(2) And take the water in three draughts one after other, and after everydraught  separate the container from the mouth,"

and further said that, " This way it is more satisfying and healthy." (Bukhari).

He also said, "Do not drink water direct from the taps of the water-containers (to acoid centipede and germs), not drink while standing.

To drink water from gold and silver containers is tantamount to sipping hell fire." The prophe also asked us not to breathe in the water nor to drink at one draught, not drink form crevices in the containers The Prophet used to take waterwhile sitting and by right hand , but allowed to take water by left hand if right be engaged in eating or any other work.
