Narrated Ad-Daylami: (hadeeth 3710)
We came to the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam) and said to him: O Messenger of Allah, you know who we are, from where we are and to whom we have come. He said: To Allah and His Messenger. We said: Messenger of Allah, we have grapes; what should we do with them? He said: Make them raisins. We then asked: What should we do with raisins? Hereplied: Steep them in the morning and drink in the evening, and steep them in the evening and drink in the morning. Steep them in skin vessels and do not steep them in earthen jar, for it is delayed in pressing, it becomes vinegar.
Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu’minin
– حدثنا مسدد قال ثنا المعتمر قال سمعت شبيب بن عبد الملك يحدث عن مقاتل بن حيان قال حدثتني عمتي عمرة عن عائشة رضي الله عنها أنها كانت تنبذ لرسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم غدوة فإذا كان من العشي فتعشى شرب على عشائه فإن فضل شىء صببته أو فرغته ثم تنبذ به بالليل فإذا أصبح تغدى فشرب على غدائه وقالت يغسل السقاء غدوة وعشية فقال لها أبي مرتين في يوم؟ قالت نعم
Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu’minin (hadeeth 3712)
Amrah said on the authority of Aisha that she would steep dates for the Messenger of Allah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam) in the morning.
When the evening came, he took his dinner and drank it after his dinner. If anything remained, she poured it out. She then would steep for him at night. When the morning came, he took his morning meal and drank it after his morning meal. She said: The skin vessel was washed in the morning and in the evening. My father (Hayyan) said to her:
Twice a day? She said: Yes. (From Sunan Abu Dawood ~ Book of drinks)
