حدثنا علي بن أحمد رحمه الله قال: حدثنا محمد بن أبي عبد الله عن محمد ابن اسماعيل عن علي بن العباس قال: حدثنا القاسم بن الربيع الصحاف عن محمد بن سنان، ان ابا الحسن الرضا عليه السلام كتب إليه فيما كتب من جواب مسائله: أحل الله تعالى البقر والغنم والابل لكثرتها وامكان وجودها، وتحليل بقر الوحش وغيرها من اصناف ما يؤكل من الوحش المحللة، لان غذائها غير مكروه ولا محرم ولا هي مضرة بعضها ببعض ولا مضرة بالانس ولا في خلقها تشويه.

1. Ali Bin Ahmad narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Abu Abdullah, from Muhammad Bin Ismail, from Ali Bin Al Abbas, from Al Qasim Bin Al Rabie Al Sahaf, (It has been narrated) from Muhammad Bin Sinan that Abu Al-Hassan Al-Reza (sws) wrote to him in answer to what he has asked him (a.s.): ‘Allah (azwj) the High has Permitted the cow, and the sheep, and the camel due to their abundance and the possibility of finding these. And the Permissibility of the wild cows and other varieties of what is eaten from the wild (animals), the Permitted ones, because their consumption (what they eat) is not abhorrent, nor Prohibited, nor it is harmful to each other, nor harmful to the human beings, nor is there any deformities in their creation’.
