What were the diet and eating habits of the Prophet sallallahu It was

00:00:08--> 00:00:49

really simple principles that I'll share with you less is more sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The prophet SAW Selim wasn't a person who would gorge, it wasn't a person who would chug. He was a person who would sip who was a person who taught us to breathe in between our sips of water, that when we ate that we would eat a third, a third and a third, a third for food, a third for our drink, and a third for our air and breathing. The profits of the law. What he was sending them was a person who taught us that food is one of the primary reasons for illness, if we eat too much of it, or if we eat the wrong the wrong types. The prophets I sell him was a very organic eater, subtle Allahu

00:00:49--> 00:01:32

alayhi wa sallam, he ate dates. He drank water, he drank fresh milk, he was a person who would enjoy the luxuries of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He loved a 30, which he was a meat filled dish on buttered bread with broth. He used to love the excessive amount of soup. Some of his favorite vegetables were things like pumpkin, and cucumber. So I sent him a hadith that mentioned watermelon. He was a person who was a healthy eater he never ate alone. And that's a really important thing. He was very social and his eating, there's no idea where you ever hear that at any time he ever had a meal that wasn't shared with others. He ate a lot. He was setting him with his hands not just because there weren't

00:01:32--> 00:02:09

utensils, there were Hadith where he ate with utensils, but because his hands it limited the kind of quality he taught us not to blow on our food not to be so greedy that we can't wait until it cools down a little bit. So I sent him he taught us that the person who serves others should be the last to eat. And therefore it was an honor to make sure that everyone was well fed and watered before a person considered their own needs. There were times where the prophets lie Selim taught us to restrict food, and he would fast every Monday and Thursday, the 13th 14th and 15th of every lunar calendar and of course, the month of Ramadan, and other special days like I showed up in the month

00:02:09--> 00:02:50

of Muharram. You know, the holistic approach of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is really what is key. I'll give you three important verses that are of benefit that you can see reflected in the level of the prophets Isilon. Allah says kulu or shabu will lead to sleep or eat and drink but don't be excessive. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, which is the lady Bursa one hour Manisha? I've made the night a place of repose and rest, and your daytime a place of activity, and therefore eating at night wasn't in the habit of the Prophet Mohammed Sai Selim. That was something from the active part of our day. And third, and most importantly, Allah subhanaw taala says, which I mean

00:02:50--> 00:03:19

Allah equally shy in high I've created out of water every living thing, you and I, we need to drink much more water, the prophets I send them in the authentic hadith. He said through mellitus alone Naomi the nanny name one day you'll be questioned about the excessive joys of life the boundaries of life, and he said shuttle betta Matt embeded Fiona and how one of those joys that he relishes I sell him is a drink of cold water on a hot day Salalah
