Assalamualaikum, in this article we will go over the best dua to recite when drinking milk.
As Muslims, it’s important to build habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes our way. We should give thanks continuously because all things contribute to our advancement.
So this begs the question…
What’s the best dua to recite either before or after drinking milk?
It was Narrated by Abdullah ibn Abbas,
I was in the house of Maymunah. The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) accompanied by Khalid ibn al-Walid entered. Two roasted long-tailed lizards (dabb) placed on the sticks were brought to him.
The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) spat. Khalid said: I think that you abominate it, Messenger of Allah. He said: Yes. Then the Messenger of Allah was brought milk, and he drank (it).
The Messenger of Allah then said: When one of you eats food, he should say: O Allah, bless us in it, and give us food (or nourishment) better than it. When he is given milk to drink he should say: O Allah! bless us in it and give us more of it, for no food or drink satisfies like milk.
Reference: Hadith Sunan Abi Dawud #3730
allaahumma baarik lanaa feehi wa zidnaa minh
Whomever Allah gives milk to drink should say: “O Allah, bless it for us and give us more of it.”
The simple truth is gratitude can help us Muslims refocus on what we have been given by Allah rather than what we lack. It’s almost impossible to remain angry or bitter when you are actively looking for things to be grateful for.
It can be small things like the fact you have a microwave. It’s really amazing that you can eat or drink some food at just the right temperature by pressing few buttons.
