Suckling the elderly?! Adult breastfeeding?

Is there breastfeeding the elder in Islam?

This is a special case to Salim and his matches

But non-Muslims seize it to insult Aisha and Salim Mawla Abi Hudaifa

This is the consensus of all scholars

It is a special case to those who want to adopt

Ibn Taymiya says if an adopted girl or boy is grown and his “father Adopter likes him her to stay at home” it is Khalwa 

(privacy) thus the breastfeeding is permissible, yet the consensus is that it’s special and special to him (Salim) only

The matter here is exactly like slavery

It is abrogated

Scholars say this happened at the time when adoption was legal

But then adoption is abrogated. Bukhari narrates this Hadith in his book, but not the complete version. He has narrated it from the beginning of the story to the revelation of the verse: 33:5 and dropped the remaining.

Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen was asked about this matter, and he replied:

Breastfeeding a grown-up has no effect, because the breastfeeding which has an effect (of creating the relationship of 

mahram) is that which consists of five feedings or more within the first two years, before weaning. On this basis, if it 

happened that someone breastfed from his wife or drank her milk, he does not become her son. Fataawa Islamiyah, 3/338.

Reported by ‘Abd al-Razzaaq in al-Musannaf, 7/463, no. 13895).

In al-Muwatta’ (2/603), Maalik reported that Ibn ‘Umar said: “There is no breastfeeding except for the one who is breastfed 

In infancy, there is no breastfeeding for one who is grown up.” Its isnaad is saheeh.

From this is it clear that drinking one’s wife’s milk has no effect and does not create the relationship of mahram.

 Ibn Qudaamah said in al-Mughni (9/201):

 “One of the conditions of breastfeeding creating the relationship of mahram is that it should be within the first two years.

This is the opinion of most of the scholars. Something like this was narrated from ‘Umar, ‘Ali, Ibn ‘Umar, Ibn Mas’ood, Ibn ‘Abbaas, Abu Hurayrah and the wives of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), apart from ‘Aa’ishah. It was also the opinion of al-Shi’bi, Ibn Shubrumah, al-Oozaa’i, al-Shaafa’i, Ishaaq, Abu Yoosuf, Muhammad, and Abu Thawr, and was narrated in one report from Maalik.

Many Sunni scholars say that this Hadith is faked. In the book: al-Sunan, Beihaqi narrates other Prophet’s wife’s disagreement with this fatwa of Aisha. He says that none of the other wives let a man to become mahram with them in this way.

But in the footnotes of some versions of Bukhari, some scholars pointed to the remaining part of the Hadith and said that most Muslims reject “Ridha’u Kabeer” and don’t recognize it as a way to become mahram with a non-mahram guy.

That there should have been five or more breastfeeding, because of the hadeeth of ‘A’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her), who said: Among the things that were revealed of the Quran was that ten definite breastfeeding make a person a mahram, then that was abrogated and replaced with five definite breastfeeding

Narrated by Muslim, 1452

In al-Muwatta’ (2/603), Maalik reported that Ibn ‘Umar said: “There is no breastfeeding except for the one who is breastfed in infancy; there is no breastfeeding for one who is grown up.” Its isnaad is saheeh

Ibn Qudaamah said:

“One of the conditions of breastfeeding creating the relationship of mahram is that it should be within the first two years.”

Now as for the hadeeth of Aisha

In her Hadith, Aisha (ra) narrates that a couple, Abu-Huzayfeh and Sahlah, had an adopted son called “Salem”. When the Quranic verse: “Name them after their fathers” (33:5) was revealed (which meant your adopted sons are not you son’s), Abu-Hudayfah told Salem that you’re not our son anymore.

However, because Salem lived the family so much, he came by to visit them a lot, even when Salah was alone.

“Whenever Abu-Huzayfah heard about such visits, he became so upset. Sahlah came to the Prophet and informed him of the problem. The Holy Prophet told her, “breastfeed him by your milk”!

“But he is an adult”, Sahlah said

“I know that he is adult, but answered he is the same as I told.”, the Prophet replied.”

Many Sunni scholars say that this Hadith is faked. In the book: al-Sunan, Beihaqi narrates other Prophet’s wife’s disagreement with this fatwa of Aisha. He says that none of the other wives let a man to become mahram with them in this way.

Sheikh Mustafa Al Adawi said on Al Rahma Channel

“Now there are also some who reject this Hadeeth saying that Bukhari only documented what Aisha thought to be a hadeeth but it’s her effort only”

Bukhari narrates this Hadith in his book, but not the complete version. He has narrated it from the beginning of the story to the revelation of the verse: 33:5 and dropped the remaining.

But in the footnotes of some versions of Bukhari, some scholars pointed to the remaining part of the Hadith and said that most Muslims reject “Ridha’u Kabeer” and don’t recognize it as a way to become mahram with a non-mahram guy.

However, because this Hadith is narrated in their most authentic books, they have tried to justify it! Some of them say that this Hadith is abrogated, while others say that this Hadith is confined to the case of Salim mawla Abu-Huzayfah.

The author of the book Al-Fiqh ala Al-Mazahib Al-Arba’a (Fiqh according to the four school) criticizes this Hadith and says that breastfeeding requires appearing the breasts, touching, and sucking them!

How is it possible for a man who is not mahram yet to do that?

Albani says:

 I can say that nothing has been transmitted to us that instructs us how the wife of Abu Hudhaifah breastfed his Mawla Salim. The method has not been transmitted

Adult breastfeeding in Islam ???

Adult Breastfeeding in the Bible?
