glorified Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ and drank the remaining milk reciting بِسۡـمِ الـلّٰـه. (Ṣaḥīḥ Bukhārī, vol. 7, pp. 230, Ḥadīš 6452)

سُـبْحٰـنَ الـلّٰــه عَزَّوَجَلَّ! This is one of the great miracles of the Holy Prophet  صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم that all the Aĥl-e-uffaĥ who were nearly seventy in number could not finish a small bowl of milk. Referring to this very incident, A’lā arat رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه has written the following couplet:

Kyūn janāb Bū Ĥurayraĥ رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهُ! Tĥā woĥ kaysā jām-e-shīr

Jis say sattar Ṣāḥibon kā dūdĥ say munĥ pĥir gayā

O Bū Ĥurayraĥ رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهُ! How was the sweet beverage!

That filled the mouth of seventy companions with milk

Independence from people

Sayyidunā Abū Yayā Mālik Bin Dīnār عَـلَـیۡهِ رَحۡـمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ الۡـغَـفَّـار has stated that he once told Sayyidunā Abū ‘Abdullāĥ Muhammad Bin Wāsi’ رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه, ‘O Abū ‘Abdullāĥ رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه! Fortunate is the person who is content with just a little amount of grain and is indifferent to others.’ When he heard this, he said to me, ‘O Abū Yaرَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه! Glad tidings are for the person who is hungry in the morning and evening and the Almighty عَزَّوَجَلَّ is pleased with him.’ (Iḥyā-ul-‘Ulūm, vol. 3, pp. 90)

Ineffective advice

It is narrated that the advice of the one whose stomach is full has no effect (on others) and when he is given advice, his mind refuses to accept it. (Nuzĥa-tul-Majālis, vol. 1, pp. 178)

Smell at time of death

Amīr-ul-Mūminīn, Sayyidunā ‘Umar Fārūq A’am رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰی عَـنْـهُ has stated, ‘Refrain from filling your stomach as it is a burden in life and foul smell at the time of death.’ (Iḥyā-ul-‘Ulūm, vol. 3, pp. 90)
