interesting relationship us human beings have with food.
And because it's such an essential relationship, Allah, Allah and Talimena Allah did not leave this part out. But rather Allah Subhana Allah gives us guidance because the Quran is concerned with what believers put in their bodies.
Especially seeing that where we are and when we are living. Huge problem.
The CDC just published a report Center for Disease Control and they talking about it was this last September they were talking about food, nutrition, health, and specifically they were talking about obesity in America
and they conclude
that one out of every five people in the US they have a problem with weight.
When like lettuce
Wallahi I do not wish to upset anybody.
And the point of this whole book is not to fat shame people.
Of course when Heather Callum wala Hema, who ill Yanni insomnia Tina Marie says how to
the obvious way you but rather this is a reminder for all of us. And please remember when we speak about this issue, please keep in mind that people who happen to be big, it's multi factors. I want my
and Metallica to some they are the way they are because of issues of genetics. I will Mira Sofia, the CDC also spoke about poverty as a factor by lynfit. Who wanted in fact, who are Amylin her the IOM, and they spoke about how poor people who have no good access to good health care system, or sometimes they don't even have access to good, healthy food simply because of where they live, or their ability to go and get good food said that they are at a bigger risk of falling into this or falling into this trap.
And so on. But what we're concerned about here is the way that sometimes we believers don't take good care of our health.
You're all gonna be useful Allahu alayhi wa sallam lent Azula Adam Abdeen hardtops. Alana Roper said that on the Day of Judgment, the prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that nobody's feet are going to move from one place accountability you will be held there for accountability, and you will not leave your destination. And may Allah Subhana Allah make our destination a good destination neuropil alameen the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said you will be asked and one of the questions that you will be asked why and Jay said he femur a bla
and then Allah who will ask this individual that will be us. My brothers, my sisters, Allah will ask each and every one of us What have you done with your body?
What have you done with your body? Fee man, a Bla? How did you wear it out?
What do you have the people who used it? Or were you of the people who abused it?
These are serious questions, with serious consequences in this life, as well as in the hereafter.
Because having a healthy body, we are taught is one of the most the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala ask anybody who's just been recently diagnosed with a serious illness. Ask them they'll tell you man I will give up anything and everything. If I can just get my health back. Well Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam you're cool, man us Baja, cough and fever Danny. Doesn't the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tell us that whosoever wakes up in the morning, and amongst the different blessings the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions that those who wake up and they have a healthy body more often free, but then he
but he helped me but these are not accidents. A person does not have a healthy body simply because they were born healthy. They decided to be healthy, because they have taken an active role in making sure that their bodies are healthy. Why? Because they're aware that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught were unjust had he female Allah, you will be asked about your body. How did you wait it out?
And the fact that we are most concerned about is football
or a demon Messiah, it will concern men for Dooley waffled will kill him. You know, Muslim scholars thought in the past, that most of our problems or result are the result of being excessive. They say that we excessively eat and we excessively talk
excessive talking and excessive eating, excessive talking, sometimes ruins our social relationships.
You're excessively talk, you want to talk and you want to make fun and you want to make a joke and it may be entertaining, but it also puts you at risk. So if it does not need to be said Don't say it, you know they taught and they say that before you utter any word, make sure that you answer four questions. Is it true? Is it important is it kind is now the time for it? And if you answer any of these questions, no, then be quiet.
Otherwise you are talking excessively
and then they say the second problem. So this ruins our social relationships excessively talking, and then they say that the other problem ruins our well being physical well being. What happens for though look the arm eating excessively. You don't Subhan Allah will have no authority in sha Allah. You can little insulin yet very ill Haiwan either Shabbat layer
speak about how human beings we eat despite the fact that we are fooled. We would be eating, especially you know, you go to an all you can eat buffet and you start eating and then you remember that man just paid $50 And I'm not going to stop. Now unbuckle and button. Because you know, you want to make sure that you eat more you eat $50 worth of food. So you end up eating beyond your phone, even though animals do not eat beyond their phone once they're on their phone.
So we're talking about those of us who are not in a good shape, not because of genetics, not because of diseases, not because of medications that they're taking, but because of a sense of carelessness.
