Book Name:Pait ka Qufl e Madina
Muftī Aḥmad Yār Khān عَـلَيْهِ رَحْـمَةُ الـرَّحْمٰن has stated, ‘The governor of Egypt bought Sayyidunā Yūsuf عَـلَيْـهِ الـسَّـلَام from an Egyptian market, paying gold, silver, musk, pearls and silk equivalent to the weight of Sayyidunā Yūsuf عَـلَيْـهِ الـسَّـلَام. At that time, his weight was 400 ratals (one ratal is equivalent to half a kilogram) and his age was only twelve years! (Nūr-ul-‘Irfān, pp. 378) Sayyidunā Yūsuf عَـلٰى نَبِـيِّـنَا وَ عَـلَيْـهِ الـصَّلٰوة ُ وَالـسَّلَام was very handsome and his body was well shaped. He was also tall in relation to his weight.

Causes of obesity
Bear in mind that taunting, laughing or hurting an obese person in any way without the justification of the Islamic law is a Ḥarām act which can lead to Hell. Further, it is not necessary that a potbelly is always caused by excessive eating, as many of those who eat excessively remain lean & thin. Studying, writing or doing official work for a long time while sitting, travelling by car or a bike instead of walking, eating food sitting in a cross-legged position, eating food sitting on chair with feet hanging, eating very hot food, often leaning the body weight towards the left side, for example, placing left hand on the floor while sitting or eating - can cause a potbelly and obesity. Further, those who do not apply the Madanī guard to their stomach and greedily devour pizzas, fried foods, cold drinks and ice cream should only blame themselves if they are overweight or have a potbelly.
Perhaps people consider cold drinks harmless. One should remember that there are about 7 spoons of sugar in every 250 ml of cold drink. As for ice-cream, it is like a sugar-bomb. An overweight person should not even look at cold drinks and ice creams as these items
