Imam Al-Nawawi’s Riyad-us-Saliheen
Chapter 112
Undesirability of Drinking directly from the mouth of a Water-Skin

762. Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) forbade turning the water-skin upside down and drinking directly from its mouth.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

763. Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) prohibited drinking directly out of the mouth of a water-skin.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

764. Umm Thabit Kabshah (May Allah be pleased with her), daughter of Thabit (May Allah be pleased with him) and the sister of Hassan bin Thabit, the Prophet’s poet) reported: Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) visited me and drank some water from a hanging water-skin while he was in a standing posture. So, I stood up and cut off the mouth (of that water-skin). An-Nawawi said that the reason why she did this was to keep to receive benediction that part of the water-skin which the lips of Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) touched.
[At-Tirmidhi].
