In the Name of Allah, Most Merciful and Compassionate
All praise to Allah, Lord of the Worlds. And salutations and greetings upon our master Muhammad and upon his family and companions.
I intend to study and teach, take and give a reminder, take and give benefit, take and give advantage, to encourage the holding fast to the book of Allah and the way of his messenger, and calling to guidance and directing towards good hoping for the countenance of Allah and His pleasure, proximity and reward, transcendent is He.
Sunnah of drinking water
- Sit and have the vessel in your right hand
- Do not breath into the vessel
- Look at the water in the vessel – it goes with the ayah in Qur’an that says ‘Don’t you gaze at the water that you drink…’ – Surah Waqi’ah
Then take 3 sips not gulps
Before taking the first sip say BISMILLAH: small sip (do not slurp)
After swallowing say Alhamdulillah
Before taking the second sip which is a bit longer and say bismillah ar-rahman
After swallowing say alhamdulillah rabil a’lameen
Before the third sip say Bismillah Ar-rahmaan ar-raheem
This is the longest sip
After swallowing say alhamdulillah rabil a’lameen ar-rahmaan ar-raheem
Please make dua for the sister who sent this to me.
