The basis of this is that since the seller placed the condition of choice, the article remains his property. When the buyer took possession of the article, he was in actual fact taking hold of the seller’s property. If it is destroyed in his (buyer’s) possession during this period, then he (the buyer) is responsible. He must replace the item, if it is such that it can be replaced (e.g. something which is weighed or measured); or he must compensate the seller the value of the destroyed item if it cannot be replaced by a similar item (e.g. a sheep) (Kitaabul Buyoo).
