Assalamu Alaikum Mufti Saab. I have developed the habit of reciting Basmalah before every mouthful of food (bcz I am very thankful for it from Allah) and I am very comfortable with it……..my question is that is it considered as extremity or any form of bid'ah?


Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)

It will be permissible. However, you should not consider it a must or an essential part of Deen.

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, ‘Whoever innovates anything in Deen will surely be rejected.’ (Mishkaat)

And Only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
