HOW TO SIT WHEN EATING -SHAIKH AL-ALBANI
Question: Is there a hadith about the way to sit when eating food?
Answer: “There is. It is to sit erect upon the heels or to raise one foot and lay the other foot flat [and sit on it] taken from his statement sallahu alayhi wa salam:
إنما أنا عبد أكل كما يأكل العبد وأجلس كما يجلس العبد
Verily I am a servant. I eat like how a servant eats and I sit like how a servant sits”
