Good Deed: #351 – Three sips

Ibn ‘Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) reported:
Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Do not drink in one gulp like a camel, but in two or three (gulps). Mention the Name of Allah (i.e., say Bismillah) when you start drinking and praise Him (i.e., say Al-hamdu lillah) after you have finished (drinking).”

[At- Tirmidhi].

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) used to breathe three times in the course of a drink (he used to drink in three gulps).
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) prohibited us blowing in the drinking water. A man said: “O Messenger of Allah! Sometimes I see some litter floating about on the surface. What should I do then?” He (ﷺ) replied, “Pour them out.” Then the man said: “My thirst is not quenched with one draught.” Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Then put away the cup from your mouth (in between three gulps), and take breath.”
[At-Tirmidhi].
