Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of the transgressing and the hostile
Hadith #1

أبي - رحمه الله - قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن أحمد بن محمد، عن البزنطي، عمن ذكره، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام في قول الله عز وجل: " فمن اضطر غير باغ ولا عاد " قال: الباغي: الذي يخرج على الامام، والعادي: الذي يقطع الطريق، لا يحل لهما الميتة.

1. My father, may Allah grant him mercy, said: We were told by Sa’d bin Abdullah, from Ahmad bin Muhammed, from al-Bazanti, from the one he mentioned, from Abu Abdillah, peace be upon him, with regards to the saying of Allah, Exalted and Glorious is He: «Then, the one who is urged, (who is) not being transgressing nor hostile» (2:174). He said: The transgressing is the one who goes out against the Imam, and the hostile is the one who interrupts the road; to them, dead meat (of a non-slaughtered animal) is impermissible.
