ḤADĪTH OF THE DAY
“ The Messenger of God, peace and blessings of God be upon him, said, "Injuries sustained by animals are non-compensable (1), and those at mines and wells are non-compensable (2), and from buried treasures, [give away] a fifth (3)." Footnotes: 1. Only if that was during daytime or if they were unattended, otherwise their owner is liable for any damage they bring about. 2. If a person was employed to dig up a mine or well, and it accidently collapses killing him, his employer will not be liable for his death. This also applies if a person accidently falls in a well. 3. i.e. as prescribed alms. Mined metals, however, do not belong to this category. ”
