Hadith on Eating Dabb

Sufyaan [ibn Uyayanah] narrated to us from Abdullaah ibn Deenaar from Abdullaah ibn Umar ~ who said,

“The Prophet ~ was asked about the [ruling on eating] the dabb. , and he replied, ‘I neither eat it, nor forbid it.”‘

(Musnad Ahmad, Vol. 2, p. 9. The isnaad of this hadeeth is saheeh. according to the conditions set by al-Bukhaaree and Muslim.)



 Dabb is a large spine-tailed lizard (Uromastix spinipes) found in Egypt, Arabia and Palestine. The Prophet ~disliked eating it even though many Arabs used to eat it but, he did not like eating it for mere personal reasons.

Reports of Imaam Ahmad that have only three narrators between him and the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him.
