Decision in the Case of a Cow and a Camel


Decision in the Case of a Cow and a Camel

A man catching hold of the opening of the shirt of another man came to Hazrat Omar, (RA) and told him that the other man’s cow had torn off the belly of the camel of the appellant which resulted in its death. Saying this he requested Hat Omar (RA) for ordering the accused to pay ‘full penalty of his camel to him. Hazrat Omar (RA) said :

“No penalty on the quadrupeds.”

Hearing this order Hazrat Ali (A) said to Hazrat Omar(RA) : “I have heard the Holy Prophet saying :

“No man can put another man to loss.” He then added :

“If the accused person had tied his cow on the way of the camel, he has to pay the penalty, otherwise not.”

On enquiry it was revealed that the owner of the cow had actually tied his cow on the way of the camel.

Hazrat Omar (RA) then ordered the accused to pay full penalty of the camel to his owner. (Qazaand Tehas: p. 80; Qaza p. 158; , Abu Turab’ (Urdu translation) vol. 2. by Allama Jazaeri, p. 244).
