736 - عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال : ما عاب رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم طعاما قط : إن اشتهاه أكله وإن كرهه تركه . متفق عليه

Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
Commentary: This Hadith throws light on the Prophet's excellent manners which ought to be followed by all Muslims. It is a deplorable state of affairs that when we find a dish a bit unsavoury, we lose our temper and create quite a scene in the house. May we follow the excellent example of our Prophet (PBUH)!
737 - وعن جابر رضي الله عنه أن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم سأل أهله الأدم فقالوا : ما عندنا إلا خل فدعا به فجعل يأكل ويقول : [ نعم الأدم الخل نعم الأدم الخل ] رواه مسلم
737. Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) asked for sauce and was told that there was nothing except vinegar. He asked for it and began to eat from it saying, "How excellent is vinegar when eaten as sauce! How excellent is vinegar when eaten as Udm!)
Commentary: This Hadith speaks about the simplicity and humility of Messenger of Allah (PBUH) with regard to food. As he abstained from a luxurious lifestyle, he hardly craved for delicious food. No mention of dainties, he would readily eat whatever was available to him.
