“’Umar [ibn al-Khattaab رضي الله عنه] said, “O People! Beware of gluttony, for it will cause you to become lazy in performing the prayers, damage your bodies, and leave you ill. And verily—Allaah تبارك وتعالى hates the fat scholar. Instead be moderate in your food, for that is closer to remedying [yourselves], and further from waste, and makes you firmer in worshipping Allaah. And a servant won’t be destroyed until he gives precedence to his desires over his religion.’”
Al-Joo’, p. 72.
