hit him, it would have hurt him or wounded him. The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) said: One of you brings all that he possesses and says: This is sadaqah. Then he sits down and spreads his hand before the people. The best sadaqah is that which leaves a competence.

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) commanded us one day to give sadaqah. At that time I had some property. I said: Today I shall surpass AbuBakr if I surpass him any day. I, therefore, brought half my property. The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) asked: What did you leave for your family? I replied: The same amount. AbuBakr brought all that he had with him. The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) asked him: What did you leave for your family? He replied: I left Allah and His Apostle for them. I said: I shall never compete you in anything.
Abu Dawud | 3:1674
123 Sa'id reported Sa'd came to the Prophet (SWAS) and asked him Which sadaqah do you like most? He replied Water.

Abu Dawud | 3:1678
127 Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: There are forty characteristics; the highest of them is to give a goat on loan (for benefiting from its milk). If any man carries out any of those characteristics with the hope of getting a reward and testifying to the promise for it, Allah will admit him to Paradise for it.

Abu Dawud said: In the version of Musaddad, Hassan said: So we counted other characteristics than lending the goat: to return the greeting, to respond to sneezing, and remove things which cause annoyance to the people from their path, and similar other things. We could not reach fifteen characteristics.
Abu Dawud | 3:1679
128 Abu Musa reported The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) as saying The faithful trustee who gives what he is commanded completely and in full with a good will, and delivers it to the one whom he was told to give it, is one of the two who gives sadaqah.
Abu Dawud | 3:1680
129 A'ishah reported The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) as saying When a woman gives (some of the property) from her husband's house, not wasting it, she will have her reward for what she has spent, and her husband will have his for what he earned. The said applies to a trustee. In no respect does the one diminish the reward of the other.
Abu Dawud | 3:1681
130 Sa'd said When the Messenger of Allah (SWAS) took the oath of allegiance from woman, a woman of high rank, who seemed to be one of the women of Mudar, rose and said Prophet of Allah (SWAS), we are dependant on our parents, our sons. (Abu Dawud said I think (this version) has the word " and our husbands". ) So what part of their property can be spent lawfully? He said Fresh food which you eat and give as a present.

Abu Dawud said The Arabic word ratb means bread, vegetables and fresh dates.

Abu Dawud said Al-Thawri transmitted from Yunus in a similar manner.
Abu Dawud | 3:1682
131 Abu Hurairah reported The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) as saying When a woman gives something her husband has earned without being commanded by him to do so, she has half his reward.
Abu Dawud | 3:1683
132 'Ata said Abu Hurairah was asked Whether a woman could give sadaqah from the house (property) of her husband. He replied `No'. She can give it from her maintenance. The reward will be divided between them. It is not lawful for her to give sadaqah from her husband's property without his permission.

Abu Dawud said This version weakens the version narrated by Hammam (bin Munabbih).
Abu Dawud | 3:1684
133 Anas said When the verse "You will never attain righteousness until you give freely of what you love" came down, Abu Talhah said Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him), I think our Lord asks us for our property. I call you as witness that I dedicate my land at Ariha 'to Him'. The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) said to him Divide it among your nearest relatives. So he divided it among Hassan bin Thabit and Ubayy bin Ka'b.

Abu Dawud said I have been gold by an Ansari Muhammad bin 'Abdallah that the name of Abu Talhah is Zaid bin Sahal bin al-Aswad bin Haram bin 'Amar bin Zaid bin Manat bin 'Adi bin 'Amr bin Malik bin al-Najjar; and Hassan bin Tabit is son of al-Mundhir in al-Haram. Thus both of them (Abu Talhah and Hassan) have their common link in Haram who is the third great grandfather. Ubbay bin Ka'b is son of Qais bin 'Atik bin Zaid bin Mu'awiyah bin 'Amr bin Malik bin al-Najjar. Thus the common tie between Hassan, Abu Talhah and Ubbay is 'Amr (bin Malik). The Ansari said between Ubbay and Abi Talhah there are six great grandfathers.
Abu Dawud | 3:1685
134 Maimunah, wife of the Probhet (Peach be upon him) said:

