Ibn Seereen (a scholar) said

“In the evening, the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, would divide some poor people between some of his Companions, so it would be that a man would go with one man, another with two men, another with three, and so forth, up until ten men.”

Al-Hasan (a scholar) said

“And the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, would take any of them that remained into his home and would feed them whatever he had.”

Ya`eesh ibn Tikhfah Al-Ghifaari (a Companion) said: “My father was one of the people of As-Suffah, and the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, ordered that they be cared for, so a man would take a man or two men, until I remained, along with four others.

The Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: ‘Let us go.’ So we went with him to the house of `Aa’ishah, and he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: ‘O `Aa’ishah, feed us.’`Aa’ishah brought some Hasheeshah (a type of food that is made from slightly ground wheat that is then cooked and then meat or dates are added to it) and we ate from it. Then she brought some Haysah (a meal made from dates, fine flour, cheese and fat) that was like a bird (not plentiful), and we ate.

Then he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: ‘O `Aa’ishah, give us something to drink.’ She brought a large cup and we drank from it, then she brought a small cup that had some milk in it, and we drank from that.

Then Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: ‘If you wish to stay, you can, and if you wish, you can go back to the mosque.’ So we said: ‘No, but we will go back to the mosque.’
