Islam: Respect of Food.

Jabir reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “If one of you drops a morsel, he should pick it up and wipe off any dirt on it and eat it ……He should not wipe his hand with a cloth until he has licked his fingers. He does not know in what part of the food the blessing lies.” [Muslim]

An alim commented that if this mush respect is given to  food, where the Prophet Sallalahu alaihi wasalam taught us to pick up a dropped morsel of food, to wipe it clean and then to eat it then how much respect should we be giving to people?
