Selling Unripe Fruit – Who Suffers the Loss? (Hadith No. 1898)

Bismillah.

Ahadith 1893 – 1897 (below) are repeats. Read the post here.

Volume 3, Book 34, Number 398 :
Zaid bin Thabit (radiallaahu `anhu) said,
“In the lifetime of Allah’s Messenger (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam), the people used to trade with fruits. When they cut their date-fruits and the purchasers came to recieve their rights, the seller would say, ‘My dates have got rotten, they are blighted with disease, they are afflicted with Qusham (a disease which causes the fruit to fall before ripening).’ They would go on complaining of defects in their purchases. Allah’s Messenger (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Do not sell the fruits before their benefit is evident (i.e. free from all the dangers of being spoiled or blighted), by way of advice for they quarrelled too much.” Kharija bin Zaid bin Thabit said that Zaid bin Thabit (radiallaahu `anhu) used not to sell the fruits of his land till Pleiades appeared and one could distinguish the yellow fruits from the red (ripe) ones.

Volume 3, Book 34, Number 399 :
Narrated by ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu)
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) forbade the sale of fruits till their benefit is evident. He forbade both the seller and the buyer (such sale).

Volume 3, Book 34, Number 400 :
Narrated by Anas (radiallaahu `anhu)
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) forbade the sale of date fruits till they were ripe. Abu ‘Abdullah (Al-Bukhari) said, “That means till they were red (can be eaten).”

Volume 3, Book 34, Number 401 :
Narrated by Jabir bin ‘Abdullah (radiallaahu `anhu)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) forbade the s of (date) fruits till they were red or yellow and fit for eating.

Volume 3, Book 34, Number 402 :
Narrated by Anas bin Malik (radiallaahu `anhu)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) forbade the sale of fruits till their benefit is evident; and the sale of date palms till the dates are almost ripe. He was asked what ‘are almost ripe’ meant. He replied, “Got red and yellow.”

Today’s Hadith:

Volume 3, Book 34, Number 403 :
Narrated by Anas bin Malik (radiallaahu `anhu)
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) forbade the sale of fruits till they are almost ripe. He was asked what is meant by ‘are almost ripe.’ He replied, “Till they become red.” Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) further said, “If Allah spoiled the fruits, what right would one have to take the money of one’s brother (i.e. other people)?” Narrated Ibn Shihab: If somebody bought fruits before their benefit is evident and then the fruits were spoiled with blights, the loss would be suffered by the owner (not the buyer). Narrated Salim bin ‘Abdullah from Ibn Umar (radiallaahu `anhu): Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Do not sell or buy fruits before their benefit was evident and do not sell fresh fruits (dates) for dried dates.”

If someone bought unripe/spoiled fruit from someone, the loss will be suffered by the seller, not the buyer. Re-exchange of money and fruit to take place so the owner ends up with his fruit and the buyer has his money.
