Control over his appetites

The Prophet said, “No human ever filled a vessel worse than the stomach. Sufficient for any son of Adam are some morsels to keep his back straight. But if it must be, then one third for his food, one third for his drink and one third for his breath." (Imam Tirmidhi, Zuhd, 47).

It was recorded that the Prophet never ate until he was completely full. He also endured great hunger during his life time. Once for example, two whole months passed in which he subsisted only on only water and dates. When he was approached by his companions complaining of hunger they found that he (peace be upon him) had tied two stones to his stomach to ease the pangs of hunger.

How often do we fill our stomachs to capacity while eating? How often do we find it hard to pray and remain mindful of Allah because our stomachs are stuffed? Let us try to control our appetites by eating moderately and restraining ourselves before we reach satiety.
