Our Salaf: Advise about Food–Maalik Bin Deenaar And Sufyaan Ath-Thawree

Maalik Bin Deenaar (rahimahullaah) said:

”It is not befitting the believer than his greatest concern is his stomach (i.e. filling his stomach with food) and that his desires should overcome him.” [Jaami-ul Uloom Wal-Hikam: page:443]

Uthmaan Bin Zaa-idah (rahimahullaah) said:

Sufyaan Ath-thawree wrote to me (saying): ”If you want your body to be healthy and your sleep to be less, then have little food.” [Jaami-ul Uloom Wal-Hikam: Page:444] 

And Allaah knows best
