Another Sunnah du’a to recite when eating


Is this du’a authentic?

اللهم بارك لنا فيه وأطعمنا خيرا منه

Allahumma barik lana fihi wa at’imna khayram minhu



Imams Tirmidhi and Abu Dawud (rahimahumallah) have recorded this du’a. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) instructed that this du’a be recited [before] eating.

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith sound (hasan).

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3455 and Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 3723)



O Allah! Grant us blessing in this food and feed us better than it.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
