Left Slaves working on the Swahili Coast 1850
Sahnun ibn Sa’id ibn Habib at-Tanukhi:
al-Mudawwana al-Kubra
(The Great law Compilation)
(d 854) (Tunis)

This book is referred to as al Umm or the Mother, of the Maliki school

In the Mudawwana volume X p. 183  the Hadam of Sind, the Zang and similar  groups are placed among the wild slaves.


Those slaves devoid of all attraction like the Zang from south of Ethiopia, to be used in household duties, and in who a pregnancy would not influence the price or only little (for those slaves it was not important to state that they were pregnant when being sold)

I said: Did Malik dislike profiting from the bones of the Maytah (dead animal not slaughtered according to Sharia).  Malik said:  I do not think that the Maytah bones should be sold or bought neither should the tusk of the elephant. No one should trade with it or comb with its combs or anoint one’s body with its grease.  Ibn Rushd said:  Malik disliked the horn but did not forbid it.


Note: Sahnun is an authority in Maliki jurisprudence.
