A man burped in the presence of the Prophet Muhammad (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) and he was pleased that his guest was pleased with tthe meal that was prepared (remembering Allah, may He be exalted) after burping.

At-Tirmidhi (2478) narrated – and classed the report as hasan – that Ibn ‘Umar said: A man burped in the presence of the Prophet Muhammad (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) and he said: “may Allah be pleased with you because you find my food satisfactory, and know that you shall eat of the meat in Jannah (*paradise) where the milk shall taste sweet, and you shall eat of the flesh from every cattle.” It was also classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh at-Tirmidhi.

Ibn Muflih said:

The one who burps does not have to respond with anything. So if he says, “Al-hamdu Lillah,” it may be said to him: “Hanee’an maree’an (May the food be delightful and pleasant for you)” or “Hanna’aka Allahu wa amraak (May Allah cause you to have the delight and pleasure of the food).” This was stated in ar-Ri‘aayah al-Kubra and by Ibn Tameem, and also by Ibn ‘Aqeel. And he said: We do not know of any Sunnah concerning that; rather it is a made-up custom.
