Sahih Muslim Book 10, Hadith Number 3722.
Chapter : Leasing out land.
Jabir b. Abdullah (Allah be pleased with them) heard Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) say: He who has surplus of land should either cultivate it himself, or let his brother cultivate it, an should not sell it. I (the narrator) said to Sa’id: What does his statement” do not sell it” mean? Does it imply” rent”? He said: Yes.
