Eating and Drinking (203)
The Messenger of Allah said: When one of you eats let him invoke the name of Allah the Exalted at the start, but if he forgets to mention the name of Allah the Exalted at the start, then let him say: Bismillãh, 'awwalahu wa'ãkhirahu (222)

(222) In the name of Allah, start of it and end of it.
