Hadith #9

عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ إِسْمَاعِيلَ بْنِ مَرَّارٍ عَنْ يُونُسَ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ سِنَانٍ قَالَ سَأَلْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) عَنْ صَيْدِ الْبَازِي إِذَا صَادَ وَ قَتَلَ وَ أَكَلَ مِنْهُ آكُلُ مِنْ فَضْلِهِ أَمْ لَا فَقَالَ أَمَّا مَا أَكَلَتِ الطَّيْرُ فَلَا تَأْكُلْ إِلَّا أَنْ تُذَكِّيَهُ .

9. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ’Isma’il ibn Marrar from Yunus from ‘Abd Allah ibn Sinan who has said the following: “I once asked abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about the hunting of falcons which it catches and eats thereof; if the remaining can be used for food. He (the Imam) said, ‘Whatever birds eat do not use it for food unless you slaughter it properly.’”
