Sunnah method of drinking water

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I would like to confirm about the sunnat way of drinking water, should we drink water in 3 breaths or 3 sips.

Could you please provide arabic ibaarat as well?


A: 3 breaths means that you move the glass away from your mouth after the first sip, take another breath and then take a second sip.

You may look in the sharah of Abu Dawood Shareef.

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