Ahadith – On Using the Right Hand and Three Fingers

29Nov09

In Sahih Muslim it is related from Ibn ‘Umar radiallahu anhu that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhe wa sallam said “When eating eat with the right hand and when drinking drink with the right hand.”

In Sahih Muslim it is related from the same (companion) that the Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallam said “None of you should eat nor drink with your left hand as it is Shaytan’s way to eat and drink with the left hand.”

Ibn Majah reported from Abu Hurayra radiallahu anhu that the Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallam stated “Eat with your right hand and drink with your right hand and take with your right hand and give with your right hand because Shaytan eats with his left hand and drinks with his left hand and takes with his left hand and gives with his left hand.”

Ibn an-Najjar reported from Abu Hurayra radiallahu anhu that the Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallam said “Eating (lifting the morsel) with three fingers is the way of the Prophets (peace be upon all of them).”

Hakim reported from Ibn Abbas radiallahu anhu that the Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallam said “Eat with three fingers as it is the Sunnah (the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) and do not eat with five fingers as it is the way of the A’arab (uncultivated bedouins).”
