  • Eating habits and diet of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)

    Question :

    What were the diet and eating habits of the Prophet , and his Companians?

    Answer :

    Praise be to Allaah.
    1. BismillaahBismillaahi fi awwalihi wa aakhirihi
      The correct view is that it is obligatory to mention the name of Allaah (say Bismillaah) when eating. The ahaadeeth which state this are saheeh and are clear, with no contradictions in them.
    2. (Allaah be praised with an abundant, beautiful, blessed praise. He is the One Who is Sufficient, Who feeds and is never fed, The One Who is longed for, along with that which is with Him, and the One Who is needed. He is Our Lord, may He be glorified). Narrated by al-Bukhaari (5142).
    3. He never criticized food at all. If he liked it, he would eat it, and if he did not like it, he would leave it and not say anything. Narrated by al-Bukhaari (3370) and Muslim (2064).
    4. He used to talk whilst he was eating, as is seen from the report quoted above about vinegar.
    5. He commanded those who complained that they never felt full to eat together and not separately, and to mention the name of Allaah (say Bismillaah
      (See , 2/397-406)
    6. He used to eat using the first three fingers (of his right hand), which is the best way of eating.
    See: , 220-222. And Allaah knows best.
    1. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to know what he was eating.
    2. He used to eat what was good for him.
    3. al-Silsilah al-Saheehah (2265).
    And Allaah knows best.

    Seven things that shouldn't be done after a meal

    Seven things shouldn't do after a meal

    Don't drink tea - Because tea leaves contain a high content of acid. Thissubstance will cause the Protein content in the food we consume to be hardenedthus difficult to digest.

    Don't eat fruits immediately - Immediately eating fruits after meals willcause stomach to be bloated with air. Therefore take fruit 1-2 hr after meal or 1hr before meal.

    Don't loosen your belt - Loosening the belt after a meal will easily causethe intestine to be twisted & blocked.

    Don't bathe - Bathing will cause the increase of blood flow to the hands, legs & body thus the amount of blood around the stomach will thereforedecrease. This will weaken the digestive system in our stomach.

    Don't walk about - People always say that after a meal walk a hundred stepsand you will live till 99. In actual fact this is not true. Walking will causethe digestive system to be unable to absorb the nutrition from the food weintake.

    Don't sleep immediately - The food we intake will not be able to digest
