Excellence of Eating with three Fingers and Licking them

Imam Al-Nawawi’s Riyad-us-Saliheen

Chapter 109
Excellence of Eating with three Fingers and Licking them
748. Ibn `Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them)
reported: Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa
sallam) said, “When one of you finishes eating, he
should not wipe his fingers until he has licked them
himself or has given them to someone else to lick for
him.”
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

749. Ka`b bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with him)
reported: I saw Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi
wa sallam) eating with three fingers (i.e., the thumb, the
index finger and the middle finger) and licking them after
having finished the food.
[Muslim].

750. Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam)
commanded the licking of fingers and the gleaning of the
dish, saying, “You do not know in which portion the
blessing lies.”
[Muslim].

751. Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said,
“When a morsel of any of you falls, he should pick it up
and remove any of the dirt on it and then eat it, and
should not leave it for Satan nor should wipe his hand
with towel until he has licked his fingers, for he does not
know in what portion of the food the blessing lies.”
[Muslim].

752. Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said,
“Satan appears at every thing done by you; he appears
even at one’s dinner. When a morsel of any of you falls,
he should pick it up and remove any dirt on it, and then
eat it. He should not leave it for Satan, nor should he
wipe his hand with the towel until he has licked his
fingers, for he does not know in what portion of the food
the blessing lies.”
[Muslim].

753. Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
Whenever Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa
sallam) ate food, he would lick his three fingers and say,
“If anyone of you drops a morsel of food, he should
remove any dirt that may have stuck on it and then eat it,
and should not leave it for Satan.” He (sallallaahu ’alayhi
wa sallam) also commanded us that we should glean the
pot, saying, “You do not know in which part of your food
the blessings lies.”
[Muslim].

754. Sa`id bin Al-Harith reported: I asked Jabir (May
Allah be pleased with him) whether it was obligatory to
make Wudu’ for Salat (prayer) after eating cooked food.

He said: “No, because in the lifetime of Messenger of
Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam), such food was
rarely available. We had no handkerchiefs, so when we
ate such food we would wipe our fingers against our
palms, forearms or (the sole of our) feet, and would offer Salat without fresh Wudu’ (for prayer).”
[Al-Bukhari].
