How the family of Muhammed(SAW) ate…

Ayesha (Radhiallahu Anhu) reported: The family of Muhammad (salla-Llaahu ‘alayhi wa-sallam) never ate to the fill the bread of barley for two successive days until he died (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

Another narration is: “Ayesha (Radhiallahu Anhu) said: Never did the family of Muhammad (salla-Llaahu ‘alayhi wa-sallam) eat to the fill, since their arrival to Al-Madinah, the bread of wheat for three successive nights until his death.

Commentary: This Hadith tells us about the extreme piety, contentment and simplicity of the prophet (salla-Llaahu ‘alayhi wa-sallam). This mode of his life continued to his last days when he had started storing provision for one year for the maintenance of his wives. But he would always distribute it among the needy, so much so that nothing was left with him. Thus, the statement of the wives of the Prophet (salla-Llaahu ‘alayhi wa-sallam) that the family of Muhammad (salla-Llaahu ‘alayhi wa-sallam) had never taken bellyful of food for two days is absolutely true. If they had it on one day they did not have it on the next day. This is how they lived their whole life in the companionship of the Prophet (salla-Llaahu ‘alayhi wa-sallam).
