عُمَرَ بن أبي سَلَمَةَ يقول كنت غُلَامًا في حَجْرِ رسول اللَّهِ  صلى الله عليه وسلم  وَكَانَتْ يَدِي تَطِيشُ في الصَّحْفَةِ فقال لي رسول اللَّهِ  صلى الله عليه وسلم  يا غُلَامُ سَمِّ اللَّهَ وَكُلْ بِيَمِينِكَ وَكُلْ مِمَّا يَلِيكَ فما زَالَتْ تِلْكَ طِعْمَتِي بَعْدُ

‘Umar ibn Abi Salamah (rta) says: “I was an infant and was being brought up under [the supervision] of God’s Messenger (sws) when while eating my hand would circulate all over the plate. When God’s Messenger (sws) [saw this,] he remarked: ‘Young Man! Eat after taking God’s name with the right hand from the part of the plate near you.’ Consequently, after this I would eat in this manner.”[1]
