Dua (Supplication) Before And After Eating




Eating food gives energy to the body in order to carry out day to day activities easily; without food, nobody can survive for long.

It is Sunnah for a Muslim to make dua (supplication) before and after eating or drinking. This is the way The Prophet (peace be upon him) has recommended every Muslim to do before any consumption of meals.

Below are the duas  to say before eating and after eating:





Before Eating

Translation


In the name of Allah

(recite this dua If you forgot to say bismi-l-lahi before eating) With the name of Allah, in the beginning, and in the end.
