Hadith 50, 51: Ibn Maja narrates from Ibn Abbas and Ibn Abi Dunia from Anas (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anh) that the Holy Prophet (Sail Allahu Alaihi wa Sallam) says: “Benefits and blessings reach the house in which people are given food sooner than the knife can reach the hump of the camel.” (Sacrificing the camel, firstly its hump is cut.)

Hadith 52: Asbahani narrates from Ummul Momineen Siddiqua (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha) that the Holy Prophet (Sall Allahu Alaihi wa Sallam) says: “Angels bless and greet you till the table is laid for one of you.”

Hadith 53: Abu Shaikh narrates from Abu Darda (Radi Allahu Ta’ ala Anh) that the Holy Prophet (Sail Allahu Alaihi wa Sallam) says: “The guest comes taking his livelihood and leaves taking the sin of the host and removing his sin.”

Hadith 54: Abu Shaikh in ‘Sawab’ narrates from Sayyidina Imam Hasan Mujtaba (Radi Ailahu Anh) and this is as clear as the next Hadith and this is dependent upon Imam Hasan i.e. this is a Mauqoof Hadith i.e. it is his saying (If the evidence for an Hadith goes back to a Companion of the Holy Prophet (Sail Allahu Alaihi wa Sallam), this is known as a Mauqoof Hadith). This Hadith says: “I prefer to feed one mouthful to my religious brother rather than give the poor one rupee and giving to my religious brother is dearer to me than giving a poor man one hundred rupees in charity.”

Hadith 55: This Hadith is also dependant upon Sayyidina Imam Hasan (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anh) i.e. this is a Mauqoof Hadith also and is narrated by Sayyidina Amirul Momineen Maula Ali Murtuza (Karram Allahu Ta’ala Wajuhuma): “To gather a few religious brothers of mine for a feast of three seers or six seers* of food is more loving to me than to free a slave just bought from the market.”

Hadith 56: Abu Dawood, Ibn Maja and Hibban narrate from Wahshi bin Harb (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anh): ‘The Companions of the Holy Prophet (Sail Aliahu Alaihi wa Sallam) told the Prophet (Sail Allahu Alaihi wa Sallam) that they ate but were not satisfied.” Upon this the Holy Prophet (Sall Allahu Alaihi wa Sallam) asked whether they ate separately or together? They replied, separately. Then the Holy Prophet (Sail Allahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said: “Eat together and invoke the Name of Allah, that will bring good fortune from Allah for you.”

Hadith 57: Ibn Maja and Askari in ‘Mawaiz’ narrate from Amirul Momineen Umar (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anh) that the Holy Prophet (Sall Allahu Alaihi wa Saliam) says: “Eat together and do not be separated because the Blessing of Allah is with a group.”

Hadith 58: Tabrani in ‘Kabeer’ and Baihaqi in ‘Shoab’ narrate from Salman (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anh) that the Holy Prophet says: “Blessing lies in three things: i.e. in the gathering of the Muslims, eating Sareed (a kind of food) and eating Sahri (Meals before dawn during the fasting month).”

Hadith 59: Bazzar narrates from Samra (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anh) that the Holy Prophet (Sall Allahu Alaihi wa Sallam) says: “The diet of one person is enough for two persons and the diet of two persons is enough for four persons and the Hand of Allah (Allah’s protection) is on the group.”

Hadith 60: Abu Yala, Tabrani and Abu Shaikh narrate from Jabir (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anh) that the Holy Prophet (Sall* A seer is a measure of grain Allahu Alaihi wa Sallam) says: “Undoubtedly food eaten together is dearer to Allah.”
