Hadith Explanation

Restrict the Pathways of Shaitaan

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Restrict the pathways of Shaitaan by fasting.” [Ihya Ulum Ud-Deen]

The consumption of small amounts of food guarantees tenderness of the heart, strength of the intellect, humility of the self, weakness of desires, and gentleness of temperament. Immoderate eating brings about the opposite of these praiseworthy qualities.

Excessive eating induces many kinds of harm. It makes the body incline towards disobedience to Allah and makes worship and obedience seem laborious. Whoever safeguards against the evils of overfilling his stomach has prevented great evil. It is easier for Shaitaan to control a person who has filled his stomach with food and drink.
