The fourth important thing about “can I pray after eating in Islam?” what I will explain now is “eat first or pray first: what is better according to Islam?”. I want you to understand that at the end of this discussion so that you have a good understanding of prayer after eating after reading this article.
Before I explain the answer to that question (eat first or pray first: what is better according to Islam?), I will quote a hadith that is specifically related to this discussion. One hadith that I mean is as follows:
عَنْ أَنَسٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ ؛ إِذَا قُدِّمَ الْعَشَاءُ فَابْدَءُوْا بِهِ قَبْلَ أَنْ تُصَلُّوْا الْمَغْرِبَ . مُتَّفَقٌ عَلَيْهِ
From Anas radliyallahu anhu, that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said, “If the dish for the afternoon has been served, then eat first before you pray Maghrib.” The hadith is narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim.
Readers all! If we understand the hadith above, we can conclude that if we are faced with two choices (eat first or pray first), then we are advised to eat first so we can concentrate on praying. But if we are afraid of missing the prayer time if we eat first, then we must pray first. Here’s the answer.
That is a brief explanation of “eat first or pray first: what is better according to Islam?”. As Muslims, we must understand that.
Readers all! That is a brief explanation of “can I pray after eating in Islam?” and some important things about it. Do you understand? If you have questions, feel free to ask!
I think that’s enough for this article. Hope it is useful. Amen.
See you again in the next article.
