We do not know in which portion of food the blessing lies

Jabir (Radhiallahu anhu) reported:

Messenger of Allah (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) commanded the licking of fingers and the gleaning of the dish, saying, “You do not know in which portion the blessing lies.”

[Muslim]

Commentary:
This Hadith underlines the wisdom behind licking the fingers and the vessel. The eater never knows whether a blessing underlies what has been eaten by him, or the particles sticking to his fingers and vessels contain it. Those particles, therefore, should not be wasted; they should be made part of food by being licked. They may be invested with a blessing and proved more useful for the eater’s health and strength. Moreover, by this way he escapes disregarding the Bounty of Allah.
