Clarification on the link of a Hadith to the chapter in Sahih Muslim

Question

In Sahih Muslim, what is the link of the following Hadith to the chapter ‘باب نسخ الوضوء مما مست النار’:

أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم شرب لبنا ثم دعا بماء فتمضمض وقال إن له دسما

 

Answer

The narration in question is as follows:

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) drank milk and and then [called for water] and rinsed his mouth, saying, “It has fat in it.”

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 211 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 358. See here)

 

It is possible that since milk contains fatty residue just like meat [which is cooked on fire], therefore the Hadith in question was cited with the other Hadiths on the topic mentioned in your question.

(Refer: Fathul Bari, Hadith: 211 and Al Bahrul Muhituth Thajjaj, vol. 8 pg. 343)

 

Note: The chapters in Sahih Muslim were added by commentators and not by Imam Muslim. See here.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
