Christian missionaries, atheists and Islamophobes in general have been for a long time mocking and ridiculing anything and everything for the sake of ridiculing and mocking, despite endless logical, theological, and even Scientific evidence in the Glorious Holy Quran and the authentic statements (known by Hadith) of Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him.
Little they know those ignorants that there is a recently discovered scientific rule named the five seconds’ rule. Which indicates that Food that is picked up from the floor a few seconds after it drops is less likely to contain harmful bacteria, according to a recent study.
The research, led by Professor Anthony Hilton, examined the transfer of common bacteria Escherichia coli (E. coli) from a range of floor surfaces onto food. Contact was made from between three and 30 seconds.
The study found the amount of time the food remained on the floor affected how much bacteria had been transferred.
Carpeted surfaces were least likely to transfer bacteria, while laminate or tiled surfaces were the worst culprits, exchanging the most bacteria when in contact with moist food for more than five seconds.
The question that comes to mind now is:
How did Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him knew that despite he was unlettered that did not read or write. And that this five second rule was never known before?
Let us read the authentic statement of Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him as shown below.
Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
When the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) finished eating his food, he would lick his three fingers (i.e., the forefinger, the middle finger, and the thumb). He (ﷺ) said, “If anyone of you drops a morsel, he should remove anything harmful from it and then eat it. He should not leave it for Shaitan.” He commanded us to clean out the dish saying, “You do not know in what portion of your food the blessing lies.
