As-Sa’di reported: I asked Ahmad ibn Hanbal about this narration and he said, “The date leaves are dates, and the year was the year of famine.” I said, “Do you say this?” Ahmad said, “Which part from Umar?” I said, “That the hand of the thief is not cut during a famine?” Ahmad said, “No, it is not cut when there is a need for that and the people are in a severe famine.”

عَنْ يَحْيَى بْنِ أَبِي كَثِيرٍ قَالَ قَالَ عُمَرُ لا يُقْطَعُ فِي عِذْقٍ وَلا عَامِ السَّنَةِ

18371 مصنف عبد الرزاق كتاب اللقطة باب القطع في عام سنة

قال السعدي سألت أحمد بن حنبل عن هذا الحديث فقال العذق النخلة وعام سنة المجاعة فقلت لأحمد تقول به فقال إي لعمري قلت إن سرق في مجاعة لا تقطعه فقال لا إذا حملته الحاجة على ذلك والناس في مجاعة وشدة
