Assalamualekum

What is Sunnah of Prophet for drinking of water while eating food/meal.

(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Answer:

Sunnah of drinking water with meal

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

Respected brother, to the best of our knowledge the drinking of water while eating a meal is neither encouraged nor discouraged in the authentic and established Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws).  If one is thirsty while eating one’s meal one may drink as much water as one wills, and if one is not thirsty one may abstain.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

Burhan
