و في الهندية 5 : 340


أَكْلُ الطِّينِ مَكْرُوهٌ ، هَكَذَا ذُكِرَ فِي فَتَاوَى أَبِي اللَّيْثِ - رَحِمَهُ اللَّهُ تَعَالَى - وَذَكَرَ شَمْسُ الْأَئِمَّةِ الْحَلْوَانِيُّ فِي شَرْحِ صَوْمِهِ إذَا كَانَ يَخَافُ عَلَى نَفْسِهِ أَنَّهُ لَوْ أَكَلَهُ أَوْرَثَهُ ذَلِكَ عِلَّةً أَوْ آفَةً لَا يُبَاحُ لَهُ التَّنَاوُلُ ، وَكَذَلِكَ هَذَا فِي كُلِّ شَيْءٍ سِوَى الطِّين

And Allah Knows Best
