Invocations before eating

When anyone of you begins eating, say:

178. Bismillaah.

With the Name of Allah.

And if you forget then, when you remember, say:

Bismillaahifee 'awwalihi wa 'aakhirihi.

With the Name of Allah, in the beginning and in the end.

Reference: Abu Dawud 3/347, At-Tirmithi 4/288. See Al- Albani's Sahih At-Tirmithi 2/167.

Whomever Allah has given food, should say:

179. Allaahumma baarik lanaafeehi wa 'at'imnaa khayranminhu.

O Allah, bless us in it and provide us with better than it.

Whomever Allah has given milk to drink, should say :

Allaahumma baarik lanaa feehi wa zidnaa minhu.

O Allah , bless us in it and give us more of it.

Reference: At-Tirmithi 5/506. See also Al-Albani, Sahih At-Tirmithi 3/158.
