Criticizing Food

قال الإمامُ مسلمٌ في صحيحِهِ، في كتابِ الأَشْرِبَةِ، بابٌ لا يَعِيبُ الطَّعامَ:

Imām Muslim collected the following ḥadīth in his Ṣaḥīḥ, in the Book of Drinks, under the chapter entitled: (The Believer) Does Not Criticize Food:


2064 _  حدَّثنا يحيى بنُ يحيى، وزُهَيْرُ بنُ حَرْبٍ، وإسحاقُ بنُ إبراهيمَ _ قال زُهَيْرٌ: حدَّثنا، وقال الآخرانِ: _ أخبرنا جَرِيرٌ، عَنِ الأعمشِ، عن أبي حازمٍ، عن أبي هُرَيْرَةَ، قال: ما عاب رسولُ اللهِ _ صلَّى اللهُ عليه وسلَّم _ طعامًا قطُّ، كان إذا اشتهى شيئًا أكله، وإنْ كَرِهَهُ تركه


(#2064) Abū Hurayrah said, "The Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) never criticized food ever.  If he wanted something, he would eat it.  If he disliked it, he would leave it."


وفي رِوَايَةٍ: ما رأيتُ رسولَ الله _ صلَّى اللهُ عليه وسلَّم _ عاب طعامًا قَطُّ، كان إذا اشتهاه أَكَلَهُ، وإنْ لَمْ يَشْتَهِهِ سَكَتَ


In another narration he said, "I never saw the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) criticize food ever.  If he wanted it, he would eat it.  If he did not want it, he would remain silent."
