The worst container man can fill is his belly


Is this a Hadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) or the statement of a pious person?

“Man does not fill a container more evil than his belly”



This is a Hadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) recorded in Sunan Tirmidhi and Sunan Ibn Majah, on the authority of Sayyiduna Miqdam ibn Ma’di Karib (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2380 and Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 3349)
