Question:


Asalamualaikum.

Hazrat, Does blowing on meat make it makruh to eat? My aunty told me this, and I did not believe her.


Answer:


Bismillah


Ibn Abbas said that, ‘The Messenger of Allah ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) probibited blowing into food and drink’ [Musnad Ahmad]


Munawi explains that blowing indicates excessive greediness and a lack of patience. [Munawi, Fayd al-Qadir Sharh al-Jami` al-Saghir]


Fatawa Hindiyya mentions a quote from the Nawadir in which Qadi Abu Yusuf (The student of Imam Abu Haneefah), was asked whether or not it was disliked to blow upon food, he responded that it was not, as long as it was done without a sound.


And Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) knows best
