“SubhanAllah! Does a Muslim eat until he is no longer able to eat?”

Muhammad ibn Wasi said:
“Whoever eats little will understand and make others understand and will be clear and humble. Overeating weighs a person down and keeps him from much of what he wants [to accomplish].”
Al-Hasan Al-Basri:
The test of Aadam (as) was food and it is your test until Qiyamah.”
And, it used to be said:

Whoever takes control of his stomach gets control of all good deeds.”
And:
Wisdom does not reside in a full stomach.”
One day, Al-Hasan (r. a) offered some food to his companion who said: “I have eaten until I am no longer able to eat.” To which Al-Hasan said:

“SubhanAllah! Does a Muslim eat until he is no longer able to eat?”
Allah grants this world to those whom He loves and those He does not love but only grants hunger to those whom he loves.
