Hadith #16

16- عَنْهُ عَنِ ابْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنْ رَجُلٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) قَالَ سُئِلَ وَأَنَا حَاضِرٌ عَنِ امْرَأَةٍ أَرْضَعَتْ غُلاماً مَمْلُوكاً لَهَا مِنْ لَبَنِهَا حَتَّى فَطَمَتْهُ هَلْ لَهَا أَنْ تَبِيعَهُ قَالَ فَقَالَ لا هُوَ ابْنُهَا مِنَ الرَّضَاعَةِ حَرُمَ عَلَيْهَا بَيْعُهُ وَأَكْلُ ثَمَنِهِ قَالَ ثُمَّ قَالَ أَلَيْسَ رَسُولُ اللهِ (صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) قَالَ يَحْرُمُ مِنَ الرَّضَاعِ مَا يَحْرُمُ مِنَ النَّسَبِ.

16. It is narrated from the narrator of the previous Hadith from ibn Sinan from a man who has said the following: “This is concerning a question before abu ‘Abd Allah, Alayhi al-Salam, when I was present, about the case of a woman who has breastfed her own slave boy from her milk until weaning; if she can sell him. He (the narrator) has said, that he (the Imam) said, ‘No, because he is her son of breastfeeding. Selling him and consuming his price is unlawful for her.’ He (the Imam) then said, ‘Has the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, not said, “Whoever is unlawful for marriage because of lineage is unlawful because breastfeeding.’””
