Chapter 110

Merit of Sharing Food




Hadith 755


Abu Hurairah radiyallahu anhu reported: The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa said,

"The food of two persons suffices for three persons, and the food of three persons suffices for four persons.'' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Hadith 756


Jabir bin `Abdullah radiyallahu anhu reported: The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa said,

"The food of one person suffices for two, the food of two persons suffices for four persons, and the food of four persons suffices for eight persons.'' [Muslim].


Commentary: This Hadith indicates that if a few persons share the same dinner-table, a small quantity of food will be enough for many persons. Moreover, this increases mutual love and fellow-feeling. A detailed light has already been shed on this topic in Chapter No. 62. See Hadith No. 565.

Hadith 757


Anas radiyallahu anhu reported: The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa used to breathe three times in the course of a drink (he used to drink in three gulps). [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].


Commentary: Water should be drunk in three breaths, that is one should breathe three times outside the drinking vessel one is drinking from. This habit has a salutary impact on one's character and helps one avoid doing things in haste.

Hadith 758


Ibn `Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) reported: The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa said,

"Do not drink in one gulp like a camel, but in two or three (gulps). Mention the Name of Allah (i.e., say Bismillah) when you start drinking and praise Him (i.e., say Alhamdulillah) after you have finished (drinking).'' [At-Tirmidhi].


Commentary:
This Hadith, too, prohibits us from drinking water in a single breath. It is preferable to say Bismillah every time we drink, and Alhamdulillah every time we stop drinking.

Hadith 759


Abu Qatadah radiyallahu anhu reported: The Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa forbade breathing into the vessel while drinking. [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].


Commentary:
The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa prohibited us from breathing in the drinking vessel because the bad smell or spittle may flow into the drink. This is both loathsome as well as injurious to one's health.

Hadith 760


Anas radiyallahu anhu reported: Milk mixed with water was brought to The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa. On his right side was sitting a Bedouin and on his left was sitting Abu Bakr radiyallahu anhu him. He Sallalahu aleihi wa drank from it and handed the rest to the Bedouin saying,

"One who is on the right has preference, then again the one who is on the right.'' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Hadith 761


Sahl bin Sa`d radiyallahu anhu reported: A drink was brought to The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa and he drank (some) from it. On his right was a boy and on his left were some elderly people. He Sallalahu aleihi wa said to the boy,

"Would you permit me to give rest of this drink to these on my left?''


The boy said: "O The Messenger of Allah, I would certainly not give preference to anyone in anything that might come to me from you.'' So he Sallalahu aleihi wa handed
over the rest of the drink to him. [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].


Commentary: This Hadith has already been mentioned earlier. Sheikh Al-Albani says: Some wrongly think that (in order to distribute something) in accordance with the Sunnah, a beginning should be made from an elderly person of the audience. Similarly, the view of Imam An-Nawawi is also not sound that the distribution should begin from his own person and then give it out to the gathering in the right order. Whereas the fact is, as mentioned in the Hadith, the Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa had demanded the drink for himself and, therefore, drunk it first of all. And if the situation is otherwise, the beginning should be made from the right side according to the Sunnah. Neither should the distributor give priority to himself nor to any elderly person from amongst the gathering. Rather, he should begin from the right side and then keep distributing in the serial order. Sheikh Al-Albani, therefore, says that Imam An-Nawawi is wrong to think that the distributor should begin after himself from the right side.
