Question: Is it permissible to eat piping hot food?

Answer: Sayyidina Suhayb RA relates that Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam instructed that steaming food should only be consumed once it has reached a suitable temperature. - Kanz Vol 19 Page 188

Ummul Mu'minin, Sayyidah Juwairiyah RA. narrates that Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam disliked food that was still steaming. He only ate it after all traces of steam vanished. Jam'ul Fawa'id Vol 5 Page 7
