From: Sahih Bukhari
Chapter No. 39, Representation or Authorisation, Business by Proxy
Hadith No: 505
Narrated/Authority of Kab bin Malik
We had some sheep which used to graze at Sala. One of our slavegirls saw a sheep dying and she broke a stone and slaughtered the sheep with it. My father said to the people, "Don't eat it till I ask the Prophet (SAW) about it (or till I send somebody to ask the Prophet (SAW))." So, he asked or sent somebody to ask the Prophet (SAW), and the Prophet (SAW) permitted him to eat it. Ubaidullah (a sub-narrator) said, "I admire that girl, for though she was a slave-girl, she dared to slaughter the sheep."
