باب جَوَازِ أَكْلِ الْمَرَقِ وَاسْتِحْبَابِ أَكْلِ الْيَقْطِينِ وَإِيثَارِ أَهْلِ الْمَائِدَةِ بَعْضِهِمْ بَعْضًا وَإِنْ كَانُوا ضِيفَانًا إِذَا لَمْ يَكْرَهْ ذَلِكَ صَاحِبُ الطَّعَامِ

Anas b. Malik reported:

A tailor invited Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) to a meal which he had prepared. Anas b. Malik said: I went along with Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) to that feast. He presented to Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) barley bread and soup containing pumpkin, and sliced pieces of meat. Anas said: I saw Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) going after the pumpkin round the dish, so I have always liked the pumpkin since that day.
حَدَّثَنَا قُتَيْبَةُ بْنُ سَعِيدٍ، عَنْ مَالِكِ بْنِ أَنَسٍ، فِيمَا قُرِئَ عَلَيْهِ عَنْ إِسْحَاقَ بْنِ عَبْدِ، اللَّهِ بْنِ أَبِي طَلْحَةَ أَنَّهُ سَمِعَ أَنَسَ بْنَ مَالِكٍ، يَقُولُ إِنَّ خَيَّاطًا دَعَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم لِطَعَامٍ صَنَعَهُ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَنَسُ بْنُ مَالِكٍ فَذَهَبْتُ مَعَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم إِلَى ذَلِكَ الطَّعَامِ فَقَرَّبَ إِلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم خُبْزًا مِنْ شَعِيرٍ وَمَرَقًا فِيهِ دُبَّاءٌ وَقَدِيدٌ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَنَسٌ فَرَأَيْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَتَتَبَّعُ الدُّبَّاءَ مِنْ حَوَالَىِ الصَّحْفَةِ ‏.‏ قَالَ فَلَمْ أَزَلْ أُحِبُّ الدُّبَّاءَ مُنْذُ يَوْمَئِذٍ ‏.‏
