Riyad as-Saliheen 749

Ka'b bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
I saw Messenger of Allah ﷺ eating with three fingers (i.e., the thumb, the index finger and the middle finger) and licking them after having finished the food.


وعن كعب بن مالك رضى الله عنه قال: رأيت رسول الله ﷺ يأكل بثلاث أصابع ، فإذا فرغ لعقها.
