What do I know about Ittibaa’-e-Sunnah?

Once, two dishes of curries were brought at mealtime to Hadhrat Moulana Madani (rahimahullah). Generally, the curry was presented in a big utensil and everyone would sit around and eat from it. On this occasion, because someone was sick, a separate utensil was sent for him. When Hafiz Husain Sahib saw this, he asked, “Now you have begun eating two different curries at one meal. Is it proven that Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) ate two different types of curries?”

Hadhrat Moulana Madani (rahimahullah) did not make mention of the hadeeth in Abu Dawood which speaks of Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) eating two curries in one sitting; rather he replied, “Where can I ever practise upon the sunnah of Rasulullah(sallallahu alaihi wasallam)? I am a slave of my stomach.” (Malfoozaat of Faqeeh-ul-Ummat Vol 2 Pg 373-427)
