Book Name:Pait ka Qufl e Madina
Perhaps, these people will only realise this danger when, Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ forbids, they suffer from any lethal disease.
Danger of fake Kattha
It is highly likely that Kattĥā is not produced in Pakistan. The greedy people who do not care about the detrimental consequences of misdeeds in the world and Hereafter add the colour used in leather-dyeing to sand and sell it as Kattĥā. As a result, Pān eaters in Pakistan become victims and suffer from various diseases.
Taste on tongue and throat only
The taste of food lasts just for a few seconds whether it is a simple barley bread or a buttered one. As soon as the morsel goes down the throat, the taste of that morsel ends. When a person eats in excess, he feels the taste of food only for a few seconds on his tongue but he may have to face its long lasting religious and worldly harms. If somebody ponders calmly, he will realize that facing prolonged accountability in the Hereafter and embracing chronic and lethal diseases just for a few minutes of pleasure is not a wise act. Therefore, it is safer and better to eat less by applying the Madanī guard to the stomach. Sayyidunā Abū Dardā رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ has said, ‘Fulfilment of a desire for a few moments’ pleasure causes prolonged grief.’

This is the reality of that delicious morsel. This point can further be elaborated with the help of the following parable.
* A thick brown liquid used in Pān.
