Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:

فَلَيُغَيِّرُنَّ خَلْقَ اللَّهِ

(Qur’ān 04:119). ‘Fa-la-yughayyirunna khalqa Llāh’, ‘They will change the creation of Allah.’ Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla says in Qur’ān ‘Aẓīmu sh-Sha’n, they want to change what Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla created. Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla created everything as beautiful. He ﷻ created everything in its place. And He ﷻ gave enough of everything to people.

Mankind does not like it and strive to make other things. They are experimenting everything. They are inventing things. And they are changing the creation of Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla. It takes shapes different than normal. In the end of times, since about thirty or forty years, mankind has become more interested in these things. They don’t like the creation of Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla. They make other things and think they will be better and more beautiful. The more they interfere, the worse it gets. They are not doing goodness. They used to say in old times, while making up one side, they break another side. And they are not just breaking but remaining under ruins themselves completely. It is in everything.

Our Holy Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam tells how people should live, how to eat, how to drink; everything is told by our Holy Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. You must eat enough and leave the table without feeling full, not overeaten. You must leave 1/3 of your stomach for food, 1/3 for water and 1/3 for air so that you are comfortable. You won’t need a diet then.

People nowadays instruct mankind according to their own minds and say, “You must eat this. You must not eat that. You must do this. You must not eat that at all.” For example, they say you must not eat bread at all, whereas bread is a blessing given by Allāh ﷻ to people. It is a barakah of His ﷻ. People have been feeding themselves bread since ‘Ādam ‘alayhi s-salām. But you leave it and you replace it with meat. Sometimes they eat only meat or only vegetables, or I don’t know what. I don’t know what they do. And then they claim they feel better. You cannot be better when you don’t eat from every favour of Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla.

You must eat from everything but not in a way that makes your stomach to be full. As our Holy Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam says, there must space 1/3 for food, 1/3 for water and 1/3 for air. And you must leave the table before you’re full. If you do this, your health will be perfect. Otherwise, if you cannot control your ego and overeat, neither diet, nor regimen, nor medicine will help. You will live on with an illness or too much weight. You will try a different method every time by saying, “This doctor told us this. This professor told us that. This man or that woman said it is better this way”. You will spend your whole life experimenting, whereas if you listen to the words of our Holy Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam, you will be at ease.

And as we said, they are adding drugs or I don’t know what in the food Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla created. They are changing their nature. They are playing with the beneficial things created by Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla and making them harmful. And that becomes another illness and problem for mankind.

As long as mankind is with Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla – Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla is The Creator. Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla has shown everything we must do through our Holy Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. Those who follow him ﷺ, who believe in him ﷺ and obey him ﷺ will be in comfort. They will be in comfort both here and hereafter. May Allāh ﷻ make us from them. May He ﷻ let us be able to do so inshā’aLlāh.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
