Back to book

عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ حَنَانِ بْنِ سَدِيرٍ قَالَ سُئِلَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) وَ أَنَا حَاضِرٌ عِنْدَهُ عَنْ جَدْيٍ يَرْضِعُ مِنْ خِنْزِيرَةٍ حَتَّى كَبِرَ وَ شَبَّ وَ اشْتَدَّ عَظْمُهُ ثُمَّ إِنَّ رَجُلًا اسْتَفْحَلَهُ فِي غَنَمِهِ فَأُخْرِجَ لَهُ نَسْلٌ فَقَالَ أَمَّا مَا عَرَفْتَ مِنْ نَسْلِهِ بِعَيْنِهِ فَلَا تَقْرَبَنَّهُ وَ أَمَّا مَا لَمْ تَعْرِفْهُ فَكُلْهُ فَهُوَ بِمَنْزِلَةِ الْجُبُنِّ وَ لَا تَسْأَلْ عَنْهُ .


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from Hanan ibn Sadir who has said the following: “Once abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, was asked, when I was with him (the Imam) about the young goat fed with milk from pigs until it grew up and became of strong bones; then a man used it for impregnating the flock of his sheep and young were produced. He (the Imam) said, ‘If you can find out its offspring exactly, then do not get close to it; but you can use for food those that you cannot recognize because it is like cheese; and do not ask about it.’”

عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ قَالَ كَتَبْتُ إِلَيْهِ ( عليه السلام ) جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ مِنْ كُلِّ سُوءٍ امْرَأَةٌ أَرْضَعَتْ عَنَاقاً حَتَّى فُطِمَتْ وَ كَبِرَتْ وَ ضَرَبَهَا الْفَحْلُ ثُمَّ وَضَعَتْ أَ يَجُوزُ أَنْ يُؤْكَلَ لَحْمُهَا وَ لَبَنُهَا فَكَتَبَ ( عليه السلام ) فِعْلٌ مَكْرُوهٌ وَ لَا بَأْسَ بِهِ .


4. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from who has said the following: “I once wrote to him (the Imam), ‘Alayhi al-Salam, saying, ‘I pray to Allah to keep my soul in service for your cause against all evil, a woman has breastfed a young she-goat and weaned it. It grew up and gave birth. Is it permissible to use its milk and flesh for food?’ He (the Imam) wrote back saying, ‘It is an undesirable act but it is not unlawful.’ ”
