Taking of little bit of salt before you eat?

Is it anywhere in the records of the hadith or from the sahabah that says to take a little bit of salt before you eat?


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

Dear brother, we want to assure you that, there is absolutely no evidence that our beloved prophet(pbuh) or his companions ever practiced to taste salt before eating meals or anything.

If anyone invents a lie against Prophet Mohammad (pbuh), he will surely enter the crushing hell fire.

Narrated by Hadrat Ali ibn Abi Taalib (r.a.) The Prophet (saws) said, "Do not tell a lie against me; for whoever tells a lie against me (intentionally) then he will surely enter the Hell-fire." SAHIH AL-BUKHARI[VOL: 1 , Book: 3 , Hadith 106]. And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
