وعن عُرْوَةَ عَنْ عائشة رضي اللَّه عنها ، أَنَّهَا كَانَتْ تَقُولُ : وَاللَّه يا ابْنَ أُخْتِي إِنْ كُنَّا لَنَنْظُرُ إلى الهِلالِ ثمَّ الهِلالِ . ثُمَّ الهلالِ ثلاثةُ أَهِلَّةٍ في شَهْرَيْنِ . وَمَا أُوقِدَ في أَبْيَاتِ رسولِ اللَّه صَلّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وسَلَّم نارٌ . قُلْتُ : يَا خَالَةُ فَمَا كَانَ يُعِيشُكُمْ ؟ قالتْ : الأَسْوَدَانِ : التَّمْرُ وَالمَاءُ إِلاَّ أَنَّهُ قَدْ كَانَ لرسول اللَّه صَلّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وسَلَّم جِيرانٌ مِنَ الأَنْصَـارِ . وَكَانَتْ لَهُمْ مَنَايحُ وَكَانُوا يُرْسِلُونَ إلى رسول اللَّه صَلّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وسَلَّم مِنْ أَلبانها فَيَسْقِينَا . متفقٌ عليه .

Excellence of Simple Living and being Content with Little
`Urwah from `Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported that she used to say to Urwah (May Allah be pleased with him): "O son of my sister, by Allah, I used to see the new moon, then the new moon, then the new moon, i.e., three moons in two months, and a fire was not kindled in the house of Messenger of Allah (PBUH). "I (`Urwah) said, "O my aunt, what were your means of sustenance?" She said; "Dates and water. But it (so happened) that Messenger of Allah (PBUH) had some Ansar neighbours who had milch animals. They used to send Messenger of Allah (PBUH) some milk of their (animals) and he gave that to us to drink."[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].


Commentary:
`Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) did not say this by way of complaint but as warning and exhortation to the Muslims, especially women, so that they would also live a simple life. The latter should prepare their family budget keeping in view the lawful earnings of their husbands and do not place so much burden on them that they are compelled to look for unfair means of earning.
