Jumaah #1

Assalam alaikoum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuh,

“Man fills no vessel worse than his stomach. It is sufficient for the son of Adam to have a few mouthfuls to keep his back straight. If he has to fill his stomach, then let him leave one-third for food, one-third for drink and one-third for air.” (Reported by al-Tirmidhi and Ibn Maajah. Classed as Saheeh by al Albaani – rahimahullah)

  1. Aaaah! The hadith that always makes me feel guilty when I pig out! I have GOT to remember this more often when I become mesmerized by yummy chocolate cakes! 😦

    • Lol lol … do you bake the cakes or buy them? Don’t worry, this hadith is actually a reminder for ME since I’m such a foodie! Junk food is relatively cheap here so you can only imagine how tempted I get each time I buy my groceries! 😛

      • Sometimes I bake, but I only use cake mixes, Betty Crocker my favorite! Not much of a cook you know? 😛

        Lol, my sympathies! The candy at the checkout counters always stares at me too! Always! 😛

      • That’s still something sis! 🙂 Never mind, I’m sure you’ll progress to making your own cakes instead of pre-mixed once you get the hang of it!

        Hahahaha, are you sure you’re not the one staring at the candies 😉 I can stand at the shelf for 10 mins, sometimes walk back and forth contemplating whether I should grab the chocolate. How horrid is it needing to think even when grocery shopping! haha..
