'Abdullah bin Busr (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Prophet ﷺ had a large bowl called Al-Gharra', which would be carried by four men. One day, when the Companions finished their Duha (forenoon optional) prayer, Al-Gharra' was brought full of sopped bread, meat and broth, and they sat down around it. When their number increased, Messenger of Allah ﷺ sat down on his knees and rested on the soles of his feet. A bedouin said to him: "What sort of sitting is that?" Thereupon Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, "Verily, Allah has made me a courteous slave not a fierce tyrant." Then he said, "Eat from the sides of the bowl and leave the central part of it so that your food will be blessed."

[Abu Dawud].

وعن عبد الله بن بشر رضى الله عنه قال: كان للنبي ﷺ قصعة يقال لها: الغراء، يحملها أربعة رجال، فلما أضحوا وسجدوا الضحى أتى بتلك القصعة، يعنى وقد ثرد فيها، فالتقوا عليه ، فلما كثروا جثا رسول الله ﷺ.فقال أعرابي : ما هذه الجلسة؟ قال رسول الله ﷺ : إن الله جعلني عبداً كريماً، ولم يجعلني جباراً عنيداً، ثم قال رسول الله ﷺ :"كلوا من حواليها، ودعوا ذروتها يبارك فيها" .
