One day a poor man brought a bunch of grapes to the holy prophet Muhammad peace be upon him as a gift.
The holy prophet ate one, two, three and then the whole bunch of grapes by himself. He did not offer grapes to anyone else present. The poor man who brought those grapes was very pleased and left. One of the companions asked, "O prophet of Allah! Why did you eat all the grapes by yourself and not offer any to us?
The Prophet smiled and said, "I ate all the grapes by myself because the grapes were very sour. If I had offered them to you, you might have made strange faces and that would have hurt the feelings of the poor one. Not wanting to hurt him I thought that it was better that I eat all of them cheerfully and please him.”
