Ruling 2350

If a person conveys to the owner of the property that he is not prepared to safeguard his property, and he does not take the property from him but the owner nevertheless places it with him and leaves, and the property perishes, then the safe keeper is not responsible for it. However, the recommended precaution (al‑iḥtiyāṭ al‑mustaḥabb) is that he should, if possible, safeguard it.
