Story no. 70: Wajeeh at the table
Whenever Wajeeh sat at the table and started to eat food, he did not say Bismillah and did not thank God after meals.
One day his brother, Najeeb said “Don’t you see that before Mom and Dad begin to eat they say Bismillah and at the end of it they say Alhamdu lillah?
Wajeeh replied “Why do they do so?
His brother said “They say so because all these vegetables, fruits, bread, water and everything else is gifted to us by God. So it is very good if we start and end food with his name”.
And other tan that, the leaders of Islam have always requested us to say this and we must obey them.
