Using the Right Hand 
 
chapter 23 /  the Toilet 
 
Istinjaa is an Arabic word. It means purification. If 
you purify something, you make it clean by 
removing every dirty and harmful thing from it. 
 
When you need to go to the toilet, do not carry 
anything with you that has Allah’s Name on it. 
Before stepping into the toilet with your left foot, say: 
 
Bismillaah. Allaahumma innee a’oodhu bika minal- 
khubuthi wal-Khabaa’ith 
 
In the name of Allah. 
 
O Allah, I seek protection in you from the mole and 
female devils 
 
Keep yourself screened from view by closing the 
door of the toilet. 
 
Do not talk while relieving yourself. You should not 
return the greeting (as-Salaamu Alaikum) of 
someone who greets you. Do not respond to 
anyone who talks to you. Do not urinate while 
standing, without a good reason. 
 
If you sneeze, you should praise Allah in your heart. 
 
Al-Hamdu lillaah. 
 
All praises and thanks are due to Allah. 
Do not say it loudly. 
 
If you have to answer the call of nature outdoors, 
you should use an out-of-the-way spot where the 
ground is soft and where no one can see you. You 
must not urinate in holes, wells, pits or in the shade 
of trees. 
 
chapter 23/ the Toilet 
 
After relieving yourself, clean yourself well with 
water. But if you are using a tissue make sure to wipe 
yourself at least three times – with a fresh tissue each 
time. 
 
Come out of the toilet with your right foot first, 
saying: 
 
Ghufraanak. 
 
I seek your forgiveness, (O Allah). 
 
5 – T-hara means purification. 
 

  1. Circle the correct answer. 

 
Do not say (Al-Hamdu lillaah) loudly while

clothes. Sit straight at the table. You may keep your hands on your lap when you are not eating. Immediately before eating or 
drinking you should say: 
 
Food and drink are great gifts from Allah. Wash your hands properly before eating. 
Come to the table in clean 
Bismillaah and after eating or drinking you should say: 
 Al-Hamdu lillaah 
 
Pick up a small morsel of food with your right hand, 
then chew it well and swallow it slowly. 
 
If you are sharing your plate with somebody, take the food from your side of the plate. 
 
Chapter  24 /Etiquette of Eating and Drinking 
 
If there are different kinds of food, it is all right if you move your hand around. The same is true of fruits and sweetmeats. Use three fingers to handle food. 
You should not blow on food or drink, nor breathe inside the container. Hold the cup or glass away from your mouth, then bring it to close again after you have caught your breath. Do not recline while eating or drinking. 
 
It is permissible to eat 
and drink while 
standing, but sitting 
down to eat and drink is 
much better. 
 
When you eat, bring the food to your mouth. Do 
not bend to meet it 
 
halfway between your plate and your seat. The hand, which is not in use, may remain on your lap or on the table. 
 
Allah’s Messenger ) said, “Let no one among you 
eat with his left or drink with his left, for Satan eats with 
 
his left and drinks with his left.” 
 
Don’t call attention to your eating, making unnecessary noise either with your mouth or with your plate. 
 
Talking with your mouth full is a sign of very bad table manners. Once you have placed a morsel of food into your mouth, do not take it out again. If a bite of food is too hot, take a sip of water or any other drink being served with the meal to cool it down. When you eat something and then unhappily discover that you do not like it at all, then swallow it; don’t spit it out. But if you happen to take a bite of food that is spoiled, you may spit it out without attracting attention. While having a meal, do not stretch except when there is a need for it. 
 
Chapter 24 /Etiquette of Eating and Drinking 
 
Try not to blow your nose at the table. If you have to, 
do it quickly and quietly, turning your head to one side, away from people. 
 
When you finish your meal, say the following du’aa: 
 
Al-Hamdu lillaahilladhee at’amanaa wa saqaanaa 
wa ja’alanaa muslimeen 
 
All praise is for Allah Who has provided us with food and 
drink and mode us Muslims
