Others:
some juristIt is due either in wheat, or dates, or barley, or in aqit(cheese made from sour milk), and that this is a choice of the person on whom it is obligatory.From the narration of Abu Said al-Khudri they understood a choice. Thus they said that any of these things he pays in is sufficient
