    Eating at dining table is against sunnah (OP)


    Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu’anhu) reports that Rasulullah (salallahu’alayhi wasallam) never ate on a khiwan.

    (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 5386)

    The word khiwan is explained to mean a table with legs.

    Moulana Rashid Ahmad Gangohi (rahimahullah) explains the reason for which Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) abstained from eating on such a platform is so he bends over to reach the food.

    (Al-Kawkabud Durry, vol.3 pg.4)

    The proud ones generally don’t prefer to bend to reach the food.

    (Al-Muyassar of Turbishti, Hadith:3088 and Majma’u Biharil Anwar, vol.2 pg.126)

    In light of this explanation, eating on a slightly raised platform will not be in accordance to the original sunnah, as one will not be bending over completely to reach down for the food.

    I totally agree with your sentiment. The forum has some very silly threads these days!
