Is this a Hadith?
بؤسا لمن كان بطنه أكبر همه
I have not come across this as a Hadith of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). Imam Abu Bakr ibn Abid Dunya has recorded this as the statement of ‘Umar ibn Abdul ‘Aziz (rahimahullah).
(Kitabul Ju’, Hadith: 222)
Woe to the one whose belly is his biggest concern
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
