Sahih Muslim 2020c
Salim, on the authority of his father, reported Messenger of Allah ﷺ as saying: None of you should eat with his left hand and drink with that (left hand), for the Satan eats with left hand and drinks with that (hand). Nafi' has made this addition in that:" Do not take up anything with that (left hand) and do not give anything with that" ;
and in the narration transmitted on the authority of Abu Tahir there is a slight variation of wording.
وَحَدَّثَنِي أَبُو الطَّاهِرِ، وَحَرْمَلَةُ، - قَالَ أَبُو الطَّاهِرِ أَخْبَرَنَا وَقَالَ، حَرْمَلَةُ حَدَّثَنَا
- عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ وَهْبٍ، حَدَّثَنِي عُمَرُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ، حَدَّثَنِي الْقَاسِمُ بْنُ عُبَيْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ،
عُمَرَ حَدَّثَهُ عَنْ سَالِمٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏"‏ لاَ يَأْكُلَنَّ أَحَدٌ
مِنْكُمْ بِشِمَالِهِ وَلاَ يَشْرَبَنَّ بِهَا فَإِنَّ الشَّيْطَانَ يَأْكُلُ بِشِمَالِهِ وَيَشْرَبُ بِهَا ‏"‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ وَكَانَ نَافِعٌ
يَزِيدُ فِيهَا ‏"‏ وَلاَ يَأْخُذُ بِهَا وَلاَ يُعْطِي بِهَا ‏"‏ ‏.‏ وَفِي رِوَايَةِ أَبِي الطَّاهِرِ ‏"‏ لاَ يَأْكُلَنَّ أَحَدُكُمْ
‏"‏ ‏.‏
