Having salt before meals

Question

Is there any authenticity in the action stating that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi was sallam) used to put salt in his blessed palm and taste it before and after eating?

 

Answer

I haven’t seen a Hadith that clearly states such.

There is an unreliable narration that allegedly encouraged this. See it here.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
