عن أَنَس بنِ مَالِكٍ -رضي الله عنه- «أنَّ جَدَّتَهُ مُلَيكَة دَعَت رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم- لِطَعَام صَنَعتُه، فَأَكَل مِنه، ثم قال: قُومُوا فَلِأُصَلِّي لَكُم؟ قال أنس: فَقُمتُ إِلَى حَصِيرٍ لَنَا قد اسوَدَّ من طُولِ مَا لُبِس، فَنَضَحتُه بماء، فقام عليه رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم- وَصَفَفتُ أنا واليَتِيمُ وَرَاءَهُ، والعَجُوزُ مِن وَرَائِنَا، فَصَلَّى لَنَا رَكعَتَين، ثُمَّ انصَرَف». ولمسلم «أن رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم- صلى به وبِأُمِّه فَأَقَامَنِي عن يَمِينِه، وأقام المَرأةَ خَلْفَنَا».
[صحيح.] - [الرواية الأولى: متفق عليها. والرواية الثانية: رواها مسلم.]

Anas ibn Mālik (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: My grandmother, Mulaykah, invited the Messenger of Allah (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) to come and eat some food she had prepared for him. He ate some of it and said: "Get up and I will lead you in prayer." So I got up and brought a reed mat of ours that had turned black from prolonged use, and sprinkled some water on it. The Messenger of Allah (may Allah's peace and blessing be upon him) stood up and the orphan and I stood in a row behind him, and the elderly woman stood behind us. He led us praying two Rak‘ahs, then he left. In a narration by Muslim: “The Messenger of Allah (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) led him and his mother in prayer; and he made me stand on his right side and the woman stand behind us."

Explanation

Mulaykah (may Allah be pleased with her) invited the Messenger of Allah (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) to come and eat some food that she had prepared. Indeed, Allah, the Exalted, had created him with a propensity for the highest character and morals, such as abundant humility. Despite his lofty rank and high status, he accepted invitations from the old and the young, men and women, and the rich and the poor, intending high objectives and lofty goals, such as: consoling the hearts of the miserable, humility towards the poor, teaching the unlearned, and other praiseworthy goals. He accepted the invitation of this hostess and ate some of her food. He took this opportunity to teach those weaker individuals who may not be able to jostle with the others in attending his blessed gatherings. He told them to stand up so he could lead them in the prayer and they could learn from him how to pray. Anas brought an old reed mat that had turned black from prolonged use and washed it with water. The Messenger of Allah (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) stood upon it and led them in prayer. He made Anas and an orphan that was with him stand in a row behind him, and the elderly lady – the hostess – stand in a row behind Anas and the orphan and pray with them. he led them in two Rak‘ahs and then left, after fulfilling his duties of Da‘wah and teaching. May Allah bless us with following his actions and morals!
