How close to the mimbar should one sit

Q: In our masjid I get people to sit close to the mimbar for Islamic talks. Can you please give me a Hadith on how close the companions would sit with each other that a cloth would cover them.


A: We have not come across such a hadeeth.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