From a believer, that is unacceptable. The colon W sallallahu alayhi wasallam Marilla Abner
Shara Minh Buckley, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam speaks about V warst vessel that a human being fails is his own stomach.
encounter when I would differ island, but then if a man and a woman they must do so then let it be in such a way that 1/3 of it is for his eating 1/3 is for drinking 1/3 is for people to breathe
and nurse your time with Lucy Shara Bucha little miracle vaccines he left us yesterday it will Hadith most people they focus on the last part of the Hadith on how beautifully the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke about you know you should divide it into three thirds 1/3 is for your food. 1/3 is for drinking. One for 1/3 is for you breathing. But then they forget the very beginning statement that the prophets of Allah Allah was elimate na mela
and Sharon min bottlehead the worst vessel to fill is your stomach. And that just tells you what is going on there. And that is why people who have learned these teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as YBNL month that he said, Nah, no
learner, Hector and a juror were either Acana lunchbag. He said we the followers of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam happened to be a people that we only eat when we are hungry. And even then when we eat, we never eat our full.
Now that is a beautiful lifestyle.
See what they're finding now is we consume a lot of calories, but very little nutrition. We go to work and sit on our desks. We come home to sit on our couches.
We use food, drugs, alcohol, to numb our emotions.
We're not comfortable being bored.
And the problem is when you use food, alcohol and drugs to numb your emotions, your emotions temporarily go away. But when they come back, they come back with more intensity.
They're talking about how much sugar we are consuming. We don't even eat real food. We don't even eat real food. Why is it that when we go to the market, there is a section that says organic food wholesome food shouldn't the entire store be organic and wholesome food?
processed food comparing people how in the early 1900s How much sugar they consumed and what they are consuming nowadays. So much so in some of these reports, I read that the average person in the state consumes up to 57 pounds of sugar every single year.
We eat a lot man.
We eat too much.
So much so that somebody suggested and once asked people said that, would you say that you eat a chicken a month like on your own? Would you say that you eat a chicken a month between chicken biryani, chicken tikka chicken sandwich chicken soup chicken salad? Would you say that you eat about a chicken a month on your own? Most people say yeah, I probably do eat a chicken a month on my own. So by the time you reach the age of 70 You would have consumed over 800 chickens on your own.
An African would be lucky if they ate 40 chickens in their entire lifetime.
We eat too much. We eat because we want to numb our emotions. We eat because we're bored
Watch children as they watching TV. What do they want to do while watching TV? They want to be snuck in here and there and mom is getting them stuff here and there and dad is ordering stuff here and there we eat even though we're not hungry.
The under metaphorical armor of Bina you have any Adam who those in
All Children of Adam beautify yourself for every act of worship,
beautify yourself for every act of worship, beautify yourself or
eat and drink freely.
What is the condition 1234
Do not do so. Excessively in the hula your hebbal was revealed. Allah does not love people who do things in Access. Allah does not or people who do things excessively and Allah does not love people who are wasteful. When you're called on abuse, Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam were in the bed Anika alayka Huck,
in the Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was informed about Salmaan or the Buddha was known, you know, salon visits with, you know, he visits with his family and you know, he saw that the household was not looking all that great. So he asked Ahmed Rita is what's going on since like nobody really taken care of things. And she said, that Salman eat the man is just not interested in anything. He just wants to fast all day he wants to eat, he wants to pray all night. So Salman comes and spends the night with a Buddha
for karma, a Buddha lucidly the Allahu Salman Nam to go to sleep. Then he wakes up again and said man says continue sleeping. And then towards the last third of the night, he said, now we can pray. They wake up in the morning he prepares breakfast before call caller in this line on a call. And you've got to eat with me now. And then they go and they talk to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says southern man, he said whatever Salman has commanded you off is good for in nearly Lika Lake we're in nearly Rebecca we're in early bird Annika lake for the cooler we happened her.
At that point, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to Salman, he said was a man. He said to Abdullah he said Your Lord has rights upon you. Your family has rights upon you. Your own body has rights upon you the articles you have been so give each of these their due rights give them their due rights.
That is why when they speak about a believers you know personal infrastructure, talking about the physical well being the mental well being and the emotional well being for me, no. Are we going to rebate any motor work they don't use any rock your country you can be a believer, they say he's got a strong body, sharp mind and a soft heart. You do this as a believer, it becomes a it becomes a lifestyle. That becomes a beautiful lifestyle.
Talking about in the Quran how Allah subhanaw taala tells us
Are you bad?
Eat things that are halal and
the two conditions to consume food in in our deen. Number one, the food that you consume must be halal. Meaning that it must be food that is lawful that Allah subhanaw taala has approved off, you know, certain types of food believers don't take. We don't drink hamdullah you know, we don't do drugs, any mood altering agent we stay away from we don't smoke. We don't do these things. You know, certain types of animals, certain types of slaughtering, we avoid all these things. They're not they're not halal. They are intrinsically bad. We don't touch them.
