Is it Sunnah to sit and eat?

 

Answer

It is Sunnah to sit and eat. There are numerous Hadiths wherein Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) prohibited drinking/eating while standing.

 

Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) forbade that a person stands and drinks. Qatadah (rahimahullah) asked, ‘what about eating [while standing]?’. He replied, ‘That is worse’.

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2024)
