This questioner says: O virtuous Shaykh, l have heard that the Prophet, may the praise of Allah and peace be upon him, commanded that water should be drunk in one go. Is this correct?

Shaykh Fawzan:

This is not correct. Rather the Prophet, may the praise of I Allah and peace be upon him, prohibited drinking water in one go. This is because it is in imitation to camels. The Prophet, may the praise of Allah and peace be upon him, instructed us to drink with three breaths. To drink with three breaths. Yes.