And then the next condition the Quran tells us that whatever that you consume, it's not that just halal, but it must also be a you must be wholesome. It must be good. It must be of benefit to you. See, something may be halal, but not a
if you're diabetic sugar is halal, but for you, it's not a you if you're diabetic.
shouldn't get there. If you are at risk of becoming diabetic, then sugar is not by Yep. It's not good for you. Yes, it may be halal, but it is not by Yep.
So what does the Quran invite believers to do? You've got to take care of your body. Sometimes and wallah, I apologize when law I don't mean to offend anybody. When you see young brothers, young sisters, and you just say that the way they abused their bodies, not taking care of themselves, as far as physical health, not moving much eating a lot of junk food they are talking about, they are estimating that around the world there are over 40 million children who are overly obese.
We're talking about almost a billion people around the world are obese, that is not healthy, and that is not and that is not good. And again, the point is not to shame one another. But the point is to remind one another, that being Muslim, part of being a Muslim, is that we take care of our bodies. May Allah subhanaw taala increases in understanding may Allah Subhana Allah increases in following the teachings of our Dr. Pillai Lamine Aquila, Kala Rolla Khalifa looking for stuff in the whole of Orion
Al hamdu lillahi Wa Kafa wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Mustafa, what Allah min be our third hectare for
gain, the point is not to guilt people. But what we want to do is that we want to encourage one another, that we can do better, and that we deserve better.
And that's why in sha Allah, we do have a program that we will kick start in sha Allah this evening. And the point here is that as believers, you know, sometimes it's easier to overcome some of these things. When you work in a group in how the Quran tells us to pray together, too fast together, to go to hedge together, late galley and forth by Ethan benefi are we on day one, he says, sometimes it has individuals, now we tend to be weak. But when we are with our brothers and sisters, that is when we feed off each other's strength. And that is what we want to do, Inshallah, and we have a goal. And the basic premise of this goal is, if you believe that you can actually benefit from shedding
some of the weight, and you want help, please join us in this program. By the end of the day, we want to have a goal each and every one of us and that is look, we are planning in sha Allah lose 20 pounds, lose 5% of your body fat. And the point here is that we want to initiate not just losing weight, but we want to initiate a healthy lifestyle. So please do join us. We will be led by doctors, nutritionist and people who are certified bodybuilders, aerobics instructors, you know, who can guide us in this process. We have a saying Africa. If you want to go fast, go by yourself. But if you want to go for a walk with other people, and when we do that, then we can in sha Allah
accomplish this. So inshallah tonight, our Friday night program is going to be on healthy living, and inshallah we are going to be hosting Dr. Qureshi normal correction in sha Allah, and he will be talking to us about in diabetes, but also specifically on the whole notion of eating healthy and being and been healthy. And I don't say this because, you know, I happen to be in good shape. I mean, obviously, I'm very well rounded Alhamdulillah as you can see, but the point here is that we want to we want to encourage one another in sha Allah. And we do all of us we want to be healthy, because our body is an Amana that has been given to us by by Allah subhanho wa Taala and we want to
make sure that this Amana we use wisely. Last point to keep in mind, please make sure that somehow we introduced this to our families, that we want to be Muslims, not just because we pray together, but we want to be muslims in every aspect of our
Our lives, including what we eat, how we eat, when we eat, because it's very, very easy to slip into this. And as they say, you know, bad habits falling into bad habits is like falling into a very comfortable bed, easy to get into, but very difficult to get out of. And unfortunately, this is what has happened. So with the group in sha Allah, we formed that type of accountability. Now let's hunt Allah grant us good health. May Allah Subhana Allah make us of those who care about their bodies for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah, may Allah Subhana Allah enable us to take good care of this Amana Europa Allah mean, if any of us or our loved ones are not feeling well may Allah subhanaw taala
grant them the full and speedy recovery. If any of us or our loved ones are going through difficult times may Allah Subhana Allah ease their pain. If any of our loved ones have passed away May Allah Subhana Allah bless their souls Dr. Pillai Lamine Allahu Allah in the cartoon Kareem to Hipple alpha for Anna Allahumma for regimen Muhammad Amin when a fiscal double McRobbie in the Dana and El Medina in Allahumma.
