باب ماجاء في عيش رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم

The Standard of Living of Rasoolullah
Muhammad ibn Sireen says:
We were with Abu Hurayrah (ra) and he had on two garments dyed dark red made from linen so he blew his nose in one of them. Then Abu Hurairah said: Wow, look at Abu Hurairah, he blows his nose in linen. I can still see myself falling down unconscious between the pulpit of the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) and the apartment of Aisha (ra) until someone would come along and place their foot on my neck assuming that I had gone insane But I was not insane; it was nothing but hunger.
حَدَّثَنَا قُتَيْبَةُ بْنُ سَعِيدٍ، حَدَّثَنَا حماد بن زيد ‏,‏ عن أيوب ‏,‏ عن محمد بن سيرين ‏,‏ قال‏:‏ كُنَّا عِنْدَ أَبِى هُرَيْرَةَ رضي الله عنه وَعَلَيْهِ ثَوْبَانِ مُمَشَّقَانِ مِنْ كَتَّان فَتَمَخَّطَ في أحدهما‏.‏ فَقَالَ أَبُو هُرَيْرَةَ‏:‏ بَخْ بَخْ يَتَمَخَّطُ أَبُو هُرَيْرَةَ فِى الْكَتَّانِ‏.‏ لَقَدْ رَأَيْتُنِي وَإِنِّى لأَخِرُّ فِيمَا بَيْنَ مِنْبَرِ رَسُولِ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم وحُجْرَةِ عَائِشَةَ رضي الله عنها مَغْشِيًّا عَلَيَّّ، فَيَجِىءُ الْجَانِى فَيَضَعُ رِجْلَهُ عَلَى عُنُقِى، يُرَى أَنّ بِي جْنُونٌا، وَمَا بِي جُنُونٍ، ومَا هو إِلاَّ الْجُوعُ‏.‏

Malik bin Dinar relates:
The Prophet (S) never ever filled his stomach with bread, nor with meat except in the situation of dafaf. Malik bin Dinar asked a Bedouin man: What is dafaf? He responded: That he would eat with the people.
حَدَّثَنَا قُتَيْبَةُ ‏,‏ حَدَّثَنَا جعفر بن سليمان الضبعي ‏,‏ عن مالك بن دينار قال‏:‏ مَا شَبِعَ رَسُولِ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم مِنْ خُبْزٍ قَط ‏,‏ وَلَحم إِلاَّ عَلى ضفَفَ‏.‏
