Maliks Muwatta Book 43, Hadith Number 8C.

Section : The Blood-Money of the People of Protection (Dhimma).

Yahya related to me from Malik that he heard that Umar ibn Abd al-Aziz gave a decision that when a jew or christian was killed, his blood-money was half the blood-money of a free muslim.

Malik said, “What is done in our community, is that a muslim is not killed for a kafir unless the muslim kills him by deceit. Then he is killed for it.”

Yahya related to me from Malik from Yahya ibn Said that Sulayman ibn Yasar said, “The blood-money of a magian is eight hundred dirhams.”

Malik said, “This is what is done in our community.”

Malik said, “The blood-monies of the jew, christian, and magian in their injuries, is according to the injury of the muslims in their blood-moneys. The head wound is a twentieth of his full blood-money. The wound that opens the head is a third of his blood-money. The belly-wound is a third of his blood-money. All their injuries are according to this calculation.”
