102. The reason due to which Rasool-Allah (saww) used to love (eating) the arm (of the sheep) much more than the rest of the parts of the sheep

Back to book

حدثنا محمد بن الحسن رحمه الله قال: حدثنا محمد بن يحيى العطار عن محمد بن احمد، عن علي بن الريان عبيدالله بن عبد الله الواسطي عن واصل بن سليمان أو عن درست يرفعه إلى أبى عبد الله " ع " قال: قلت له لم كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله يحب الذراع اكثر من حبه لسائر اعضاء الشاة قال: فقال لان آدم قرب قربانا عن الانبياء من ذريته فسمى لكل نبي عضوا وسمى لرسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله الذارع فمن ثم كان يحب الذراع ويشتهيها ويحبها ويفضلها.


1. Muhammad Bin Al Hassan narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Yahya Al Ataar, from Muhammad Bin Ahmad, from Ali Bin Al Rayan Ubeydullah Bin Abdullah Al Wasity, from Wasil Bin Suleyman, or from Darast, (It has been narrated) raising it to Abu Abdullah (asws), said, ‘I said to him (asws), ‘Why was it that Rasool-Allah (azwj) loved (eating) the arm (of the sheep) much more than he (saww) loved the rest of the parts of the sheep?’ So he (asws) said: ‘Because Adam (as) offered an offering (sacrifice) on behalf of the Prophets (as) from his (as) offspring, so he (as) named a part for every Prophet (as), and named the arm for Rasool-Allah (azwj). Thus, from then on, he (saww) used to love (eating) the arm. He (saww) coveted (desired) it, and loved it, and preferred it’.




وفي حديث آخر ان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله كان يحب الذراع لقربها من المرعى وبعدها من المبال.


2. And in another Hadeeth – ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) used to love (eating) the arm (of the sheep) due to its proximity from the pastures and its remoteness from the private parts’.
