Abu Dawud Book 13, Hadith Number 2984.

Chapter : Not known.

Narated By Mujja’ah ibn Mirarah al-Yamani : Mujja’ah went to the Prophet (PBUH) asking him for the blood-money of his brother whom Banu Sadus from Banu Dhuhl had killed.

The Prophet (PBUH) said: Had I appointed blood-money for a polytheist, I should have appointed it for your brother. But I shall give you compensation for him. So the Prophet (PBUH) wrote (a document) for him that he should be given a hundred camels which were to be acquired from the fifth taken from the polytheists of Banu Dhuhl. So he took a part of them, for Banu Dhuhl embraced Islam.

He then asked AbuBakr for them later on, and brought to him the document of the Prophet (PBUH). So AbuBakr wrote for him that he should be given one thousand two hundred sa’s from the sadaqah of al-Yamamah; four thousand (sa’s) of wheat, four thousand (sa’s) of barley, and four thousand (sa’s) of dates.

The text of the document written by the Prophet (PBUH) for Mujja’ah was as follows: “In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. This document is from Muhammad, the Prophet, to Mujja’ah ibn Mirarah of Banu Sulma. I have given him one hundred camels from the first fifth acquired from the polytheist of Banu Dhuhl as a compensation for his brother.”
