This is forbidden in a trad. (Ṣ, Mgh, O, Mṣb, &c.) It is said in a trad. of the Prophet on this subject, لَا يَغْلَقُ بِمَا فِيهِ لَكَ غُنْمُهُ وُعَلَيْكَ غُرْمُهُ [meaning It shall not become a forfeit to the receiver with what is involved in it: (or, accord. to an explanation of the first clause in the Mṣb, it shall not become a rightful possession to the receiver for the debt for which it was pledged:) to thee shall pertain the regaining of it, and its increase, and growth, and excess in value, if such there be, and upon thee shall be the obligation of the debt belonging to it, and the bearing of any unavoidable damage that it may have sustained]: (O:) or لَهُ غُنْمُهُ وَعَلَيْهِ غُرْمُهُ i. e., accord. to AʼObeyd, to him (the owner) it shall return, and to him shall pertain its increase [if there be any], and if it have become defective, or have perished, [unavoidably,] he shall be responsible for it and shall pay the debt to him to whom it is owed without being compensated by [the remission of] aught of the debt: (Mṣb:) or لَكَ غُنْمُهُ وَعَلَيْهِ غُرْمُهُ, which means to thee (the pledger) shall pertain the increase of it (the pledge), and its growth, and its excess in value, [if it have any,] and upon him (the receiver of it) shall be the responsibility [to make compensation] for it if it perish [through his fault, in his possession], (O. [There are other, somewhat different, readings and explanations of this trad. in the Mgh, &c.; but what I have here given, from the O and Mṣb, appear to me to be the most approvable. See also غُنْمٌ: and see art. رهن.]) Zuheyr says,

* وَفَارَقَتْكَ بِرَهْنٍ لَا فَكَاكَ لَهُ *
