Suckling of the Young

Yahya related to me from Malik from Abdullah ibn Abi Bakrfrom Amra bint Abd ar-Rahman that A'isha, umm al-muminininformed her that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah blesshim and grant him peace, was with her and she heard thevoice of a man asking permission to enter the room ofHafsa. A'isha said that she had said, "Messenger ofAllah! There is a man asking permission to enter yourhouse!" The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him andgrant him peace, said, "I think it is so-and-so"(referring to a paternal uncle of Hafsa by suckling).A'isha said, "Messenger of Allah! If so-and-so were alive(referring to her paternal uncle by suckling) could heenter where I am?" The Messenger of Allah, may Allahbless him and grant him peace, said, "Yes. Suckling makesharam as birth makes haram."
