Hadith #2

عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ حَمَّادٍ عَنِ الْحَلَبِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) أَنَّهُ سُئِلَ عَمَّا صَرَعَ الْمِعْرَاضُ مِنَ الصَّيْدِ فَقَالَ إِنْ لَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ نَبْلٌ غَيْرُ الْمِعْرَاضِ وَ ذَكَرَ اسْمَ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ عَلَيْهِ فَلْيَأْكُلْ مَا قَتَلَ قُلْتُ وَ إِنْ كَانَ لَهُ نَبْلٌ غَيْرُهُ قَالَ لَا .

2. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Hammad from al-Halabiy who has said the following: “Once abu ’Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, was asked about the prey that falls because of flareless arrow. He (the Imam) said, ‘If he does not have any other arrow and has mentioned the name of Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, he can use it for food. If he has other arrows then he cannot use it for food.’”
