Fullness results in Laziness, Witlessness, and Sleepiness

Imam ash-Shafi’ee (rahimahullaah) said:

“I have not been full (completely filled my stomach) for 16 years because fullness results in laziness, witlessness, and sleepiness. In addition, it weakens one’s ability to worship.”

[Source: Mentioned by Ibn Rajab al-Hanbali (rahimahullaah) in his book “Jaami’ al-‘Uloom wal-Hikam” 2/474 checking done by Shaykh Shuaib al-‘Arnaoot. Abu Na’eem also recorded it in “Hilyatul-Awliyaa” (9/127)]

Arabic Text:

قَالَ الشَّافِعِيِّ :

مَا شَبِعْتُ مُنْذُ سِتَّ عَشْرَةَ سَنَةً إِلَّا شِبْعَةً اطَّرَحْتُهَا، لِأَنَّ الشِّبَعَ يُثْقِلُ الْبَدَنَ، وَيُزِيلُ الْفِطْنَةَ، وَيَجْلِبُ النَّوْمَ، وَيُضْعِفُ صَاحِبَهُ عَنِ الْعِبَادَةِ.
