Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of the mud whom Allah prevented to eat
Hadith #1

حدثنا أبي - رحمه الله - قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، قال: حدثني أحمد بن أبي عبد الله، قال حدثني المعاذي، عن معمر، عن أبي الحسن عليه السلام قال: قلت له: ما يروي الناس في الطين وكراهته؟ قال: إنما ذاك المبلول وذاك المدر.

1. We were told by my father, may Allah grant him mercy, that he said: We were told by Sa’d bin Abdullah, from Ahmad bin Abi Abdillah, that he said: I was told by al-Mu’adhi, from Mu’ammar, from Abu’l-Hasan, peace be upon him, that he said: I said to him: What do the people narrate with regards to mud and the dislike of it? He said: That is only with regards to the moisturized, and that is clay.

Hadith #2

وروي أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله نهى عن أكل المدر. حدثني بذلك محمد بن الحسن، - رضي الله عنه - قال: حدثنا محمد بن الحسن الصفار، عن أحمد بن أبي عبد الله.

2. It was narrated that the Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, forbade the eating of clay. I was told of that by Muhammed bin Hasan, may Allah be pleased with him, that he said: We were told by Muhammed bin Hasan al-Saffar, from Ahmad bin Abi Abdillah.
