لا نسلم ان كل جزء من اجزاء الميت نجس بل النجس منه ما كان فيه حياة زالت بالموت هذه الاشياء لا

حياة فيهاحتي لا يتالم بقطعها الحيوان.


و اخرج الدارقطني عن عبيد الله بن عبد الله بن عباسانما حرم رسول الله صلي الله عليه و سلممن الميتة لحمها فاما الجلد و الشعر و الصوف فلا باس به.


الا كل شيئ من الميتة حلال الا ما اكل منها.فاما الجلد و القرون و الشعر و الصوفوالسن و العظم فكله حلال.فتح القدير.85/1.حقانية.


فظهر بهذا ان الكلب طاهر العين بمعني طهارة عظمه و شعره و عصبه و ما لا يو كل منه.بحر الرائق.102/1.ايج ايم سعيد.


و يستفاد منه ان الشعر طاهر علي القول بنجاسة عينه لما ذكر في السراج الوهاج ان جلد الكلب نجس و شعره طاهر هو المختار.المرجع السابق
