Yahya related to me from Malik from Ibn Shihab fromUbaydullah ibn Abdullah ibn Utba ibn Masud that Abdullahibn Abbas said, "The Messenger of Allah, may Allah blesshim and grant him peace, passed by a dead sheep which hadbeen given to a mawla of his wife, Maimuna. He said, 'Aren't you going to use its skin?' They said, 'Messengerof Allah, but it is carrion. 'The Messenger of Allah, mayAllah bless him and grant him peace, said, 'Only eatingit is haram.' "
