Hadith on Feasts: Worst feasts exclude the poor, refuse invitations

Abu Huraira reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The most evil food is the food of a wedding banquet, in which those who want to come are left out and those who are invited refuse. Whoever does not answer an invitation has disobeyed Allah and his messenger.”

Abu Huraira said, “The worst food is the food of a wedding banquet, in which the rich are invited and the poor are left out.”

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ شَرُّ الطَّعَامِ طَعَامُ الْوَلِيمَةِ يُمْنَعُهَا مَنْ يَأْتِيهَا وَيُدْعَى إِلَيْهَا مَنْ يَأْبَاهَا وَمَنْ لَمْ يُجِبْ الدَّعْوَةَ فَقَدْ عَصَى اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ أَنَّهُ قَالَ بِئْسَ الطَّعَامُ طَعَامُ الْوَلِيمَةِ يُدْعَى إِلَيْهِ الْأَغْنِيَاءُ وَيُتْرَكُ الْمَسَاكِينُ

1432 صحيح مسلم كِتَاب النِّكَاحِ بئس الطعام طعام الوليمة يدعى إليه الأغنياء ويترك المساكين
