|60 hadith found in 'Types of Blood-Wit (Kitab Al-Diyat)' of Sunan Abu-Dawud.|
| 4509 || Narrated Rafi' ibn Khadij: A man of the Ansar was killed at Khaybar and his relatives went to the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) and mentioned that to him. He asked: Have you two witnesses who can testify to the murderer of your friend? They replied: Apostle of Allah! there was not a single Muslim present, but only Jews who sometimes have the audacity to do even greater crimes than this. He said: Then choose fifty of them and demand that they take an oath; but they refused and the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) paid the blood-wit himself.
|| 4511 || Narrated Some men: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said to the Jews and started with them: Fifty of you should take the oaths. But they refused (to take the oaths). He then said to the Ansar: Prove your claim. They said: Do we take the oaths without seeing, Apostle of Allah? The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) then imposed the blood-wit on the Jews because he (the slain) was found among them.
|| 4515 || Narrated Ali ibn AbuTalib: Qays ibn Abbad and Ashtar went to Ali and said to him: Did the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) give you any instruction about anything for which he did not give any instruction to the people in general? He said: No, except what is contained in this document of mine. Musaddad said: He then took out a document. Ahmad said: A document from the sheath of his sword. It contained: The lives of all Muslims are equal; they are one hand against others; the lowliest of them can guarantee their protection. Beware, a Muslim must not be killed for an infidel, nor must one who has been given a covenant be killed while his covenant holds. If anyone introduces an innovation, he will be responsible for it. If anyone introduces an innovation or gives shelter to a man who introduces an innovation (in religion), he is cursed by Allah, by His angels, and by all the people. Musaddad said: Ibn AbuUrubah's version has: He took out a document.
|| 4516 || Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As: The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) said, mentioning the tradition similar to the one transmitted by Ali. This version adds: The most distant of them gives protection as from all, those who are strong among them send back (spoil) to those who are weak among them, and their expeditions sending it back to those who are at home.
|| 4519 || Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) sent AbuJahm ibn Hudhayfah as a collector of zakat. A man quarrelled with him about his sadaqah (i.e. zakat), and AbuJahm struck him and wounded his head. His people came to the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) and said: Revenge, Apostle of Allah! The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: You may have so much and so much. But they did not agree. He again said: You may have so much and so much. But they did not agree. He again said: You may have so much and so much. So they agreed. The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: I am going to address the people in the afternoon and tell them about your consent. They said: Yes. Addressing (the people), the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) said: These people of faith came to me asking for revenge. I presented them with so much and so much and they agreed. Do you agree? They said: No. The immigrants (muhajirun) intended (to take revenge) on them. But the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) commanded them to refrain and they refrained. He then called them and increased (the amount), and asked: Do you agree? They replied: Yes. He said: I am going to address the people and tell them about your consent. They said: Yes. The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) addressed and said: Do you agree? They said: Yes.
|| 4521 || Narrated AbuSa'id al-Khudri: When the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) was distributing something, a man came towards him and bent down on him. The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) struck him with a bough and his face was wounded. The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) said to him: Come and take retaliation. He said: no, I have forgiven, Apostle of Allah!.
|| 4522 || Narrated Umar ibn al-Khattab: I did not send my collectors (of zakat) so that they strike your bodies and that they take your property. If that is done with someone and he appeals to me, I shall take retaliation on him. Amr ibn al-'As said: If any man (i.e. governor) inflicts disciplinary punishment on his subjects, would you take retaliation on him too? He said: Yes, by Him in Whose hand my soul is, I shall take retaliation on him. I saw that the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) has given retaliation on himself.
|| 4523 || Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) Said: The disputants should refrain from taking retaliation. The one who is nearer should forgive first and then the one who is next to him, even if (the one who forgives) were a woman.
|| 4526 || Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As: The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) gave judgment that if anyone is killed accidentally, his blood-wit should be one hundred camels: thirty she-camels which had entered their second year, thirty she-camels which had entered their third year, thirty she-camels which had entered their fourth year, and ten male camels which had entered their third year.
|| 4527 || Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As: The value of the blood-money at the time of the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) was eight hundred dinars or eight thousand dirhams, and the blood-money for the people of the Book was half of that for Muslims. He said: This applied till Umar (Allah be pleased with him) became caliph and he made a speech in which he said: Take note! Camels have become dear. So Umar fixed the value for those who possessed gold at one thousand dinars, for those who possessed silver at twelve thousand (dirhams), for those who possessed cattle at two hundred cows, for those who possessed sheep at two thousand sheep, and for those who possessed suits of clothing at two hundred suits. He left the blood-money for dhimmis (protected people) as it was, not raising it in proportion to the increase he made in the blood-wit.
