Women and Food [Man Talk] Select our words
It is reported that Al-Ahnaf b. Qays – Allâh have mercy on him – said:
Stay away from mentioning women and food in our gatherings, for I hate a man to constantly describe his private parts and his stomach.
It is an aspect of higher conduct and religiousness that a man [sometimes] leaves eating food while he desires it.
Abû Bakr Al-Daynûrî, Al-Mujâlasah wa Jawâhir Al-‘Ilm 3:44, 45.
