HADITH (Traditions of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ )

Ibn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: I served the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) Zamzam water to drink and he drank it while he was standing. [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

An-Nazzal bin Sabrah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Ali bin Abu Talib (May Allah be pleased with him) arrived at Bab Ar-Rahbah (in Kufah) and drank water in a standing posture. Then he said: "I saw the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) doing what you have seen me doing.'' [Al-Bukhari]

Ibn Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: During the lifetime of the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) we would eat while walking and would drink while standing. [At-Tirmidhi]

Commentary:  The Companions would not habitually eat something while being on the move and drink water in a standing position. In fact, the Hadith simply tells us that these were some moments in their life when they did so.

January 21 1976 - Concorde takes off

From London’s Heathrow Airport and Orly Airport outside Paris, the first Concorde’s with commercial passengers simultaneously take flight on January 21, 1976. The London flight was headed to Bahrain in the Persian Gulf, and the Paris to Rio de Janeiro via Senegal in West Africa. At their cruising speeds, the innovative Concorde’s flew well over the sound barrier at 1,350 miles an hour, cutting air travel time by more than half.

The Concorde was not a great commercial success, however, and people complained bitterly about the noise pollution caused by its sonic booms and loud engines. Most airlines declined to purchase the aircraft, and just 16 Concorde’s were built for British Airways and Air France. Service was eventually limited between London and New York and Paris and New York, and luxury travellers appreciated the less than four-hour journey across the Atlantic.

On July 25, 2000, an Air France Concorde crashed 60 seconds after taking off from Paris en route to New York. All 109 people aboard and four on the ground were killed. The accident was caused by a burst tire that ruptured a fuel tank, creating a fire that led to engine failure. The fatal accident–the first in Concorde’s history–signalled the decline of the aircraft. On October 24, 2003, the Concorde took its last regular commercial flight.
