No. 5055

Abu Huraira reported that Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) went out (of his house) one day or one night, and there he found Abu Bakr and 'Umar also. He said: What has brought you out of your houses at this hour? They said: Allaah's Messenger, it is hunger. Thereupon he said: By Him in Whose Hand is my life, what has brought you out has brought me out too; get up. They got up along with him. and (all of them) came to the house of an Ansari, but he was not at home. When his wife saw him she said: Most welcome, and Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said to her: Where is so and so? She said: He has gone to get some fresh water for us. When the Ansari came and he saw Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) and his two Companions, he said: Praise be to Allaah, no one has more honourable guests today than I (have). He then went out and brought them a bunch of ripe dates, dry dates and fresh dates, and said: Eat some of them. He then took hold of his long knife (for slaughtering a goat or a sheep). Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said to him: Beware of killing a milch animal. He slaughtered a sheep for them and after they had eaten of it and of the bunch and drank, and when they had taken their fill and had been fully satisfied with the drink, Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said to Abu Bakr and Umar: By Him in Whose Hand is my life, you will certainly be questioned about this bounty on the Day of judgment. Hunger brought you out of your house, then you did not return until this bounty came to you.

Jabir b. 'Abdullah reported: When the ditch was dug, I saw Allaah's Messenger (may peace he upon him) feeling very hungry. I came to my wife and said to her: Is there anything with you? I have seen Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) feeling extremely hungry. She brought out a bag of provisions which contained a sa', of barley. We had also with us a lamb. I slaughtered it. She ground the flour. She finished (this work) along with me. I cut it into pieces and put it in the earthen pot and then returned to Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) (for inviting him). She said: Do not humiliate me in the presence of Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) and those who are with him. When I came to him I whispered to him saying: Allaah's Messenger, we have slaughtered a lamb for you and she has ground a sa' of barley which we had with us. So you come along with a group of people with you. Thereupon Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said loudly: O people of the ditch, Jabir has arranged a feast for you, so (come along). Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Do not remove your earthen pot from the hearth and do not bake the bread from the kneaded flour until I come. So I came and Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) came and he was ahead of the people; and I came to my wife and she said (to me): You will be humbled. I said: I did what you had asked me to do. She (his wife) said: I brought out the kneaded flour and Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) put some saliva of his in that and blessed It. He then put saliva in the earthen pot and blessed it and then said. Call another baker who can bake with you. and bring out the soup from it, but do not remove it from the hearth, and the guests were one thousand. (Jabir said): I take an oath by Allaah that all of them ate (the food to their fill) until they left it and went away and our earthen pot was brimming over as before, and so was the case with our flour, or as Dahhak (another narrator) said: It (the flour) was in the same condition and loaves had been prepared from that.

Malik reported that Abu Talha said to Umm Sulaim: I felt some feebleness in the voice of Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) and perceived that it was due to hunger; so have you anything with you? She said: Yes. She brought out barley loaves, then took out a head-covering of hers, in a part of which she wrapped those loaves and then put them beneath my mantle and covered me with a part of it. She then sent me to Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam). I set forth and found Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) sitting in the mosque in the company of some persons. I stood near them, whereupon Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Has Abu Talha sent you? I said, Yes. He said: Is it for a feast? I said. Yes. Thereupon Allaah's messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said to'those who were with him to get up He went forth and so I did before them, until I came to Abu Talha and informed him. Abu Talba said: Umm Sulaim, here comes Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) along with people and we do not have enough (food) to feed them. She said: Allaah and His Messenger know best. Abu Talha went out (to receive him) Until he met Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) and Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) came forward along with him until they both (Allaah's Messenger, along with Abu Talha) came in. Then Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Umm Sulaim. bring forth that which you have with you. She brought the bread. Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) commanded that the bread be broken into small pieces, and when Umm Sulaim had squeezed a small waterskin and put seasoning on it, Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) recited something regarding it what Allaah wished him to say. He then said: Allow ten (guests to come in and have their meals). He permitted them; they ate until they had their fill. They then went out.

They said: (He has done that to relieve) his hunger. I went to Abu Talha, the husband of Umm Sulaim, the daughter of Milhan, and said to him: Father, I saw Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) having bandaged his belly. I asked some of his Companions (the reason of it) and they said that it was due to hunger. Abu Talha came to mv mother and said: Is there anything?
