  • Eating and drinking habits of the Prophet صل الله عليه وسلم

    Reference: Zaad Al-Ma’aad 4/205

    The Prophet (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) used to order [the people] with supper, even if it be a handful of dates. He said,

    Abandoning the evening meal causes senility [1]
    Abu Nu’aym narrates, that the Prophet (sal allahu alayhi wa sallam) would forbid sleeping immediately after eating (i.e. sleeping on a full stomach), and he would mention that this causes the heart to become hardened.

    For this reason, one of the recommendations the doctors would give for a person who wants to preserve his health, is:

    ‘walk a short while after having eaten even if it only be a hundred steps, and do not sleep immediately after having eaten as it is very harmful.’

    As for the Muslim doctors, they said: ‘one should pray Salaah after eating, so that the food is able to settle properly in the bottom of the stomach and is more easily digested.’

    It was not from the Prophet’s guidance to drink [water] after having food as it spoils it, especially if it is warm or cold; doing so is very harmful…

    …It is also disliked to drink water immediately after exercise, when tired, after sexual intercourse, after or before food and after eating fruit – even though drinking water after some fruit is easier than others.

    Also, [drinking water] after answering the call of nature and waking up from sleep.

    All of this negates good health.
