To the best of my knowledge, although it is recommended to eat by the right hand, instead of left hand (and actually it is said that it is Makruh to eat by the left hand), but it doesn’t mean that it is a haram act to do so. Consequently there is no necessity for left-handed people to change their habit about that. Of course, as a related helpful point, ...

There is more than one correct way of disposing writings which are considered holy.

Akhlaq is more emotional, it’s similar to the word morals, you know the difference between right and wrong, or you feel for others etc... Adab is more of an action and how people perceive you as having good morals, it is related to etiquette, and behavior, rather than an emotional act.

There is nothing in the sunnah that proves that talking while eating is Haram or anything else.

Some scholars feel that purifying ones own wealth by donating such money directly to the masjid is a bad idea, since the masjid is a house of God and should be built and maintained using only pure funds.
