Sunnah 27: Drink in 3 sips

May 16, 2010

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Anas ibn Malik (ra) relates that the Prophet (pbuh) drank water in three breaths (i.e. in three gulps/sips) [Tirmidhi]

Water should be drunk in three breaths, that is one should breathe three times outside the drinking vessel one is drinking from. This habit has a salutary impact on one’s character and helps one avoid doing things in haste. [excerpted from islamweb.com]
