As a Muslim woman, it’s hard to juggle everything from cooking to cleaning to looking after the kids. So where do you get the time to exercise? This blog will inspire those women who are struggling to keep fit and maintain a healthy diet. Over the next 12 months I will be joining you in a battle to fight the fat, I will document my progress and share tips and tricks to keeping the weight off.
For those interested in healthy eating and weight loss, please join me on my journey. With Allah’s will, we will win the weight-loss battle! Our body is an Amanah (trust) from Allah SWT and we are to look after it.
On the authority of Al-Miqdaam ibn Maadiy-Karib who said: I heard the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) saying: “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.” (sahih hadith- Ahmad, At-Tirmidhi, An-Nasaa’I, Ibn Majah)
This is a sahih (sound) hadith that was related by Tirmidhi, Ahmad, Ibn Majah and An-nasaa’i:
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Food for one is enough for two and food for two is enough for three and food for three is enough for four.”
