CHAPTER ON THE DESCRIPTION OF THE THINGS THAT SAYYIDINA RASULULLAH SALLA LAHU ALAYHI WA’ALE HI WASALLAM
LIKED TO DRINK
 

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

The author has mentioned two ahaadith in this chapter.    


(195) Hadith Number 1

Sayyidina Aayeshah radiyallahu anha says, “The drink most liked by Rasulullah salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam was that which was sweet and cold.”  


Commentary

Apparently cold and sweet water is mentioned here. In the narration mentioned by Abu Daawud and others it is clearly stated, and there also may be a probability that sharbat of honey or nabeedh of dates are meant, as has been mentioned in the chapter on the cup of Sayyidina Rasulullah salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam. Sayyidina Rasulullah salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam did not pay much attention to food. Whatever was available was eaten, but sweet and cold water was given importance. Sweet water was brought for Sayyidina Rasulullah salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam from a place called Suqya, which is a few kilometres from Madinah. Sayyidina Rasulullah salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam also added the following du’aa in the words of Hasrat Dawood Alayhi salaam, that “O’ Allah grant me such love for You, which is more beloved to me than my life, wealth, wife, children, and cold water.” 


(196) Hadith Number 2

Hasrat Ibn Abbas radiyallahu anhu reports, “Khaalid ibn Waleed and I both accompanied Rasulullah salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam to the house of Maymunah. (Ummul Mu’mineen, Maymunah radiyallahu anha was the maternal aunt of both). She served milk in a vessel. Rasulullah salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam drank from it. I was on his right and Khaalid ibn Waleed on his left. Rasulullah salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam said the right of drinking is now yours (as you are on the right). If you so wish you could give your right to Khaalid. I replied that I would give no one preference from your left over. After that Rasulullah salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam said, ‘Whenever Allah feeds one something, this du’aa should be recited’: 

 Allahumma baarik lanaa fihi wa-at’imnaa khayram minhu  

(Translation: O’ Allah grant us barakah in it, and feed us something better than it.)  

Whenever Allah gives someone milk to drink one should read:  

Allahumma baarik lanaa fihi wa-zidnaa minhu  

(Translation: O’ Allah grant us barakah in it and increase it for us.) 

Sayyidinaa Ibn Abbas radiyallahu anhu says that after having something Rasulullah salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam made du’aa for something better than it. And after drinking milk he taught to make du’aa for the increase of it, becuase Rasulullah salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam said, “There is nothing that serves both as food and water excepting milk.”    


Commentary

Sayyidina Rasulullah salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam chose to give the milk first to Sayyidina Ibn Abbas radiyallahu anhu because he was sitting on the right, and Sayyidina Khaalid ibn Waleed radiyallahu anhu on the left. As is mentioned in many ahaadith that the cup etc. should be passed from right to left. Sayyidina Rasullullah salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam requested the giving of preference to Sayyidina Khaalid ibn Waleed radiyllahu anhu, as he was elder. It was also intended to educate Sayyidina Ibn Abbas radiyallahu anhu that, although it was his right, it is better to give an elder preference. However the love Sayyidina Ibn Abbas radiyallahu anhu had for Sayyidina Rasulullah salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam naturally made him not give up this right for the left over milk of Sayyidina Rasulullah salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam.

Studying Ash-Shaam-il  


The description of things that Sayyidina Rasulullah (salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam) liked to drink 

Sayyidina Rasulullah (salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam) liked to drink chilled and sweet water. This was ordered from outside Medina Munawwarah from approximately two days distance away. The water would sometimes be mixed with honey and sometimes mixed with water. If we are offered hot or cold water, we should always pick cold water as this is the blessed Sunnah of Sayyidina Rasulullah (salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam).

On the day of Judgement, the blessed Prophet (salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam) will offer water to the believers and their blessed household ‘Ahl-e-Bayt’ will be the helpers. The stars in the sky will bring the cups in which the blessed water will be placed.
 Sayyidina Rasulullah (salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam) has also confirmed that there is nothing better than milk. This is mentioned in the authentic hadith as ‘Al Fitrah’ given to Sayyidina Rasulullah (salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam) in the night of Miraaj. 


Adab of the Sunnah 

The way of Sayyidina Rasulullah (salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam) is superior to any other way and must be followed. The ways or traditions of this world must not be given preference to the Sunnah of Rasulullah (salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam). We must throw the duniya out of our hearts, and keep it only in our hand. An example of this is to always give preference to the right as Rasulullah (salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam) always serves by the right. This can be seen through the angel on the right shoulder who is superior and instructs the angel on the left. 

This adab- etiquette for the Sunnah must also be observed when learning hadith, which can be seen from Imam Maalik (Rh) who was bitten sixteen times by a scorpion but did not move because he was teaching hadith of Sayyidina Rasulullah (salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam). The companions of Sayyidina Rasulullah (salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam) showed this etiquette through their own example as narrations confirm that Hasrat Anas Ibn Maalik (Ra) was teaching in Medina Munawwarah and a parade of elephants came outside. All the students got up to have a look at the parade except Hasrat Yahya (Ra) who remained seated in order to observe the etiquette of being in a gathering of hadith.
