Cleaning The Plate After Eating

Question: Why are we required to clean our plates after eating?

Answer: Sayyiduna Jabir RA. narrates that Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam commanded that the fingers should be licked and the utensil should be cleaned [i.e. before washing it]. Expounding the benefit of this, Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said, "As it is unknown which particle of food contains the Barakah (blessings)." [Targhib Vol 3, Page 146]

Sayyiduna Nubaysha RA. narrates that Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said: " If a person eats from a plate and cleans it, the plate will supplicate to Allah Ta'ala for his forgiveness." [Sunan Ibn Majah Vol 2: Page 235]
