Hadith on Famine: Patience of the Prophet, companions with famine

‘Utbah ibn Ghazwan reported: I found myself as the seventh among seven who had been with the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him. We had nothing to eat but the leaves of a wild tree until the corners of our mouths were wounded.