I had a slave girl and I set her free. When the Prophet (Peach be upon him) entered upon me, I informed him (of this). He said : May Allah give reward for it; if you had given her to your maternal uncles, it would have increased your reward
Abu Dawud | 3:1686
135 Narrated Abu Hurayrah:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) commanded to give sadaqah. A man said: Messenger of Allah, I have a dinar. He said: Spend it on yourself. He again said: I have another. He said: Spend it on your children. He again said: I have another. He said: Spend it on your wife. He again said: I have another. He said: Spend it on your servant. He finally said: I have another. He replied: You know best (what to do with it).

It is sufficient sin for a man that he neglects him whom he maintains.

(Sufyan said : The version of the narrator Sulaiman does not go back to The Prophet (SAWS). Fitr and al-Hasan reported from him ) : The Messenger of Allah (SAWS) said : One who compensates is not a man who unites relationship : but the man who unites relationship is the one who joins it when the relationship is cut off.
Abu Dawud | 3:1693
142 Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As:

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) preached and said: Abstain from avarice, for those who had been before you were annihilated due to avarice. It (avarice) commanded them to show niggardliness; it commanded them to cut off their relationship with their nearest relatives, so they cut off. It commanded them to show profligacy, so they showed it.
Abu Dawud | 3:1694
143 Asma, daughter of Abu Bakr, said:

I said : Messenger of Allah(SAWS), I have nothing of my own except what al-Zubair (her husband) brings to me in his house: should I spend out of it? He said : Give and do not hoard so your sustenance will be hoarded.
Abu Dawud | 3:1695
144 Abu Mulaykah reported:

Abu Dawud | 3:1696
145 Suwayd ibn Ghaflah said:

I fought along with Zayd ibn Suhan and Sulayman ibn Rabi'ah. I found a whip. They said to me: Throw it away. I said: No; if I find its owner (I shall give it to him); if not, I shall use it. Then I performed hajj; and when I reached Medina, I asked Ubayy ibn Ka'b.

He said: I found a purse which contained one hundred dinars; so I came to the Prophet (Peach be upon him). He said to me: Make the matter known for a year. I made it known for a year and then came to him. He then said to me: Make the matter known for a year. So I made it known for a year. I then (again) came to him. He said to me: Make the matter known for a year. Then I came to him and said: I did not find anyone who realises it. He said: Remember, its number, its container and its tie. If its owner comes, (give it to him), otherwise use it yourself.

He (the narrator Shu'bah) said: I do not know whether he said the word "make the matter known" three times or once.
Abu Dawud | 3:1697
146 The aforesaid tradition has also been transmitted by Shu'bah through a different chain of narrators to the same effect. The version goes:

He said : Make it known for a year. He said this three times. He said: I do not know whether he said "for a year" or "for three years".
Abu Dawud | 3:1698
147
The above mentioned tradition has also been transmitted by Salamah. Bin Kuhail through a different chain to the same effect. The version has ; about making the matter known he said ; " two years or three." He said:

Remember its number, its container and its string. The version adds : If its owner comes, and tells its number and its string, then give it to him.


Abu Dawud said : None of the narrators said this word in this tradition except Hammad ; That is, " If he tells its number."
Abu Dawud | 3:1699
148 Zaid bin Khalid al-Juhani said:

A man asked the Messenger of Allah (SWAS) about a find. He said: Make the matter known for a year, then note its string and its container and then use it for your purpose. Then if its owner comes, give it to him. He asked : Messenger of Allah, what about a stray sheep? He replied: Take it; that is for you, or for your brother, or for the wolf. He again asked: Messenger of Allah, What about stray camels? The Messenger of Allah (SWAS) became angry so much so that his cheeks became red or ( the narrator is doubtful) his face became red. He replied: What have you to do with them? They have with them their feet and their stomachs (for drink) till their master comes to him.
Abu Dawud | 3:1700
149
The above mentioned tradition has also been transmitted by Malik through a different chain of narrators to the same effect. This version adds:

They have their stomachs: They can go down to water and eat trees. He did not say about the stray sheep: take it. About a find he said : Make it known for a year; if it's owner comes, (give it to him), otherwise use it yourself. This version has not the word : " spend it".

