Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) stretched his hand towards It, whereupon some of the women who had been in the house of Maimuna said: Inform Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) what he intends to eat. Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) lifted his hand. I said: Messenger of Allaah, Is it forbidden? He said: No. It is not found in the land of my people, and I feel that I have no liking for it.

It was rare that some food was presented to the Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) and it was not mentioned or named. While Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) was about to stretch forth his hand towards the lizard, a woman from amongst the women present there informed the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) what they had presented to him. They said: Messenger of Allaah, it is a lizard. Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) withdrew his hand, whereupon Khalid b. Walid said: Messenger of Allaah, is a lizard forbidden? There opon he said: No, but it is not found in the land of my people, and I feel that I have no liking for it.

She presented to Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) the flesh of a lizard which Umm Hufaid daughter of al-Harith had brought from Najd, and she had been married to a person belonging to Banu Ja'far. It was the habit of Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) not to eat anything until he knew what that was. The rest of the hadith is the same but with this (addition):" Ibn al-Asamm narrated it from Maimuna and he was under her care."

He ate out of the clarified butter and cheese, but lett the lizard finding no liking for it. But it was eaten on the table of Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam).

Yazid b. al-Asamm reported: A newly wedded person of Medina invited us to a wedding feast, and he served us thirteen lizards. There were those who ate it and those who abandoned it. I met Ibn 'Abbas the next day, and informed him (about this) in the presence of many persons. Some of them said that the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) had observed: I neither eat it nor forbid (anyone) from eating it, nor declare it to be unlawful. Thereupon Ibn 'Abbas said: Sad it is what you say! Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) has not been sent, but (to declare in clear words) the lawful and the unlawful (things). We were once with Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) as he was with Maimuna, and there were with him al-Fadl b. 'Abbas, Khalid b. Walid and some women (also) when a tray of food containing flesh was presented to him. As Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) was about to eat that, Maimuna said: It is the flesh of the lizard. He withdrew his hand saying: That is the flesh which I never eat; but he said to them (those who were present there): You may eat. Al-Fadl ate out of that, so did Khalid b Walid, and the women. Maimuna (however) said: I do not eat anything but that which Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) eats.

No. 4797

Abu Zubair reported that he heard Jabir b. 'Abdullah saying that there was presented to Allaah's Messenger (the flesh) of the lizard, but he refused to eat that, saying: I do not know; perhaps it (lizard) might (be one of those natives of) the distant past whose (forms) had beer, distorted.

No. 4798

Abu Zubair reported: I asked Jabir about ithe eating) of the lizard, whereupon he said: Don't eat that as he (the Prophet) felt disgust. He (the narrator) said that Umar b. al-Khattab reminded: Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) did not declare it to be unlawful. Allaah, the Exalted and Majestic, has (made it a source) of benefit for more than one (persons). It is a common diet of the shepherds. Had it been with me, I would have eaten that.

No. 4799

Abu Sa'id reported that a person said: Messenger of Allaah, we live in a land abounding in lizards, so what do you command or what verdict you give (about eating of it)? Thereupon he said: It was mentioned to me that a people from among Bani Isra'il were distorted (so there is a likelihood that those people might have been distorted in the shape of lizards). So he neither commanded (us to eat that) nor forbade (us). Abu Sa'id said: After some time Umar said: Allaah, the Exalted and Majestic, has made it (a source of) benefit for more than one (person), for it is the common diet of shepherds. Had it been with me, I would have eaten that. Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) disliked it.

Abu Sa'id reported that an Arab of the desert came to Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) and said: I live in a low land abounding in lizards, and these are the common diet of my family, but he (the Prophet) did not make any reply. We said to him: Repeat it (your problem) and so he repeated it, but he did not make any reply. (It was repeated thrice ) Then Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) called him out at the third time saying: O man of the desert, verily Allaah cursed or showed wrath to a tribe of Bani Isra'il and distorted them to beasts which move on the earth. I do not know, perhaps this (lizard) may be one of them. So I do not eat it, nor do I prohibit the eating of it.
