Eating from one plate in a da’wat

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If two people at a dawat, or anywhere, have their own plates in front of them before a meal, but choose instead to share one plate, 1) will there be extra barkat in this? 2) Is this Sunnat? Or is this not sensible due to there being 2 plates available.



1. Insha-Allah.

2. It is closer to the sunnat.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
