Narated By ‘Aisha : The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) liked sweetmeats and honey. The narrator then mentioned a part of the tradition mentioned above. The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) felt it hard on hum to find smell from him. In this tradition Saudah said: But you ate gum? He said: No, I drank honey. Hafsah gave it to me to drink. I said: Its bees ate ‘urfut.
Abu Dawud said: Maghafir is a gum ; karasat means ate; ‘urfut is a bees’ plant.
