    Title: Eating on dining table

    Question: I learnt that Huzur Mohammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam never ate at a table. Here my question is eating at a table is sinful or not. What is the Islamic ruling on eating at a table at home?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 229/167/B=3/1443)


    The Prophet Mahammad (may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) always sat on the ground and ate. It is not proved from him to eat on table, this is against the Sunnah. So, whether you eat at home or outside, eat sitting on the ground. It is against Sunnah to eat on a chair and table.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
