Is there any Hadith which states that one should take forty steps after eating meals?
I have not come across this in any Hadith.
‘Allamah Ibn Qayyim (rahimahullah) has cited this as the advice of the Arab doctor; Al Harith ibn Kaladah who suggested taking forty steps after partaking of dinner.
(Zadul Ma’ad, vol. 4 pg. 374)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
