Good Deed :#346 Sit and eat

Abdullah bin Busr (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Prophet (ﷺ) had a large bowl called Al-Gharra’, which would be carried by four men. One day, when the Companions finished their Duha (forenoon optional) prayer, Al-Gharra’ was brought full of sopped bread, meat and broth, and they sat down around it. When their number increased, Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) sat down on his knees and rested on the soles of his feet. A bedouin said to him: “What sort of sitting is that?” Thereupon Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Verily, Allah has made me a courteous slave not a fierce tyrant.” Then he said, “Eat from the sides of the bowl and leave the central part of it so that your food will be blessed.”

[Abu Dawud].

746. Abu Juhaifah Wahb bin ‘Abdullah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “I do not eat reclining (against a pillow).”

nas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
I saw Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) eating some dates while sitting on his buttocks, with his legs raised.


It was also narrated that Anas ibn Maalik said: “The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) never ate at a khiwaan or a sikrujjah, and he never had any soft bread.” I said to Qutaadah: “What did he used to eat from?” He said, “A cloth (spread on the floor).”

(Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5099).

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Prophet (ﷺ) forbade us from drinking while standing. Qatadah reported: “We asked him: ‘What about eating?”‘ He said: “That is even worse, (or may be he said) more detestable.”

Another narration is: Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) reprimanded us for drinking while standing.
