Platter and Tureen
A sahfah is a platter where food is gathered and served. The book where the Quran is printed is called mushaf (a derivative of the same root) as it gathers what is written between the two covers. In the past, sahfah was made of wood then developed and started to be made of metal and porcelain. As for a qas’ah, it is a tureen with food around which a large group of people gather to eat. It is enough for ten men. The qas’ah is also a pot for kneading.
Jabir, may Allah be pleased with him, reported: “The Messenger of Allah commanded that we lick our fingers and food pieces remaining in the platter and said, “You do not know in which portion of the food blessing lies”.” (Sahih Muslim)
