    Abu Huraira said:

    He massaged his tongue and moistened it until he calmed down.

    Source: al-Mu’jam al-Kabīr 2588, Grade: Hasan

    This tradition was declared reliable by Al-Haythami in Majma’ al-Zawā’id 9/183 and by Ash-Shawkani in Darr al-Saḥābah 242.

This was something practical and necessary in the tough climate in which they lived.”( Source quoted above post)
