Hadrat Aishah (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anha) narrated that till the death of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) his family members did not get a full meal of even barley bread for two successive days. [Shama’il-e-Tirmizi]

It may be that they could have taken dates to their satisfaction but they did not get enough bread on two successive days. The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) has often taken wheaten bread: [Khasail-e-Nabawi]

SahI-ibn-Sa’d (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) on being asked by someone as to whether the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) has over taken bread prepared from superfine flour, replied that superfine flour was unknown during his lifetime. [Bukhari, Shamail e- Tirmizi]

Hadrat Anas (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) never took meals off a table. He never ate food from small plates, nor chapati (thin loaf) was baked for him. He used to take food served on a piece of leather (spread on the ground). [Shamail-e-Tirmizi]
