19. Whilst eating, one should not remain completely silent.[1]

20. One should eat with three fingers if possible (i.e. the thumb, index finger and middle finger).

عن كعب بن مالك أن النبى صلى الله عليه وسلم كان يأكل بثلاث أصابع ولا يمسح يده حتى يلعقها ( أبو داود #3850 )

Hazrat Ka’b bin Maalik (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) used to eat with three fingers, and he would not wipe his hands until he licked his fingers.

21. One should not eat very hot food.

وعن أسماء بنت أبي بكر أنها كانت إذا أتيت بثريد أمرت به فغطي حتى تذهب فورة دخانه وتقول إني سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول هو أعظم للبركة ) الدارمي #2047 )

Hazrat Asmaa bint Abi Bakr (radhiallahu ‘anhuma) relates that whenever she was given any thareed (a type of dish), she would instruct that it be covered until the food cooled down, and she would say, “I heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) saying that it (consuming food that is not extremely hot) is a greater source of blessings.”

[1]ويكره السكون حالة الأكل لأنه تشبه بالمجوس ويتكلم بالمعروف (شامي 6/340)
