Maliks Muwatta Book 20, Hadith Number 82.

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

Yahya related to me from Malik, from Ibn Shihab, that Salim ibn Abdullah heard Abu Hurayra relating to Abdullah ibn Umar how a group of three people in ihram had passed him at ar-Rabadha and had asked him for a fatwa about eating game which people who were not in ihram were eating, and he told them that they could eat it. He said, “Then I went to Umar ibn al-Khattab in Madina and asked him about it, and he said, ‘What did you say to them?’ and I said, ‘I told them that they could eat it.’ Umar said, ‘If you had told them anything else I would have done you an injury.'”
