6 Adab Drink According to the Sunnah of the Prophet

Islam teaches some sunnah, especially when going to drink water. This is also explained in some hadith history, where Muslims can follow the ethics that have been taught by religion.

The following are the six sunahs of the Prophet or ethics before drinking water :

1. Before drinking read Bismillah is sunnah of prophet

In Islam it is taught, when going to do the beginning by reading bismillah. Including before we drink water, we must begin with a prayer or a sentence of God. As in the hadith explained, the Prophet Shallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam said:

“When I started drinking first read Bismillah.” (Tirmidhi).

2. Using the right hand

In a hadith the Prophet said :

إِذَا أَكَلَ أَحَدُكُمْ فَلْيَأْكُلْ بِيَمِينِهِ ، وَإِذَا شَرِبَ فَلْيَشْرَبْ بِيَمِينِهِ , فَإِنَّ الشَّيْطَانَ يَأْكُلُ بِشِمَالِهِ وَيَشْرَبُ بِشِمَالِهِ

“If one of you will eat, let him eat with his right hand, and if he will drink, and he should also drink with his right hand. For satan eats and drinks with his left hand.” (HR. Muslims).

As explained in the hadith, that it is circumcised to eat and drink using the right hand. If you use your left hand, it is the same as following satan’s actions.

Even if a person is left-handed or always uses his left hand, then it is still advisable to use his right hand.

3. Sit down while drinking or eating is sunnah of prophet

Another Prophet is to always sit down when drinking or eating. This advice is also explained in the hadith of Muslim history.

The Prophet said, “Sit down and drink.” (Muslims).

Prophet Jesus (Isa) According To Islam

4. Drink with three breaths

When drinking it is recommended to breathe outside the glass a maximum of three times. In the hadith narrated by Imam Bukhari and Muslim from Anas bin Malik, the Prophet Muhammad said:

كان رسولُ اللهِ صلَّى اللهُ عليه وسلَّمَ يتنفَّسُ في الشرابِ ثلاثًا

“The Prophet (peace be upon him) breathed three times while drinking.” Bukhari-Muslim).

5. Do not blow the water to be drunk

When drinking tea or hot coffee, so it is not too hot we usually blow it. It turns out that the Prophet even advised not to blow it, because it was feared that it would bring out diseases through the air.

The Prophet said:

“Never blow from your mouth into food and drink.” Thabrani).

6. Say Hamdalah is sunnah of Prophet

If when drinking water starts with Bismillah, then when ending it say Alhamdulillah as a cover and at the same time gratitude to Allah Ta’ala.

Then in order to be more afdhal can read the following prayer:

اَلْحَمْدُ ِللهِ الَّذِىْ جَعَلَهُ عَذْبًا فُرَاتًا بِرَحْمَتِهِ وَلَمْ يَجْعَلْهُ مِلْحًا اُجَاجًا بِذُنُوْبِنَا

(Alhamdu lillahil ladzi ja’alahu ‘adzban furotan birohmatihi wa lamyaj’alhu milhan ujajan bidzunubina).

“Praise be to Allah who by His mercy has made this water fresh and refreshing. And do not make this water salty and bitter for our sins.”
