How authentic is the Hadith that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) disliked eating testicles and other parts of a sheep? Can you quote the full Hadith please?



This narration is recorded in Kitabul Athar of Imam Muhammad Ibn Hasan Ash Shaybani and other Hadith collections.

Mujahid (rahimahullah) relates, “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) disliked eating seven things from the sheep; the gall bladder, the urinary bladder, the glands, the vulva, the penis, the testicles and the blood.”

(Kitabul Athar, Hadith: 821, Musannaf ‘Abdur Razzaq, Hadith: 8771, Al Marasil of Imam Abi Dawud, Hadith: 465 and As Sunanul Kubra of Imam Bayhaqi, vol. 10 pg. 7)


Al Muhaddith Zafar Ahmad ‘Uthmani (rahimahullah) has graded the chain authentic or sound (sahih or hasan)

(I’ilaus Sunan, vol. 17 pg. 129/130)


Note: Kindly refer to a Mufti/Darul Ifta for a fatwa on this issue.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
