Chapter No. 30, Suckling
Hadith No: 2
Narrated/Authority of Aisha
Yahya related to me from Malik from Hisham ibn Urwa from his father that Aisha, umm al-muminin said, "My paternal uncle by suckling came to me and I refused to give him permission to enter until I had asked the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, about it. The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, came and I asked him about it. He said, 'He is your paternal uncle, so give him permission.' So I said, 'Messenger of Allah! The woman nursed me not the man.' He said, 'He is your paternal uncle, so let him enter.' " Aisha said, "That was after the veil had been imposed on us." Aisha added, "What is haram by birth is made haram by suckling."
