Assalaamu alaykum Scholars. I have a question which has been bothering me recently. I am currently seeking knowledge, or this is what I intend to do, and I have a doubt regarding the manners of the students of knowledge regarding eating. After reading and listening to biographies of great scholars of the past, I came to know that they would hardly eat anything, just enough to keep themselves alive. Sometimes I try to emulate this behavior, and it does in fact help me to concentrate in the prayer, amongst other things. Could you explain the manners of eating of a student of knowledge in a detailed manner while also giving me examples? May Allaah bless you, Scholars.
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger.
We advise you to read the chapter about the Etiquette of Eating in Imaam An-Nawawi's book Riyaadh As-Saaliheen, which has been translated into the English language.
Also, please refer to fatwa ">163527.
Allah knows best.
