The religion of Islam is a complete code of life. It is not limited to physical, spiritual and emotional areas; rather it gives teaching to all aspects of life and also tells how to fulfil one purpose. What is the purpose of human life? Islam gives a very clear vision that the purpose of human life is to worship the One True God ALLAH Almighty. It is a thing to understand that all our actions, deeds no matter how grand or how small or trivial, can be easily turned into worship. All actions that we do in the daily course of our life can be raised to the level of worship simply by remembering to praise ALLAH Almighty and to seek His pleasure.

Religion Islam makes remembrance so easy by giving us proper guidelines. It teaches us in a moderate and gentle way that life is given to us to worship ALLAH Almighty, and worship is the only meaning of human life. Even eating has manners and etiquette; Food plays vital role in our daily lives. Islam also gives great importance to Cleanliness and purity and it is an important part of religion Islam.

Not only a Muslim purifies and cleans himself before doing acts of worship but he must pay great attention to the hygiene and cleanliness of his bodies and his surroundings at all times. Our bodies are gift to us and living in filthy and dirty conditions causes so many dangerous disease and ill health. Therefore, before cooking or making food it is very important to be sure that the food, the food preparing area and the hands through a person is going to touch the food must be clean.

Muslims begin every action or task by mentioning the name of ALLAH Almighty, and so eating. It is very significant to keep in mind that Islam is a moderate way of life; we must not overindulge and also should not deprive ourselves of the delicious food that ALLAH Almighty has provided for us. Eating by using the right hand is one such etiquette and it is obligatory for Muslims to eat with their right hand unless there is a genuine reason such as injury or illness.

In situations where all are eating from common platters, taking the food that is near and directly in front of you is considered good manners. Reaching over other peoples and looking for the most delicious pieces of food that you want to eat can make others uncomfortable and it gives your bad impression or makes you appear to be greedy or ungrateful.  Part of the etiquette of food eating includes eating in moderation or limit and not overindulging in eating no matter how much appetizing the food is.
