Muhammad was a very superstitious person, prone to hallucinations and fearful from the evil eye; once after hearing aJewess speak of the 'trial of the grave', he became obsessed and extremely fearful of this idea for the rest of his life.
Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 1212Narrated byAisha
The Prophet (peace be upon him) entered my house when a Jewess was with me and she was saying: Do you know that you would be put to trial in the grave? The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) trembled (on hearing this) and said: It is the Jews only who would be put to trial. Aisha said: We passed some nights and then the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:
Do you know that it has been revealed to me:"You would be put to trial in the grave"?

Anas went to the Prophet with barley bread having some dissolved fat on it. The Prophet had mortgaged his armor to a Jew in Medina and took from him some barley for his family.
