Ever my Maktab days, i have learnt the Dua before eating and after as follows:
Dua before eating : bismillahi wa'alaa barakatillah (key word being wa'alaa)
Dua after eating : alhamdulillahi llathi ataamana wasaqaana wajalanaa minal muslimeen. ( key word being minal)
Recently, a group of Alims have published a book and they have taken the word 'alaa' out of the Dua before eating and the word 'minal' out of the Dua after eating.
They say that these words are not found in the Ahadeeth. Can anybody shed light on this?
