In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
In the name of the compassionate and beneficent God,
With Allah’s name and upon the blessings granted by Allah do we eat.
(Muslim blessing before eating)
He is God! Thou seest us, O my God, gathered around this table, praising Thy bounty, with our gaze set upon Thy Kingdom. O Lord! Send down upon us Thy heavenly food and confer upon us Thy blessing. Thou art verily the Bestower, the Merciful, the Compassionate.
(Bahá’í food blessing by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá)
