Maliks Muwatta Book 20, Hadith Number 81.

Section : Game that can be Eaten by Someone who is in Ihram.

Yahya related to me from Malik, from Yahya ibn Said, that he heard Said ibn al-Musayyab relating from Abu Hurayra that he was once coming back from Bahrayn, and, when he reached ar-Rabadha, he found a caravan of people from Iraq in ihram, who asked him whether they could eat the meat of some game which they had found with the people of ar-Rabadha, and he told them they could eat it. He said, “Afterwards I had doubts about what I had told them to do, so when I got back to Madina I mentioned the matter to Umar ibn al-Khattab and he said, ‘What did you tell them to do?’ I said, ‘ I told them to eat it.’ Umar ibn al-Khattab said, threatening me, ‘If you had told them to do anything else I would have done something to you.'”
