Opinion FromOpinionExplanation
Imam ShafiBones and hair are also maytaActivity of growth and food intake depicts life and hence when the activity of growth and food intake is absent from hair and bones, they also become mayta
Imam Abu HanifaBones and hair are not maytaThe term "life" is only applied to the senses, and as hair and bones do not possess the capacity to sense, they are not mayta. The evidence proving that food intake and growth are not that kind of life to the absence of which the term mayta can be applied is based on the narration from AbuWaqid
Imam MalikBones are mayta but not hairBones have the capacity to sense while hair don't.
