Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) never ate to his fill twice in one day

Question

Is this Hadith authentic?

Masruq (rahimahullah) said:

I entered upon ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) and she invited me to eat. She said: ‘Whenever I eat my fill of food I want to cry and begin crying.’ He said: ‘Why?’ She said: ‘I remember the circumstances under which the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) parted from the world. By Allah! He would not eat his fill of bread and meat twice in a day.'”

 

Answer

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration and has declared it sound (hasan).

The narration is as follows:

Masruq (rahimahullah) said: “I entered upon ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) and she invited me to eat. She said: ‘Whenever I eat my fill of food I want to cry and I begin to cry.’ Masruq asked, ‘Why?’ Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) replied, said: ‘I remember the circumstances under which Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) departed from this world. By Allah! He would not eat his fill of bread and meat twice in a day.”

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2356. Also see: Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2974)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
