حدثنا علي بن أحمد قال: حدثنا محمد بن أبي عبد الله عن محمد بن اسماعيل عن علي بن العباس قال حدثنا القاسم بن الربيع الصحاف عن محمد بن سنان ان أبا الحسن الرضا (ع) كتب إليه فيما كتب من جواب مسائله حرم ما أهل به لغير الله للذي أوجب على خلقه من الاقرار به وذكر اسمه على الذبايح المحللة ولئلا يساوي بين ما تقرب به إليه وما جعل عبادة الشياطين والاثان، لان في تسمية الله عزوجل الاقرار بربوبيته وتوحيده، وما في الاهلال لغير الله من الشرك والتقريب إلى غيره ليكون ذكر الله وتسميته على الذبيحة فرقا بين ما أحل وبين ما حرم.


1. Ali Bin Ahmad narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Abu Abdullah, from Muhammad Bin Ismail, from Ali Bin Al Abbas, from Al Qasim Al Rabie Al Sahaf, (It has been narrated) from Muhammad Bin Sinan that Abu Al-Hassan Al-Reza (asws) wrote to him in answer to his question: ‘Forbidden is what is slaughtered for other than Allah (azwj) due to Him (azwj) having Obligated upon His (azwj) creatures from the acceptance of Him (azwj), and Mentioning of His (azwj) Name upon the slaughter for it to be Permissible and perhaps there may be considered to be equal in between what is for getting closer to Him (azwj) and what is made for the worshipping of the devils and the idols; because in the Naming of Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic is the acceptance with His (azwj) Lordship and His (azwj) Oneness, and what is slaughtered for other than Allah (azwj), from the Polytheism and the getting closer to others, so that the Mentioning of Allah (azwj), and Naming Him (azwj) upon the slaughter would be the differentiating criterion between what is Permissible and what is Prohibited’.
