    O children of Adam, take your adornment at every masjid, and eat and drink, but be not excessive. Indeed, He likes not those who commit excess.

    And when it is said to them, "Do not cause corruption on the earth," they say, "We are but reformers." (11) Unquestionably, it is they who are the corrupters, but they perceive [it] not. (12) - Surat al-Baqarah

      I remember reading about bodybuilding vs weightlifting and which was closer to the Sunnah. Personally, I'd rather BE strong so I can carry my groceries up the stairs to my door rather than LOOK strong but be too puny and have to take a lift.
      if you find the article again post it here as would love to read

          To be big and cut naturally is a rare thing, so that strongman physique is more easily attainable. Again, how much eating goes into all of this, though, is it healthy or in line with a Muslim mindset?.
          I've grappled with this too. You end up filling your stomach way over a third and might put off fasting sunnahs. Are you allowed to over-eat Islamically so long as you justify it by 'using it up' at the gym?

              Personally, I've tried to strike some sort of balance. I don't know the answer to this, but I'm assuming if one were to train with a true pure intention and eat accordingly for strength and size, it might be something acceptable, maybe even recommended, eg, someone working in security? A mujaahid (?)?

              This is just speculation, on my part, though, and it might be a little different for men and women.

              (Ps, not sure why my phone keeps autocorrectting the word filming to filiming :] )

                Your phone has a Somali accent.
