The Sunnah Way Of Eating Food. by Taamas111 (m): 2:06am on January 14

Question

assalam wa alykum what is the sunnah way
of eating food? how should it be eaten,
whether it should be eaten by all the five
fingers or 3 fingers (thumb,index finger and
middle finger) because some people say that
sunnah way of eating is with 3fingers only
(mentioned above)?

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

It is good to mention some etiquette that
one should observe when eating, among
which are the following:

1- Washing the hands before and after
eating.
2- Supplicating Allah to bless the food.
3- Saying Bismillaah (in the Name of
Allah) before eating.
4- Eating with the right hand.
5- Eating from what is nearest to the
person.
6- Not criticizing the food; if one likes
it, he should eat from it, otherwise
he should leave it.
7- Eating with three fingers.
8- Not eating while leaning on
something.
9- Saying ‘Al-Hamdulillaah’ after
finishing eating.

Therefore, eating with three fingers is among
the etiquette of eating.
Hishaam ibn ‘Urwah , may Allah be pleased
with him, identified these three fingers as he
said: “The thumb, the index finger and the
middle finger. ” Eating with these three
fingers is desirable but it is permissible to
eat with more than three fingers, and one
may need that when the food is not
consistent.
Allah Knows best.
