Yahya related to me from Malik, from Yahya ibn Said, that he heard Said ibn al-Musayyab relating from Abu Hurayra that he was once coming back from Bahrayn, and, when he reached ar-Rabadha, he found a caravan of people from Iraq in ihram, who asked him whether they could eat the meat of some game which they had found with the people of ar- Rabadha, and he told them they could eat it. He said, "Afterwards I had doubts about what I had told them to do, so when I got back to Madina I mentioned the matter to Umar ibn al-Khattab and he said, 'What did you tell them to do?' I said, ' I told them to eat it.' Umar ibn al-Khattab said, threatening me, 'If you had told them to do anything else I would have done something to you.' "
وَحَدَّثَنِي عَنْ مَالِكٍ، عَنْ يَحْيَى بْنِ سَعِيدٍ، أَنَّهُ سَمِعَ سَعِيدَ بْنَ الْمُسَيَّبِ، يُحَدِّثُ عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، أَنَّهُ أَقْبَلَ مِنَ الْبَحْرَيْنِ حَتَّى إِذَا كَانَ بِالرَّبَذَةِ وَجَدَ رَكْبًا مِنْ أَهْلِ الْعِرَاقِ مُحْرِمِينَ فَسَأَلُوهُ عَنْ لَحْمِ صَيْدٍ وَجَدُوهُ عِنْدَ أَهْلِ الرَّبَذَةِ فَأَمَرَهُمْ بِأَكْلِهِ قَالَ ثُمَّ إِنِّي شَكَكْتُ فِيمَا أَمَرْتُهُمْ بِهِ فَلَمَّا قَدِمْتُ الْمَدِينَةَ ذَكَرْتُ ذَلِكَ لِعُمَرَ بْنِ الْخَطَّابِ فَقَالَ عُمَرُ مَاذَا أَمَرْتَهُمْ بِهِ فَقَالَ أَمَرْتُهُمْ بِأَكْلِهِ ‏.‏ فَقَالَ عُمَرُ بْنُ الْخَطَّابِ لَوْ أَمَرْتَهُمْ بِغَيْرِ ذَلِكَ لَفَعَلْتُ بِكَ يَتَوَاعَدُهُ ‏.‏
