Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) prohibited us blowing in the drinking water. A man said: "O Messenger of Allah! Sometimes I see some litter floating about on the surface. What should I do then?'' He (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) replied, "Pour them out.'' Then the man said: "My thirst is not quenched with one draught.'' Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said, "Then put away the cup from your mouth (in between three gulps), and take breath.'' [At-Tirmidhi]

Commentary:  If one sees straw or something like that in the water-vessel, he should not blow in the water. Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) has forbidden it. Instead, some of the water or all the water should be poured out. Also, if his thirst is not quenched in a single breath, one should remove the vessel from his mouth. After taking breath, he should again drink water. To drink water in three breaths is preferable. However, in case of hot tea or milk, sipping is permissible, no matter if sips are in plenty.

Unbreakable Combs

The salesman was demonstrating unbreakable combs in the department store. He was impressing the people who stopped by to look by putting the comb through all sorts of torture and stress.

Finally to impress even the skeptics in the crowd, he bent the comb completely in half, and it snapped with a loud crack. Without missing a beat, he bravely held up both halves of the 'unbreakable' comb for everyone to see and said,

"And this, ladies and gentlemen, is what an unbreakable comb looks like on the inside..."
