Rights of the Seller
Salim b. ‘Abdullah reported on the authority of his father (Allah be pleased with him): I heard the Messenger of Allah (Sall Allah-o-alaihe wa sallam) saying: Whoever bought a palm-tree after the fruit-buds are apparent, the fruit is for the seller, except otherwise provided explicitly (in the contract of sale) by the buyer. Whoever buys a slave, who has property with him, it (i.e. the property) belongs to one who sells it except provided otherwise by the buyer.
