Assalamu-alaikum my dear brothers, sisters and respected elders in Islam.
Since from when I can remember I have always known to eat with my right hand. I can only think of two reasons for this;
1) The first being that prophet Muhammad (PBUH) used his right hand to eat and
2) The second being that I always been taught to clean myself with my left hand.
But the discussion I open up to the forum is whether the prophet used his right hand to eat because Right has preference or whether he used the hand that came naturally to him (which happened to be his right!). I ask to know if those who are left-handed can simply eat with their Left and clean with their Right. Can this not be the case?
