Abu Sa`id Maqburi reported: Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him)
said that he happened to pass by
some people who had a roast lamb before them. They invited him, but he declined, saying: "The Messenger of Allah
(PBUH) left the world without having eaten his fill with barley bread.''
1. This Hadith shows how much care the Companions of the Prophet (PBUH) exercised in following him. They
would even emulate him in matters in which it was not obligatory under the Shari`ah to follow him. It was in fact the
result of that extreme love that they had for the Prophet (PBUH). They were not like the present-day lovers of the
Prophet (PBUH) whose love does not go beyond lip-service. They were his true lovers and they followed him
2. One should refuse to participate in feasts where extravagance is displayed, as is in common practice today, so that
the evil tendency of extravagance and wastage is discouraged. One who avoids such parties, does not refuse
invitations but respects the principles and values of Shari`ah which is a highly meritorious act.

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Prophet (PBUH) neither ate on a dining cloth, nor ate soft
bread throughout his life.
One narration adds:
He (PBUH) never even saw a Samit lamb
Samit is an animal prepared for food by removing its hair by boiling water, and then roasted without being skinned.
This type of food is preferred by wealthy people. (Editor's Note)
It means that the Prophet (PBUH) has not adopted the ways of the rich but embraced a simple way of
life which is the mode of Fuqara' - poor people. Thus, he remained contented with simple food and had no relish for
extravagant feasts.

made out of fine flour throughout his life, since Allah commissioned him until his death.
He was asked,
