‘When you are about to eat, you should say:

بِسْمِ الله .

 Bismil-lah.

…and if you forget to say it before starting, then you should say (when you remember):

بِسْمِ اللهِ في أَوَّلِهِ وَآخِـرِه .

Bismil-lahi fee awwalihi wa-akhirih.

‘In the name of Allah in it’s beginning and end.’

 

(171)   

‘Whomever Allah feeds, should say:

اللّهُـمَّ بارِكْ لَنا فيهِ وَأَطْـعِمْنا خَـيْراً مِنْـه.

 Allahumma barik lana feehi wa-atAAimna khayran minh.

 ‘O Allah, bless it for us and feed us better than it.’

….and whomever Allah gives milk to drink should say:

اللّهُـمَّ بارِكْ لَنا فيهِ وَزِدْنا مِنْه.

Allahumma barik lana feehi wazidna minh.

‘O Allah, bless it for usand give us more of it.’
