Hadith for the day

It is, clearly, critical to distinguish between a gift and something given (i.e. a gift).? If it was a gift the Messenger (PBUH) would join in sharing the eating but if it were given he let others eat it.

Seems rational and there is a cunning get-out clause which we will look at tomorrow.

What if you give a Whale Meat Company Big Bacon Pack as a charitable gift?
