HADITH (Traditions of the Prophet Muhammad Peace be Upon Him)

Ibn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said, "Blessing descends upon food in its middle, so eat from the sides of the vessel and do not eat from its middle.'' [At-Tirmidhi and Abu Dawud]

Abdullah bin Busr (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) had a large bowl called Al-Gharra', which would be carried by four men. One day, when the Companions finished their Duha (forenoon optional) prayer, Al-Gharra' was brought full of sopped bread, meat and broth, and they sat down around it. When their number increased, the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) sat down on his knees and rested on the soles of his feet. A bedouin said to him: "What sort of sitting is that?'' Thereupon the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said, "Verily, Allah has made me a courteous servant not a fierce tyrant.'' Then he said, "Eat from the sides of the bowl and leave the central part of it so that your food will be blessed.'' [Abu Dawud]

Commentary: Here, too, we are told to eat collectively and from our side of the table. The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) calls it the blessed way. There is also a provision for sitting with bent knees (while resting on one's soles). Moreover, the excellence of the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) as well as his humility are brought to our knowledge.

The Hadith also tells us that if a few people or members of the same family recite the Name of Allah and take meal at the same table, a two-fold benefit will accrue to them. Their hunger will be sated with their subsistence being given the Divine blessing. And if they do otherwise, the result will be otherwise too.

My five children and I were playing hide-and-seek one evening. With the lights turned off in the house, the kids scattered to hide, and I was "it." After a few minutes, I was able to locate all of them. When it was my turn to hide, they searched high and low but couldn't find me. Finally one of my sons got a bright idea.

He went to the phone and dialed.

They found me immediately when my cell phone started ringing...
