Maalik ibn Deenaar said, “Your stomach is but a dog. Throw that dog a scrap or the top part of some guava [not even a whole one] to keep it at bay, and don’t make your stomachs containers for the devil, letting Iblees collect in it whatever he wants.”
Al-Joo’ [Hunger], p. 64.
Abu ’Ubaidah al-Khawwaas said, “The worst people are the ones who enter the Fire due to someone else. Your stomach is your dog, keep it away with a bite of food.”
Al-Joo’ [Hunger], p. 63.
