Genuine brotherhood in Islaam

Qataadah said:

We visited al-Hasan al-Basree, and [found him] asleep.

By his head was a basket, and we foraged inside and found bread and fruit, so we began to eat.

He then awoke and saw us [eating], and that made him happy; so he smiled and recited;

[There is no blame upon you whether you eat together or separately…], soorah an-Noor, aayah 61

…[and he then said to us] there is no blame upon you.
