Habib Umar ibn Hafiz

Dowra 2007

Part five

Awarif al-Marif

They used to eat and start with Bismillah for the first morsel, then Bismillah Ar-Rahman for the second, then Bismillah Ar-Rahman Ar-Raheem for the third

To bring with three breaths

The sleep of a scholar is worship

Like the sleep of the faster

The most important thing about food that is halal

To partake in permissible food needs a lot of knowledge

Not just Bismillah and eat

Every tree in paradise says Subhanllah, La illah ila Allah, Allahuakbar – Praise be God’s, there is no deity except God, God is the greatest.

Wash your hands before food – this shows gratefulness and this will not prevent you from it later

As it states in the Quran, “If you are grateful, you will be given more.”

A date was found in the street the Prophet said, “If I was fearful that you were not alms I would’ve eaten you.” He gave it to his companions

When you eat say Bismillah – in the name of Allah

Don’t eat anything that you haven’t pronounced the name of Allah over

Imam Ghazali (may Allah be pleased with him) lived until he was 55 but benefited the Muslims immensely

When you are cooking pronounce the name of Allah

“I eat and I pray,” said Imam Sharwadi, this means his eating and prayer, he was in the same state – worship

Mention your Lord, mention Allah, mention the Prophet (Peace and blessings f Allah be upon him)

Use the supplications after you finish eating

Etiquettes of food

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah upon him) told Ali (may Allah be pleased with him), “Put salt in your food because it is a cure for seventeen illnesses.”

Its better to have many people eating

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah upon him) said, “The best of food is the one with the most hands.”

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah upon him) said, “I eat like a slave and I sit like a slave.”

When the companions would eat with the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah upon him) they would wait until he would begin

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah upon him) said, “Eat, drink and give with your right hand because satan eats, drinks and gives with the left hand.”

To complain about food looses its blessing

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah upon him) said, “What a blessed sauce vinegar is, O’ Allah bless us by it, as it was the food of the Prophets before me, a house is not poor without it.”

The disobedient and the hypocrites are all Muslims, they are all Muslims
