One intestine or more………. (to be or not to be….a glutton)

We love food. Any gathering, any conversation, any culture revolves around food. Healthy, unhealthy, fat free, fat filled, trans fat, gluten free, sugar free, taste free, organic, the lists go on and on.

For those of you who used to watch ALF, the tv show featuring the burping ET who had 8 stomachs, you can identify with the following hadiths sent to me:

“A man who burped in the presence of the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) and he said

‘Keep your burps away from us, for the one who eats his fill the most

in this world will be hungry for the longest time on the day of resurrection

.'” Abu Juhafah

The Prophet (saws) said:

“A believer eats in one intestine, and a disbeliever or a hypocrite eats in seven intestines”.



The Prophet (saws) also said:

“The son of Adam does not fill any vessel worse than his stomach. It is sufficient for the son of Adam to eat a few morsels to keep him alive. If he must fill it, then one-third for his food, one-third for his drink, and one-third for air.”

al-Tirmidhi saheen.

I aim to do better. And with that in mind, I share some photos of delectable delights so that you can digest holographically rather than physically!
