Abu Dawud Book 34, Hadith Number 4510.

Chapter : Abandonment of retaliation in the case of qasamah taking oaths.

Narated By N/A : ‘Abd al-Rahman b. Bujaid said I swear by Allah, Sahl had a misunderstanding about this tradition. The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) wrote to the Jews: A slain man has been found amongst you, so pay his bloodwit. They wrote (to him): Swearing by Allah fifty oaths, we neither killed him nor do we know his slayer. He said: Then the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) himself paid his bloodwit which consisted of one hundred she-camels.
