The Sunnahs of Drinking
1- basmalah : mentioning allah’s name. (saying: in the name of allah).
2- handling the drink with the right hand; as the prophet (pbuh) said to the kid: " say the basmalah and eat with your right hand"
3- breathing (exhale and inhale) outside of the drinking pot thrice; which means to take a sip then breath outside the pot then repeat this process for three times as the prophet (pbuh) used to do (narrated by imam muslim)
4- drink in a sitting position: the prophet (pbuh) said: " none of you should drink while standing" (imam muslim)
5- bidding thanks to allah after drinking: the prophet (pbuh) said: " allah get content with his worshippers if they thank him after eating or after drinking" (imam muslim)
the sum of the sunnahs of drinking would exceed twenty, and we should notice drinks include all sorts of soft or hot drinks.
