Prohibition for a Slave to run away from his Master

Imam Al-Nawawi’s Riyad-us-Saliheen
Chapter 349
Prohibition for a Slave to run away from his Master

1768. Jarir bin Abdullah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “If a slave runs away from his master, his responsibility to him is absolved.”
[Muslim].

1769. Jarir bin Abdullah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “When the slave runs away from his master, his Salat (prayer) will not be accepted.”
[Muslim].

Another narration is: “He is guilty of disbelief (i.e., in case he believes in the lawfulness of doing so).”
