Hadith Explanation

How Many Beds

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) mentioned bedding and said: “Bedding for the man, bedding for the wife, bedding for the guest, and the fourth is for the Shaitaan.” [Sunan Abu Dawud]

Every house should have beds according to the number of people living in the house, and extra beds according to the number of guests that usually visit. Beyond that, is extravagance.

Although only bedding is mentioned in this hadith, we can extrapolate this to the amount of cutlery and crockery one should keep, the number of rooms one should have, the amount of linen we should keep, and so on and so forth. It is something to think about.
