Hadith on Fitrah: The Prophet chooses natural milk, not wine

Abu Huraira reported: On the night of the Ascension, the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, was presented with two vessels, one full of wine and the other full of milk. The Prophet looked at them both, and he chose the vessel full of milk. The Angel Gabriel, upon him be peace, said, “All praise is due to Allah, who has guided you to that which is natural, for had you chosen the wine your nation would have been led astray.”
