The Prophet’s (SAWS) Diet.

Subhannallah, I received a really good email and I wanted to share the ilm (knowledge), insha’Allah.

And since we are on the subject of food, I found these quotes very useful as I strive to eat for my health and not for my desires, insha’Allah.

  • 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.”
