Shama-il Tirmidhi Chapter 030, Hadith Number 001 (195).

Aisha Radiyallahu Anha says, The drink most liked by Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam was that which was sweet and cold.

Apparently cold and sweet water is mentioned here. In the narration mentioned by Abu Dawood and others it is clearly stated, and there also may be a probability that sharbat of honey or nabeedh of dates are meant, as has been mentioned in the chapter on the cup of Sayyidina Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam. Sayyidina Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam did not pay much attention to food. Whatever was available was eaten, but sweet and cold water was given importance. Sweet water was brought for Sayyidina Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam from a place called Suqya, which is a few kilometres from Madinah. Sayyidina Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam also added the following du'aa in the words of Dawood alaihis salaam, that O' Allah grant me such love for You, which is more beloved to me than my life, wealth, wife, children, and cold water.
