O child

‘Omar bn. Abi Salamah lived with his mother—while he was young—in the house of the prophet ﷺ.  And so, when food was brought he hurried to it, and extended his hands to eat without having “named”, and he would eat with his right once, and with his left once, and he would take food from far, and some of the times he took food from in front of other than himself, so the prophet ﷺ said to him:

“O child, name Allah, and eat with your right, and eat from that which is nearest to you.”

[sound hadith]
