    • أما العليق فمعروف وأما الورد الجبلي وورد الكلب وهو المعروف عند أهل الطب بالنسرين قال أبو حنيفة الورد الجبلي يشبه الورد ويشبه ذلك بعض سنة العليق وثمره شبيه العنب الدليك وهو أحمر يشبه البسر إلا أن طرفه محدود وفي داخله شبه الصوف ونواره نوار الورد أبيض يشوبه حمرة
      In what concerns the bramble, it is well known, and in what concerns the mountain-rose and the dog-rose, it is well-known with the physicians as nisrīn; Abū Ḥanīfa said the mountain-rose resembles the rose and this resembles a bit the image of the bramble, and the fruit is similar to the dust-vine, it is red and resembles the unripe date, except that its tip is pointed, and in its inner there is a kind of wool, and its blossom is a white rose blossom with an admixture of red.
