Eating and Drinking (205)
It is reported by way of Wahshiy that the companions of the Messenger of Allah said: O Messenger of Allah! We eat; however we do not get full. He said: Perhaps you eat separately? They said: Yes. He said: Then join together upon your food, and invoke he name of Allah: blessing would be bestowed in it for you.

Reported by Abu Dawood, and Ibn Mãjah. Al-Albãni said that Ibn Hiban said it was sound. Al-Albãni said, in Saheeh al-jãmih al-sagheer wa ziyãdatu (#142) that it was comely. He included this hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #146.
