of licking them. What a pity, the Muslim community has gone far away from the teachings and excellent example of
their Prophet (PBUH)!

Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) 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.''
A Muslim should be perpetually on his guard against satanic insinuations, even at mealtime. He is
required to recite the Name of Allah in the very beginning so that he may be immune from satanic participation and
mischief. If a man avoids picking up the fallen morsel, he will be providing Satan and his minions a chance to share
food with him. So we seek the Refuge of Allah from the condemned Satan and his associates.

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Whenever Messenger of Allah (PBUH) 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 (PBUH) also commanded us that we should glean
the pot, saying, "You do not know in which part of your food the blessings lies.''

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
(PBUH), 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).''
There are three points in this Hadith. First, the life of the Companions was simple, divested of all
kinds of luxuries and comforts. They lived on whatever was available to them. Second, a man's ablution is not
nullified by eating a cooked food. In the early days of Islam, this command was put into practice but later it was
cancelled. Third, if a handkerchief, or a towel or water is not available, a man can (after taking a meal) clean his
mouth and hands with his palms and wrists so that his clothes will not be smeared during Salat
