It was narrated from 'Aishah that Judamah bint Wahb told her that the Messenger of Allah said:

"I was thinking of forbidding Ghilah until I remembered that it is done by the Persians and Romans" -(one of the narrators) Ishaq said: "(They) do that -and it does not harm their children."
أَخْبَرَنَا عُبَيْدُ اللَّهِ، وَإِسْحَاقُ بْنُ مَنْصُورٍ، عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ، عَنْ مَالِكٍ، عَنْ أَبِي الأَسْوَدِ، عَنْ عُرْوَةَ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، أَنَّ جُدَامَةَ بِنْتَ وَهْبٍ، حَدَّثَتْهَا أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏"‏ لَقَدْ هَمَمْتُ أَنْ أَنْهَى عَنِ الْغِيلَةِ حَتَّى ذَكَرْتُ أَنَّ فَارِسَ وَالرُّومَ يَصْنَعُهُ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ وَقَالَ إِسْحَاقُ ‏"‏ يَصْنَعُونَهُ فَلاَ يَضُرُّ أَوْلاَدَهُمْ ‏"‏ ‏.‏
