Maliks Muwatta Book 43, Hadith Number 8A.

Section : Procedure in the Blood-Money for Teeth.

Yahya related to me from Malik from Da’ud ibn al-Husayn that Abu Ghatafan ibn Tarif al-Murri informed him that Marwan ibn al-Hakam sent him to Abdullah ibn Abbas to ask him what there was for the molar. Abdullah ibn Abbas said, “There are five camels for it.” He said, “Marwan sent me back again to Abdullah ibn Abbas.” He said, “Do you make front teeth like molars?” Abdullah ibn Abbas said, “It is enough that you take the fingers as the example for that, their blood-moneys being all the same.”

Yahya related to me from Malik from Hisham ibn Urwa that his father made all the teeth the same in the blood-money and did not prefer any kind over others.

Malik said, “What is done in our community is that the front teeth, molars, and eye-teeth have the same blood-money. That is because the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, ‘The tooth has five camels.’ The molar is one of the teeth and he did not prefer any kind over the others.”
