Narrated Jabir:

"The Messenger of Allah ﷺ prohibited the price of the dog and the cat."

[Abu 'Eisa said:] There is some confusion (Idtirab) in the chain for this Hadith. The price of a cat is not correct. This Hadith has been reported from Al-A'mash, from some of his companions, from Jabir, and they caused some confusion for Al-A'mash in this narration.

There are those among the people of knowledge who disliked the price of a cat, and some of them permitted it. This is the view of Ahmad and Ishaq. It has been reported from Ibn Al-Fudail, from Al-A'mash, from Abu Hazim, from Abu Hurairah from the Prophet ﷺ, through other than this route.
حَدَّثَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ حُجْرٍ، وَعَلِيُّ بْنُ خَشْرَمٍ، قَالاَ أَنْبَأَنَا عِيسَى بْنُ يُونُسَ، عَنِ الأَعْمَشِ، عَنْ أَبِي سُفْيَانَ، عَنْ جَابِرٍ، قَالَ نَهَى رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم عَنْ ثَمَنِ الْكَلْبِ وَالسِّنَّوْرِ ‏.‏

قَالَ أَبُو عِيسَى هَذَا حَدِيثٌ فِي إِسْنَادِهِ اضْطِرَابٌ وَلاَ يَصِحُّ فِي ثَمَنِ السِّنَّوْرِ ‏.‏ وَقَدْ رُوِيَ هَذَا الْحَدِيثُ عَنِ الأَعْمَشِ عَنْ بَعْضِ أَصْحَابِهِ عَنْ جَابِرٍ ‏.‏ وَاضْطَرَبُوا عَلَى الأَعْمَشِ فِي رِوَايَةِ هَذَا الْحَدِيثِ ‏.‏ وَقَدْ كَرِهَ قَوْمٌ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْعِلْمِ ثَمَنَ الْهِرِّ وَرَخَّصَ فِيهِ بَعْضُهُمْ وَهُوَ قَوْلُ أَحْمَدَ وَإِسْحَاقَ ‏.‏ وَرَوَى ابْنُ فُضَيْلٍ عَنِ الأَعْمَشِ عَنْ أَبِي حَازِمٍ عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم مِنْ غَيْرِ هَذَا الْوَجْهِ ‏.‏
