Sahl b. Sa’d Sa’idi reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) was given a drink, and he drank from that, and there was on his right side a boy and on his left some old men. He said to the boy: Do you permit me to give it to them (the old men), but that boy said: by God. I will not give preference at your hand over me in my share. He (the narrator) said that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) then gave it in his hand.
Chapter : It is desirable to circulate water or milk (in an assembly) from the right-hand side of the one who serves.
