Stop your play, its time to eat,
Come wash your hands and take a seat,
Before you start though, bring to mind,
The mercy of Allah Who is so kind.
So begin in the name of Allah,
By always saying Bismillah,
Dont dish out more than you can eat,
For Muslims shouldnt over-eat.
And one thing you must understand,
Its good to eat with your right hand,
Never stuff your mouth with food,
That would surely be most rude.
Take your time and chew quite well,
Pick up morsels in case it fell,
Eat your food and leave no waste,
Theres no need to eat in haste.
Drink your tea and sip it slow,
You dont have to gulp you know,
When youre finished thank Allah,
By always saying AI-Hamdulillah.
