The Diet of the Prophet ﷺ – Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq

September 19, 2019


Umm al-mu’minīn Aisha says,
“Never for two days in a row never for two consecutive days did the Prophet ﷺ ever eat barley.” So they would mainly eat barley. If you want to be healthy and live healthy, follow the diet and the
sleeping pattern of Rasulullah ﷺ Truly The Prophet ﷺ
if he would eat all this talk about carbs and protein so if any carbs he would eat it would be barley but even then on occasions.
He loved meat, but that’s no reason for excessive consumption because Aisha relates that the Prophet ﷺ as well as they the family would only occasionally and rarely receive meat.
In one hadith of Bukhari she says for two whole months for two whole months the fire in the
hearth of the home of The Messenger of Allah ﷺ would not be lit because there was
no solid food to cook for two whole months. All our food was dates and water for two months and occasionally we would receive
a gift of milk. That’s why when they would have meat The Prophet ﷺ loved meat but Aisha herself explains in one hadith that it would only occasionally come to them. This is why he loved meat, so in this hadith Umm al-mu’minīn Aisha says, “For two consecutive days
never would the Prophet ﷺ never did the Prophet ﷺ eat to his fill
from barley for two consecutive days until the day he
left this world.” And in another hadith related by other Sahaba, “Never
did the Prophet ﷺ fill his stomach,
never did he eat to his fill from barley or from meat unless he was a guest
with other people.” So if he was eating with other people as a guest
then maybe he would eat a bit more but normally he would never eat to his fill.

  1. The Prophet (SAW) loved meat and how I wish that I could have prepared a meal for our beloved (SAW) for him to enjoy…

  2. If we could eat like this then we can save lots of money to donate to many people who can't even get single bite food in several days, I remember a hadith when Umar (r.a) cries just seeing the living style of Prophet and on that he (s.m) says, "O Umar, our reward are not in Duniya, I am just like a travelers who need shade and enough food", SubhanAllah, this is how great our prophet was. Forgive me if there are any mistake in my Hadith quote.

  3. Thanks for reminding this Sunnah, i will start consuming meat only once a month, and then after sometime reduce it to family functions and gatherings.

  4. IF ALL THE WORLD WOULD FOLLOW ALQURAN there wouldn t be no obesity diabetes and many other diseases. I maried to muslim and im glad beacouse once i read the Quran i found out its the way all people should live its a book that guides and teaches you how to live life not wasting it. Wasting and enjoying is easy but living is hard and thats why so many fake muslims are present on this planet becaouse everybody just do or read what likes from QURAN but never understand the whole book which tells you the truth. I did whole month of ramadan fasting without problem even under severe hard daily activities but somehow the heart was in right place to follow the diet .

  5. Thx for the advise but barley is the healthiest thing I know to eat …😶😓😒 #TalbinaClub4eva! 😅😅😅

  6. I wish I could hug the prophet pbuh so hard I wouldn't let go I would just wanna hug him and kiss his hands and spend my time with him
