3349. Miqdam bin Madikarib said: “I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) say: ‘A human being fills no worse vessel than his stomach, It is sufficient for a human being to eat a few mouthfuls to keep his spine straight. But if he must (fill it), then one third for food, one third for drink and one third for air.’” (Sahih)
Eating Cheese: Criterion Fit
Our Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) would partake in eating cheese and as you’ve learnt from what we’ve said before, cheese has a number of benefits besides taste.
If you’re a serious Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and/or MMA competitor that has his or her eye on the prize with goals of filling the Copper Box year after year, you need to eat to win which you’ll hear again and again. Yes, the hard work is in the hours of drilling and putting together your own unique play box but if you neglect your diet you neglect the engine that needs to be optimised for game day.
The times we live in are tough and as the reality of the current economic squeeze on family finances becomes more evident, more measures need to be taken to cut costs for many families. As Husbands, fathers and sons of the household, it is usually up to us to bring the bag home and so we start to cut out the unnecessary subscriptions and unneeded purchases. But, should your fitness be on that list to get the cut? Are there other options to consider instead of a gym membership? In this post, I’d like to talk to you about how you can maintain your fitness while we chart these recurring and turbulent times with the help of a pair of trainers and a kettlebell.
e fitness and sporting worlds look very inviting, especially to the youth. No doubt, fitness and sport should have a place in all of our lives in some form or another but for the majority of people that take the pursuit of training, exercise and sport to be a career there will be very little acclaim to their name. In this post, I’d like to explain why personal training isn’t for you if you want to get to the bag and why you need to put a passion for helping people before getting to the bank.
Chapter 6. Eating While Reclining
3262. It was narrated from Abu Juhaifah that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “I do not eat while reclining.” (Sahih)

dly a day in which I wouldn’t buy a load of penny sweets on my journey back home. Most of us can recount our youthful days eating eggs and marshmallows with friends but some of us haven’t outgrown the sweet sugar fix just yet.
You may have noticed an increase in your weight over the last couple of years as many men have and you may be trying to figure out what you can do to get back to lean status. There are options from increased exercise (physical activity), fasting, reducing calories from food and drink or a combination of all of these. What you eat is a major part of the struggle and our Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) as well as his companions and those after them would give the advice to be careful of how one fills his stomach.
Leading a fitness lifestyle sounds great to most men but when it comes to the hard work of actualising that lifestyle we can fall flat on our faces. Figuring out how to reduce the foods we enjoy eating is difficult, waking up early to prepare meals feels like torture, getting into a routine of exercise is some self-inflicted punishment and on and on. The key is to set goals that fit your lifestyle.
It’s all the rage some would say; go online to blogs, social media sites and news articles and they all have their hands in the pot of intermittent fasting. It’s nothing new, fasting has been a part of human history for a long time but when celebrities and health-conscious money makers see a good thing the world starts to take notice.
