I have been feeling particularly crappy lately and at first I was blaming Cowife drama but I can confess now that its not. My salat is dragging and I have been eating horribly! And forget about exercise…
Ughhhhh…. I need to do something..being a newly wed doesn’t help either… No excuses. I need to eat clean and be more physically active. Besides, it’s Sunnah!
The Messenger of Allah peace and blessings be upon him used to eat enough to keep him going, but no so much as to make him fat. Ibn ’Umar related that the Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “The believer eats in one stomach whilst the disbeliever eats in seven.”Related by al-Bukhaaree (no. 5081) and Muslim (no. 2060).
He taught his Ummah something to protect them from diseases caused by eating and drinking. He said, “The son of Adam does not fill any vessel worse than his stomach. It is sufficient for the son of Aadam to eat a few mouthfuls, to keep him going. If he must do that (fill his stomach), then let him fill one third with food, one third with drink and one third with air.” Saheeh: Related by at-Tirmidhee (no. 1381)and Ibn Maajah (no. 3349). It was authenticated by Shaykh Muhammad Naasirud-Deen al-Albaanee in Silsilatul-Ahaadeethus-Saheehah (no. 2265).
If I could just follow that, I’d be good 🙂
I cannot imagine working out in hijab lol so I’m going to come up with some @ home training program I won’t get bored of. Please feel free to share any work out/healthy eating tips! I’ll post anything interesting I find.
Ya Allah, please make us amongst those that can affirm they took care of the body you gave us when we are questioned about it on the day of judgement. Ameen!
