“A man came to Ibn ’Umar and said, ‘Shall I not make some ‘Jawaarshan’ for you?’

So Ibn ’Umar said, ‘And what is, ‘Jawaarshan?’

He said, ‘Something you eat which will make you feel better if you overstuff yourself with food.’

So Ibn ’Umar said, ‘I’ve not eaten my fill for four months—and that isn’t because I don’t have it, but it’s because I met a people who would go hungry one time and satisfy their appetite the next.’”

In another narration, Ibn ’Umar said, “I’ve not eaten my fill since I became a Muslim.”

Al-Joo’, p. 61.
