عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ النَّوْفَلِيِّ عَنِ السَّكُونِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) الطَّعَامُ إِذَا جَمَعَ أَرْبَعَ خِصَالٍ فَقَدْ تَمَّ إِذَا كَانَ مِنْ حَلَالٍ وَ كَثُرَتِ الْأَيْدِي وَ سُمِّيَ فِي أَوَّلِهِ وَ حُمِدَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ فِي آخِرِهِ.


2. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from al-Nawfaliy from al-Sakuniy who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has stated this Hadith. ‘The Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, has said, ‘A food with four characteristics is complete, that it is lawful, numerousness of hands on it, mention of the name of Allah on it, and praise of Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, at its end.’”
