حدثنا عبد الله بن جعفر ، ثنا يونس بن حبيب ، ثنا أبو داود ، ثنا أبو الأشهب ، عن الحسن ، عن أبي بن كعب رضي الله تعالى عنه ، قال : ألا إن طعام ابن آدم ضرب للدنيا مثلا ، وإن ملحه وقزحه

Ubay Ibn K’ab (رضي الله عنه) said,”The food of son of Adam gives us a good parable to the world(dunya), even if people add salt to it and garnish it (ie food comes out as waste and similar is dunya though it glitter in our eyes).
