Is there Hadith which says that by blowing on ones food the barakah vanishes?



This has been reported in the following Hadith:

Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) reported that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Blowing in food removes the blessings.”

However, the Muhaddithun have declared the narration a fabrication.

(Refer: Talkhisu Kitabil Mawdu’at of ‘Allamah Dhahabi, Hadith: 690 and Al Manarul Munif, Hadith: 118. Also see: Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2 pg. 258, Al Asrarul Marfu’ah, pg. 420 with footnotes of Shaykh ‘Abdul Fattah Abu Ghuddah rahimahullah on Al Manarul Munif, Hadith: 118)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
