Ruling 2256

If a person forms an agreement with someone to, for example, place at his disposal some fruit trees – the fruits of which either belong to him or are under his discretion – for a specific period of time so that he may tend to and water them, and in return take an agreed portion of the fruits for himself, then such a transaction (muʿāmalah) is called a ‘tree tending contract’.
