No human ever filled a vessel worse than the stomach

On the authority of Al-Miqdaam ibn Maadiy-Karib who said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah saying:
“No human ever filled a vessel worse than the stomach. Sufficient for any son of Aadam are some morsels to keep his back straight. But if it must be, then one third for his food, one third for his drink and one third for his breath.” [Ahmad, At-Tirmidhee, An-Nasaa’ee, Ibn Maajah – hadeeth saheeh.]

1. Ibn Masaweh, a Muslim doctor, said after reading this hadeeth:

“If the people only used these words, they would avoid all diseases and maladies and the clinics and pharmacies would be idle.”

2. Another doctor, Al-Harith ibn Kalada said:

“That which has killed mankind is the introduction of food on top of food before it has been digested.”

3. As for spiritual benefits: humbleness of heart, strength of understanding, lessening of lower desires, lessening of personal opinions and anger, while overeating induces the opposites of all of those. Al-Hasan Al-Basree said:

“O, son of Adam, eat with one third of your stomach and drink with one third and leave one third of your stomach to breathe so that you may think.”

4. Ibn Umar: A man said to Ibn Umar:

“Shouldn’t I bring you some jawarish?” Ibn Umar said: “What is that?” He said: “Something which aids in digesting your food after you eat.” Ibn Umar said: “I have not eaten to being full for four months. That is not because I am not able to do so, but I was with a group of people who were hungry more than they were full.”

5. Not reaching your goals: Muhammad ibn Wasi said:

“Whoever eats little will understand and make others understand and will be clear and humble. Overeatingweighs a person down and keeps him from much of what he wants [to accomplish]. “

6. Al-Hasan Al-Basree:

“The test of Aadam, alayhis-salaam, was food and it is your test until Qiyama.”

And, it used to be said:

“Whoever takes control of his stomach gets control of all good deeds.”


“Wisdom does not reside in a full stomach.”

One day, Al-Hasan offered some food to his companion who said: “I have eaten until I am no longer able to eat.” To which Al-Hasan said:

“SubhaanAllaah! Does a Muslim eat until he is no longer able to eat?”

7. Allaah grants this world to those whom He loves and those He does not love but only grants hunger to those whom he loves.
8. Ash-Shaafi’ee said:

“I have not filled myself in sixteen years because filling oneself makes the body heavy, removes clear understanding, induces sleep and makes one weak for worship.”

9. In Bukhaaree and Muslim:

“The believer eats with one stomach while the kafir eats with seven stomachs.”

Meaning: The believer eats with the manners of Islam and in moderation, while the kafir eats based on desires and gluttony and so he eats with seven stomachs.
10. Also:

“Food for one is enough for two and food for two is enough for three and food for three is enough for four.”

11. Also: From Aa’ishah:

“The family of Muhammad (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) never filled themselves with wheat bread three days in a row from the time he came to Madeenah until he passed away.”

12. A Muslim should not merely follow his appetites. Allaah said:

“Then, they were followed by generations who neglected the prayer and followed their appetites. They will encounter a pit of fire except for those who repent…” [Maryam 59-60]

13. The best generations did not:

“The best generation is my generation, followed by the one after them then the one after them. Then will come a people who bear witness but are not asked to bear witness, who swear oaths but do not fulfill them and fatness will appear among them.” [Bukhaaree and Muslim]

14. From Abee Barza that the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) said:

“My greatest fear for you is the appetites of transgression with regard to your stomachs and your privates and the inclinations which lead astray.” [Ahmad and others and its narrators are people of saheeh]

    Thanks for any other informative site. Where else could I
    am getting that kind of information written in such a perfect method?
    I’ve a undertaking that I’m just now operating on, and I’ve been on the glance out for such info.

    I have been browsing on-line more than three hours as of late, yet I never
    found any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is pretty worth sufficient for me. In my view, if
    all site owners and bloggers made good content material
    as you probably did, the internet will be much more helpful than ever before.

    Working all of these muscle fibers will lead to larger and
    more defined shoulders. Place your hands resolutely on the ground next
    to you. This is one of the major advantages that manufacturers target when
    marketing adjustable dumbbells to home consumers.

    Fantastic blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring
    writers? I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you propose starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused .. Any ideas? Thanks!

    I can’t overstate how critical it is to maintain proper tire pressure for your car. Since on his days off we’re blowing
    out sprinkler systems for the winter (I am master of the sprinkler clocks, and
    can program nearly any style of clock available- yay me), we
    have access to a giant, powerful air compressor that he
    hitches onto the back of his POS pickup while we drive around town.
    Most manufacturers of concrete sleepers purchase stone chips
    from stone crushers and manufacture concrete sleepers.

    Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the pictures on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s
    the blog. Any responses would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi, I am new to running a blog and websites in general and was
    wondering how you got the “www” included in your
    domain name? I see your domain, “” has the www and
    my domain looks like, “”. Do you know just how I can alter this?
    I’m using WordPress platform. Thank you very much

    The fast food business is a fast growing and very challenging means
    of entering the market. There are two ways to go about this, firstly, change your diet and secondly use some natural products
    that help adjust your sugar levels without the side effects.
    Enjoying success with continuous refinement of
    the business strategy.

    This is because the shaver is not quite as sophisticated, since the skin of the leg is much tougher, and the leg itself has fewer curves than
    the face. They guarantee an instant cut to the hair
    and never give chance of any pulling or tugging.
    Other men prefer the convenience and power you get with an electric shaver.

    I was recommended this website by my cousin. I’m not sure
    whether this post is written by him as no one else know such detailed
    about my trouble. You’re incredible! Thanks!
