People who do not eat chicken


Shaykh Sultaan al-‘Eed said:

I have met some people who do not eat chicken, and then I found [the following narration] in Saheeh al-Bukhaaree (no.4385), on the authority of Zahdam:

Abu Moosaa al-Ash’aree was eating chicken for lunch, and amongst the people was a man who was sitting, so Abu Moosaa called him over [to join him] for lunch.

So he said: “I had seen it eat something [dirty], and so I detested [to eat] it.”

So Abu Moosaa said to him: “Come here [and eat], for indeed I saw the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) eat it.”
