The necessity of adhering to the Prophet’s way could not be more evident  than in Hajj. He, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam, ordered us to follow  his example in performing Hajj saying:

“Take your Hajj rituals from me. Perhaps I will not perform Hajj again

Following the Prophet’s example must not be limited to imitating aspects

of his personality. It must include aspects of his practical life.

He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, was the most perfect of people:  With regard to eating and drinking:

He, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam, never rejected good food, and he never  looked for faults in the food presented to him. If he liked the food he ate from it, otherwise he, sallallaahu  alayhi wa sallam, would leave it.2 Months would pass and fire would not be seen lit in his house (i.e. no food was cooked).3 He, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam, ate very little, and if food was not available he would have patience. In fact, he used to tie a rock to his stomach to assuage hunger pangs.

He, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam, said: Bismillaahbefore he began eating  (which eans,  in the name of Allah), and would say afterwards:

“O Allah! You have given us food, and drink. You have sufficed and provided. You have guided and gave life. So may praise be unto You for what you have given

Whenever he ate at someone’s house, he, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam, would pray for them before departing

He, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam, was not too proud to eat with those who were younger,  older, free, slaves, Bedouins or residents of Madeena.
