أبي رحمه الله قال حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله قال: حدثنا محمد بن الحسين عن ابن أبي عمير عن ابن اذينة عن زرارة ومحمد بن مسلم عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام قال سألته عن اكل الحمر الاهلية، فقال: نهي رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله عن اكلها يوم خيبر وانما نهي عن أكلها لانها كانت حمولة للناس، وانما الحرام ما حرم الله تعالى في القرآن.


1. My father said, ‘Sa’ad Bin Abdullah narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Al Husayn, from Ibn Abu Umeyr, from Ibn Azina, from Zarara and Muhammad Bin Muslim, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (asws), said, ‘I asked him (asws) about eating the domesticated donkey. So he (asws) said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) forbade from eating it on the day of Khyber. But rather, he (saww) forbade from eating it, because it was a carrier for the people, and, but rather, Forbidden is what Allah (azwj) the High Prohibited in the Quran’.




حدثنا محمد بن الحسن رحمه الله قال: حدثنا محمد بن الحسن الصفار + عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى عن الحسين بن سعيد عن حماد عن حريز عن محمد بن مسلم عن أبي جعفر (ع) قال: نهي رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله عن اكل لحوم الحمر وانما نهى عنها من أجل ظهورها مخافة أن يفنونها وليست الحمير بحرام، ثم قرأ هذه الآية (قل لا اجد فيما اوحى إلي محرما على طاعم يطعمه) إلى آخر الآية.


2. Muhammad Bin Al Hassan narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Al Hassan Al Saffar, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Isa, from Al Husayn Bin Saeed, from Hamaad, from Hareyz, from Muhammad Bin Muslim, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (asws) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) forbade from eating the flesh of the donkey. But rather, he (saww) forbade it due to its back (for riding), fearing that lest it would be exterminated; and the donkeys are not Prohibited’. Then he (asws) recited this Verse [6:145] Say: I do not find in that which has been Revealed to me anything Forbidden for an eater to eat up to the end of the Verse’.




أبي رحمه الله قال: حدثنا عبد الله بن جعفر الحميري عن هارون بن مسلم قال: حدثنا أبو الحسن الليثى قال: حدثني جعفر بن محمد (ع) قال: سئل أبي عليه السلام عن لحوم الحمر الاهلية، قال: نهى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله عن أكلها لانها كانت حمولة للناس يومئذ. وانما الحرام ما حرم الله في القرآن.


3. My father said, ‘Abdullah Bin Ja’far Al Humeyri narrated to us, from Haroun Bin Muslim, from Abu Al Hassan Al Laysi, (It has been narrated) from Ja’far Bin Muhammad (asws) having said: ‘My (asws) father (asws) was asked about flesh of the domesticated donkey. He (asws) said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) forbade from eating it because it was a carried for the people in those days. But rather, the Prohibited is what Allah (azwj) Prohibited in the Quran’.




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 أن الرضا عليه السلام كتب إليه فيما كتب من جواب مسائله كره اكل لحوم البغال والحمر والاهلية، لحاجة الناس إلى ظهورها واستعمالها، والخوف من فنائها لقلتها لا لقذر خلقها ولا لقذر غذائها.


4. Ali Bin Ahmad narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Abu Abdullah, from Muhammad Ibn Ismail, from Ali Bin Al Abbas, from Al Qasim Bin Al Rabie Al Sahaaf, (It has been narrated) from Muhammad Bin Sinan that Al-Reza (asws) wrote to him in answer to what he had asked him (asws): ‘It is disliked, eating the flesh of the mules, and the domesticated donkey, due to the need of the people to its back (for riding/carrying load), and its utilisation, and the fear from its extermination due to its scarcity, not due to the filthy creation of it, nor the filthy diet of it’.
