Answered by: Maulana Syed Johir Miah
Some people say that it is unhealthy to drink water right after eating. Are there any narrations regarding when to drink and when not to?
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Islamically, it is not disliked to drink water before or after food, since there is nothing established in that from Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم).
Hence, a person can drink water; before, during or after the course of food.
Only Allah knows best.
