Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
Messenger of Allah (PBUH) never found fault with
food. If he had inclination to eating it, he would eat; and if he disliked it, he would leave it.
Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
This Hadith throws light on the Prophet's excellent manners which ought to be followed by all
Muslims. It is a deplorable state of affairs that when we find a dish a bit unsavoury, we lose our temper and create
quite a scene in the house. May we follow the excellent example of our Prophet (PBUH)!

Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) asked for sauce and was told that there
was nothing except vinegar. He asked for it and began to eat from it saying,
"How excellent is vinegar when eaten as
sauce! How excellent is vinegar when eaten as Udm!''
This Hadith speaks about the simplicity and humility of Messenger of Allah (PBUH) with regard to
food. As he abstained from a luxurious lifestyle, he hardly craved for delicious food. No mention of dainties, he
would readily eat whatever was available to him.
