Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem. In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. "When any one of you eats, let him eat with his right hand, and if he drinks, let him drink with his right hand, for the Shaytaan eats with his left hand." (Hadith - Muslim) The teaching of the Prophet: "Mention the name of Allah, eat with your right hand, and eat from what is directly in front of you." (Hadith - Bukhari and Muslim) The Prophet commanded people to lick their fingers and clean their plates, as Jaabir reported that he said: "You do not know where in the food is the blessing." (Hadith - Muslim) Anas said: "When the Messenger of Allah ate, he would lick his three fingers. He said:'If any of you drops a mouthful, let him pick it up, remove the dirt, and eat it, and not leave it for the Shaytaan.' He commanded us to clean our plates and said: 'You do not know in which part of your food is the blessing.'" (Hadith - Muslim) Hadith narrated by Aa'ishah: "The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w) said: 'Whenever any of you eats, let him mention the name of Allah ta'ala. If he forgets to mention the name of Allah at the beginning, let him say, 'Bismillahi awwalahu wa aakhirahu'."
