Qatadah transmitted the tradition mentioned above through a chain of narrators like that of Shu'bah. This version adds:

Then al-Hasan forgot this tradition, and he used to say: A free man is not to be killed for a slave.

حَدَّثَنَا الْحَسَنُ بْنُ عَلِيٍّ، حَدَّثَنَا سَعِيدُ بْنُ عَامِرٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عَرُوبَةَ، عَنْ قَتَادَةَ، بِإِسْنَادِ شُعْبَةَ مِثْلَهُ زَادَ ثُمَّ إِنَّ الْحَسَنَ نَسِيَ هَذَا الْحَدِيثَ فَكَانَ يَقُولُ ‏

"‏ لاَ يُقْتَلُ حُرٌّ بِعَبْدٍ ‏"

It was narrated from Hisham, from Qatadah, from Al-Hasan, who said:

"A free man should not be subjected to retaliation in return for a slave."

حَدَّثَنَا مُسْلِمُ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، حَدَّثَنَا هِشَامٌ، عَنْ قَتَادَةَ، عَنِ الْحَسَنِ، قَالَ لاَ يُقَادُ الْحُرُّ بِالْعَبْدِ ‏.‏
