Excessive Eating

July 21, 2023

Miqdam bin Madikarib (RA) said:

“I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say: ‘A human being fills no worse vessel than his stomach. It is sufficient for a human being to eat a few mouthfuls to keep his spine straight. But if he must (fill it), then one-third of food, one third for drink, and one third for air.’”

(Sunan Ibn Majah 3349, Book 29, Hadith 99)
