What time did the Prophet have breakfast?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

After performing duha prayer, the Prophet (pbuh) would return home if there was no plan to go somewhere and would ask if there was anything to eat at home. If there was something to eat, he would have breakfast; if there was nothing to eat, he would say, “Then, I will fast today.” (Muslim, Siyam, 169). Thus, he would fast that day.

According to what is understood from narrations, unlike today, eating was not in the center of life in the life of the Prophet (pbuh); daily life was not arranged based on meals; they did not spend much time eating and they did not regard it as a problem when there was nothing to eat; they did not have square meals; they did not talk about types of meal all the time in conversations and they did not travel many kilometers to eat some nice food.
