Abu Juhayfah Ragiyallahu 'Anhu reports that: "Rasulullah S.allallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam said: 'I do not lean when I have meals".

Commentary: This manner of eating is against humility, and it drives one to eat more. Some people are of the opinion that it results in creating a large tummy, and the food also does not digest quickly. Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam mentions himself so that he may be emulated. The Ulema write that there are four methods of leaning, and all four are included here. The first is to lean with either side of the body on a wall, pillow etc. The second is to lean with the palms on the ground. The third is to sit crossed legged on a pillow. The fourth method is to lean with the back on a large pillow or wall. All these postures are included in the above prohibition.

Get Some Help

One day a man walked into a restaurant and ordered a glass of water. He drank half of it and poured the rest on the waiter. The waiter got angry, grabbed the man by the collar, pulled him close to his face, and asked, "Why did you do that?"

The man said very apologetically, "I am so very sorry sir. Please forgive me. I can't help it. It's an illness I can't get rid of. I am so ashamed of it. How can I make it up to you?"

The waiter answered, "Haven't you seen anyone about this problem?"

The man replied, "I never thought of that. Maybe I will."

The waiter said, "Don't come back until you do get help," and the man left. About three months later the man came back to the same restaurant. He ordered another glass of water, drank half of it, and poured the rest on the waiter.

The waiter shouted, "I thought I told you not to come back until you got help!"

The man replied, "I did, and it worked out great! Now I don't feel ashamed at all!"
