Hadith Explanation

Seven Dates Sufficed

It was narrated from Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhu) that they suffered from hunger and they were seven. He said: “Then the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) gave me seven dates, one date for each man.” [Sunan Ibn Majah]

The suffering and the patience of the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) and his Companions (radi Allahu anhum) in the face of innumerable hardships are a shining example for all Muslims for all times. The steadfastness of the Companions of the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) was matchless, as they contented themselves with only one date and no one tried to get more.

This hadith also teaches us that justice should be observed while distributing small things, just as it should be implemented while distributing large quantities of valuables.
