Abdullah bin Amr (ra) said, ’A man asked the Prophet, “What Islamic traits are the best?” The Prophet said, ”Feed the people, and greet those whom you know and those whom you do not know”’. [Bukhari]

The Prophet (saw) said, “O Abu Dharr, when you cook a stew, put more water in the broth and take care of your neighbours“’. [Muslim]

The below quote has been taken from a longer Hadith Qudsi:

The Messenger of Allah (saw) said, ’Allah, Mighty and Sublime be He, will say on the Day of Resurrection […] “O son of Adam, I asked you for food and you did not feed Me“. He will say, “O Lord, how can I feed You when You are the Lord of the worlds?” He (Allah) will say, “Did you not know that My servant so-and-so asked you for food and you did not feed him? Did you not know that had you fed him you surely would have found that (the reward for doing so) with Me?“′ [Muslim]
