Forks & Knives (Hadith No. 207)


How often have you heard that eating with spoons, forks and knives goes against the Sunnah? And that we should try to eat with our fingers only..? Well, it ought to be proven wrong. Read on..

Volume 1, Book 4, Number 207:

Narrated Ja’far bin ‘Amr bin Umaiya:

My father said, “I saw Allah’s Apostle taking a piece of (cooked) mutton from the shoulder region and then he was called for prayer. He put his knife down and prayed without repeating ablution.”

He was cutting meat with a knife. Say what? :D

Hence it is proven! Cutlery can and may be used while eating. It’s a Sunnah! :)
