Jabir b. Abdullah (Allah be pleased with them) heard Messenger of Allah ﷺ say: He who has surplus of land should either cultivate it himself, or let his brother cultivate it, an should not sell it. I (the narrator) said to Sa'id: What does his statement" do not sell it" mean? Does it imply" rent"? He said: Yes.
وَحَدَّثَنِي حَجَّاجُ بْنُ الشَّاعِرِ، حَدَّثَنَا عُبَيْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ عَبْدِ الْمَجِيدِ، حَدَّثَنَا سَلِيمُ بْنُ، حَيَّانَ حَدَّثَنَا سَعِيدُ بْنُ مِينَاءَ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ جَابِرَ بْنَ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، يَقُولُ إِنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏
"‏ مَنْ كَانَ لَهُ فَضْلُ أَرْضٍ فَلْيَزْرَعْهَا أَوْ لِيُزْرِعْهَا أَخَاهُ وَلاَ تَبِيعُوهَا ‏"‏ ‏.‏ فَقُلْتُ لِسَعِيدٍ مَا قَوْلُهُ وَلاَ تَبِيعُوهَا يَعْنِي الْكِرَاءَ ‏.‏ قَالَ نَعَمْ ‏.‏
