Blowing on food?

Nasihah (Advice): The Best Islam

Narrated by Abu Musa Radhiyallahu Anhu : Some people asked Rasulullah Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam “Whose Islam is the best?” He replied, “One who avoids harming the Muslims with his tongue and hands.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari Vol 1)

Question and Answer:

Q. Please advise whether it is true that we are not allowed to blow on the food to cool it down? If so, please advise what is the source of this?

(Question published as received)

A. It is discouraged to blow on food to cool it down. If the food or drink is hot, it should be allowed to cool down naturally before partaking of it. In the Musannaf of Imam Abu Bakr bin Abi Shaybah, which is a famous compilation of Hadith, it is recorded that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) prohibited blowing in food and drink. (Hadith #: 24658)
