Anas narrated:

“I entered with the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, upon a slave boy of his who was a tailor, so he gave the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, a plate of  Thareed (a meal of meat and bread), then the boy went back to work. I saw the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, choosing to eat the pumpkin in it, so I would gather the pumpkin pieces and place it in front of him. From that time on I loved pumpkin.”

This narration shows the recommendation for a noble person to accept the invitation of and eat the food of one who belongs to a lower social status and eating with servants. It also shows the humbleness of the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, and his kind treatment of his Companions, and that he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, would come to their homes to check on them. One of the benefits of the narration is that one should accept an invitation even if it is humble.
