Duaa after Eating -7

After completing the meal, one should recite the following duaa:

اَلحَمْدُ للهِ الَّذِي هُوَ أَشْبَعَنَا وَأَرْوَانَا وَأَنْعَمَ وَأفْضَلَ

All praise belongs to Allah, the one who has satiated us, quenched our thirst and has showered us with bounties and blessed us with His grace.

عن ابن عباس قال: … فلما أكلوا وشبعوا قال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم: خبز ولحم، وبسر وتمر ورطب. ودمعت عيناه، ثم قال: هذا من النعيم الذي تسألون عنه يوم القيامة . فكبر ذلك على أصحابه، فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : إذا أصبتم مثل هذا، وضربتم بأيديكم، فقولوا: بسم الله، وبركة الله، فإذا شبعتم فقولوا الحمد لله الذي أشبعنا وأروانا وأنعم وأفضل، فإن هذا كفاف بهذا. (مجمع الزوائد رقم 18261)

Hazrat ibn Abbaas (Radhiyallahu Anhuma) reports that on one occasion, after Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) ate and were satiated, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) enumerated the varieties of food they had eaten by saying: “(We have been granted) bread, meat, semi-ripe dates, dry dates, and fresh dates.” After enumerating the varieties of food, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) began to cry (out of gratitude to Allah Ta‘ala), and thereafter said, “All these are the bounties of Allah Ta‘ala regarding which you will be questioned on the day of Qiyaamah.” This statement of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) greatly concerned the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) (as they feared accountability in the court of Allah Ta‘ala). Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then said: “When you obtain such food and intend to partake of it, then commence eating by taking the name of Allah Ta’ala saying:  

بِسْمِ اللهِ وَبَرَكَةِ اللهِ

And when you are satisfied, then recite the following Duaa, it will suffice (in showing gratitude to Allah Ta‘ala and you will not be questioned) for what you have eaten.”

اَلحَمْدُ للهِ الَّذِي هُوَ أَشْبَعَنَا وَأَرْوَانَا وَأَنْعَمَ وَأفْضَلَ
