Assalaamu alaykum,

Is it sunnah or obligatory to eat and drink with three fingers? Which three fingers would it constitute?

JazaakAllahkhair,

Justin

wa 'aliakumus-salaam warahmatullahi wabarakaatuh,

Noble Brother Justin, may Allah bless you and make you steadfast upon the path of the Salaf-us-Salih. I found the following at www.troid.org (here):

[11]: He (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) used to eat using the first three fingers (of his right hand), which is the best way of eating.

and from: [url=http://www.scribd.com/doc/4695769/100-authentic-sunnah]here[/url] (maashaa'Allah, this is quite beneficial with about 100 ahadeeth mostly from the 2 Sahih's), I found:

Eating with three fingers:
It is narrated on the authority of Ka'b bin Maal (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu 'alayhi wa salam used to eat with three fingers and lick his hand before wiping it. [Muslim 5297]

Hope this helps a bit at least,
BaarakAllahu feek wa jazakAllah khayraa,
Your brohter in Islaam,
Sadiq.

Assalaamu alaykum Sadiq,

JazakAllahkhair for the ahadith. Alhamdulillah, I've been Muslim for two or three years now, but I'm still learning the basics, insha'Allah. Eating with three fingers may not be 'basic', but I try to follow what I know of the Sunnah as much as possible, insha'Allah.

What exactly constitutes 3 fingers? Is it
1. index finger, middle finger, ring finger and thumb or
2. index finger, middle finger and thumb?

JazakAllaahu khayra.

This is extremely important brother. May Allah make it easy for you, grant you success, make you of those He loves, and enter you into His Jannah. Ameen

{Say (O Muhammad [sal-Allahu 'alayhi wa sallam] to mankind): "If you (really) love Allah, then follow me (i.e. accept Islamic Monotheism, follow the Qur'an and the Sunnah), Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."} (Surah al-'Imraan:31)

Assalamu'Alaikom

Therefore is Eating with the 3 fingers higly recommended only? Are we punished if we don't do it?

Jazakallahu khairan
