CHAPTER ON THE CUP OF SAYYIDINA RASULULLAH SALLA LAHU ALAYHI WA’ALE HI WASALLAM

Hazrat Sheikh-ul Hadeeth Maulana Muhammad Zakariyya Kandhelwi (R.A.) explains; 

By cup it is meant that from which water is drunk, as is stated in the narrations.  


(186) Hadith Number 1  

Hasrat Thaabit radiyallahu anhu relates that Hasrat Anas radiyallahu anhu showed us a large wooden cup, which was lined with metal, and said, “O’ Thaabit, this is the cup of Rasulullah salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam.”

Commentary

It is said that this cup was sold from the estate of Sayyidina Nadr ibn Anas radiyallahu anhu for eight lakh Dirhams and Imaam Bukhaari drank water from it in Basrah. Some say that, that was another cup. 


(187) Hadith Number 2

Hasrat
Anas radiyallahu anhu says, “I gave Rasulullah salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam to drink from this cup all those things which are drunk; Nabeedh, milk, etc.”   

Commentary

Nabeedh is a drink made by soaking dates, raisins, etc. in water until these things (become soft and) give off its effect. It is a tonic and gives strength. Dates, etc. were soaked for Sayyidina Rasulullah salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam at night and he drank it in the morning. It was also sometimes used the next day, provided it did not ferment and become intoxicating.
