“In explaining the hadith of Abu Hurairah about, ‘Whoever kills himself …,’* Ibn Hubairah said, ‘Included in that meaning are foods whose overwhelming characteristic is that they are harmful; eating one’s fill excessively; eating food on top of food; and obeying one’s excessive desire for food [gluttony] …’”

Al-Aadaab ash-Shar’iyah wal-Manh al-Mar’iyah, vol. 3, p. 185.

* The full text of the hadith is, “Whoever kills himself with (an instrument of) iron will come on the Day Of Judgment with his iron in his hand, to continually stab himself in his stomach with it, in the fire of Jahannam, dwelling in that state eternally. And whoever kills himself with poison, then his poison will be in his hand, to continually take it in the Fire of Jahannam, dwelling in that state eternally.” [Bukhaari]
