English poetry, Mindful


Who do you call for imitating bits?
A twittering creature,
Eating your wits,
What do you see,
When you hear chits?
A colorful bird,
Mimicking spoken scripts,
Who is an alarm,
For early morning sips?
A feathery rascal,
Jumping in skips,
Who is the source of chattering crisps?
A parrot munching,
Tasty chips!

Eating hadith

Eating 2

Narrated ‘Umar bin Abi Salama: I was a boy under the care of Allah’s Apostle (PBUH) and my hand used to go around the dish while I was eating. So Allah’s Apostle (PBUH) said to me, ‘O boy! Mention the Name of Allah and eat with your right hand, and eat of the dish what is nearer to you.” Since then I have applied those instructions when eating. (Sahih Bukhari)
