Hadith on Cooking: Recommendation to eat food after it cools down

April 7, 2017

Ibn Shihab reported: Asma bint Abi Bakr, may Allah be pleased with her, when cooking a meal would cover it with something until its boiling and steaming would fade away. Then she would say, “I heard the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, say: Verily, there is greater blessing in it.”

عَنِ ابْنِ شِهَابٍ عَنْ أَسْمَاءَ بِنْتِ أَبِي بَكْرٍ رضي الله عنها أَنَّهَا كَانَتْ إِذَا ثَرَدَتْ غَطَّتْهُ شَيْئًا حَتَّى يَذْهَبَ فَوْرُهُ ثُمَّ تَقُولُ إِنِّي سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُولُ إِنَّهُ أَعْظَمُ لِلْبَرَكَةِ
