Abu Mas`ud Al-Badri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: A man prepared some food especially for the
Prophet (PBUH) and invited him along with four others. But a man accompanied him. Having arrived at the door,
Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said to the host,
"This person has followed us. You may allow him, if you like, and if
you like he will return.
'' He said: "O Messenger of Allah, I allow him, too.''
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
It will be considered an expression of bad manners if somebody participates in a feast as an
uninvited, parasitic guest. Yet, he stands a chance in case he is allowed by the host. In this Hadith, there is a case
when Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said to the host that it was up to him to let the uninvited person to stay for food or
go. However, the invitees may take along with them two or three uninvited guests if they believe that the host will
not take it ill.
