Umar bin Abu Salamah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:The messenger of Allah (Peace and blessing be upon him), said to me, “Mention Allah’s name (i.e., say Bismillah before starting eating), eat with your right hand, and eat from what is near you.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported:The messenger of Allah (Peace and blessing be upon him) said, “When any of you wants to eat, he should mention the name of Allah in the beginning, (i.e., say Bismillah). If he forgets to do it in the beginning, he should say “Bismillah awwalahu wa akhirahu” (I begin with the Name of Allah at the beginning and at the end).” [At-Tirmidhi and Abu Dawud]
Umaiyyah bin Makhshi (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:The messenger of Allah (Peace and blessing be upon him) was sitting while a man was eating food. That man did not mention the name of Allah (before commencing to eat) till only a morsel of food was left. When he raised it to his mouth, he said: “Bismillah awwalahu wa akhirahu” (With the Name of Allah, in the beginning and in the end).
The messenger of Allah (Peace and blessing be upon him) smiled at this and said, “Satan had been eating with him but when he mentioned the name of Allah, Satan vomited all that was in his stomach.” [Abu Dawud and An-Nasa’i]
