Hadith Explanation

Eat from the Sides

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Blessing descends upon food in its middle, so eat from the sides of the vessel and do not eat from its middle.” [Tirmidhi]

This hadith tells us in which manner to eat from the food before us. We should eat from the portion in front of us or from the sides of the dish and definitely not from its middle. This will allow Allah’s blessing to continue to descend on the food, making it sufficient and nourishing for us. In addition, and most importantly, we will get the reward for following the Sunnah if we eat in this manner, inshaAllah.