Abu Dawud said : This tradition has been narrated by al-Thawri, Sulaiman bin Bilal, and Hammad bin Salamah on the authority of Rabi ' ah in a similar manner. They did not mention the word "take it".
Abu Dawud | 3:1701
150 Narrated Zayd ibn Khalid al-Juhani:

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) was asked about a find. He said: Make it known for a year. If its seeker comes, deliver it to him, otherwise note its container and its string. Then use it; if its seeker comes, deliver it to him.

Hammad also narrated it from `Ubaid Allah bin `Umar from `Amr bin Shu'aib, from his father, from his grandfather, from the Prophet (SWAS) something similar.

Abu Dawud said:

This addition made by Hammad bin Salamah bin Kuhail, Yahya bin Sa'id, `Ubaid Allah bin `Umar and Rabi'ah; "if its owner comes and recognizes its container, and its string," is not guarded. The version narrated by Uqbah bin Suwaid on the authority of his father from the Prophet (SWAS) has also the words : "make it known for a year".

154 Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As:

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) was asked about the hanging fruit. He replied: If a needy person takes some and does not take a supply away in his garment, he is not to be blamed, but he who carries any of it away is to be find twice the value and punished, and he who steals any of it after it has been put in the place where dates are dried is to have his hand cut off if its value reaches the price of a shield. Regarding stray camels and sheep he mentioned the same as others have done. He said: He was asked about finds and replied: If it is in a frequented road and a large town, make the matter known for a year, and if its owner comes, give it to him, but if he does not, it belongs to you. If it is in a place which has been a waste from ancient time, or if it is a hidden treasure (belonging to the Islamic period), it is subject to the payment of the fifth.
Abu Dawud | 3:1706
155 The above mentioned tradition has also been transmitted by 'Amr bin Shu'aib through a different chain of narrators. This version adds:

regarding the stray sheep he said : "Take it".
Abu Dawud | 3:1707
156 The aforesaid tradition has also been transmitted by 'Amr bin Shu'aib through a different chain of narrators. This version has:

Abu Dawud | 3:1711
160 Sahl bin Sa'd said:

`Ali bin Abi Talib entered upon Fatimah while Hasan and Husain were crying. He asked: Why are they crying? She replied: Due to hunger. 'Ali went out and found a dinar in the market. He then came to Fatima and told her about it. She said: Go to such and such a Jew and get some flour for us. He came to the Jew and purchased flour with it. He said : Are you the son-in-law of him who believes that he is the Messenger of Allah. He said : Yes. The Jew said : Have your dinar with you and you will get the flour. Ali then went out and came to Fatima. He told her about the matter. She then said: Go to such and such a butcher and get some meat for us for a dirham. Ali went out and pawned the dinar for a dirham with him and got the meat, and brought it (to her). She then kneaded the flour, put the utensil on fire and baked the bread. She sent for her father : (i.e. the Prophet (SWAS). He came to them. She said to him : Messenger of Allah, I tell you all the matter. If you think it is lawful for us, we shall eat it and you will eat with us. She said: The matter is such and such. He said: eat in the name of Allah. So they ate it. While they were (eating) at their place, a boy cried adguring in the name of Allah and Islam: He was searching the dinar. The Messenger of Allah (SWAS) commanded and he was called in. He asked him. The boy replied, I lost it somewhere in the market. The Prophet (SWAS) said : `Ali, go to the butcher and tell him that the Messenger of Allah (SWAS) has asked you : send the dinar to me and one dirham of yours will be due on me. The butcher returned it and the Messenger of Allah (SWAS) handed it to him (the boy).
