Sayyidunā Imām Muhammad Ghazālī عَـلَـیۡـهِ رَحْـمَـةُ الـلّٰـهِ الۡـوَالِی has stated in Iyā-ul-‘Ulūm, ‘The one who weeps after eating and the one who plays and enjoys after eating cannot be equal.’ (Iḥyā-ul-‘Ulūm, vol. 2, pp. 8)

He رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ تَعَـالٰی عَـلَيْـه has further stated, ‘One should repent and express sadness in case of eating doubtful food so that his tears and sadness can put off the fire of Hell which he might face due to eating the doubtful food.’ The Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has also stated, ‘The meat nurtured with arām, fire (of Hell) is more entitled to it.’ (Shu’ab-ul-Īmān, vol. 5, pp. 56, Ḥadīš 5761)
