HADITH (Traditions of the Prophet Muhammad Peace be Upon Him)

Sayyadina Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) commanded the licking of the fingers and the cleaning of the dish, saying, "You do not know in which portion the blessing lies.'' [Muslim]

Commentary: This Hadith underlines the wisdom behind licking the fingers and the vessel. The eater never knows whether a blessing underlies what has been eaten by him, or the particles sticking to his fingers and vessels contain it. Those particles, therefore, should not be wasted; they should be made part of food by being licked. They may be invested with a blessing and proved more useful for the eater's health and strength. Moreover, by this way he escapes disregarding the Bounty of Allah.
