Performance and Potential

Two sons work for their father on the family's farm. The younger brother had for some years been given more responsibility and reward, and one day the older brother asks his father to explain why.

The father says, "First, go to the Kelly's farm and see if they have any geese for sale - we need to add to our stock."

The brother soon returns with the answer, "Yes they have five geese they can sell to us."

That father then says, "Good, please ask them the price." read more

Abdullah bin Haarith Radiyallahu'Anhu says.. "We ate roasted meat with Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam in the Masjid". [TIRMIZI]

Commentary: From this we find that it is perrnissible to eat and drink in the Masjid, on condition that the Masjid does not become untidy, otherwise it is Makruh to do so. It is possible that this was at the time of i'tikaaf (in Ramadaan). It was the practice of Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam to observe i'tikaaf every year, and at that time it is obvious that one eats in the Masjid.
