A constant fight!

Do’nt judge a book by its cover! Same way don’t judge someone from his outer appearance! I dont mean clothes!  The biggest issue for all: WEIGHT! Some worry about being over weight..some worry about why others are underweight!

Some are the cause of their weight..others cannot help it.

1. Underweight

These kind of people eat too little or eat too much but throw up voluntary. They want to be skinny. But they dont know that they are harming themselve in this process. They are not taking care of the blessing given to them by Allah. We don’t survive to eat but we need to eat to survive, thats why Allah has provided us with different kinds of food. We should eat the required amount of it. By not eating at all, or by eating but vomitting it out has become a trend! Media has portrayed the most beautiful women to be those who are size zero! In an attempt to become like them many young girls go on a crash diet without thinking of the consequences. Some who love food, continue eating to fulfill their urges but have a solution for it…guilt free eating..that is eating everything and then throwing up!

Ofcourse, there are other people too, who eat the required amount but due to their body type they dont gain weight. I’m not critizing them!

2. Overweight

These people have such a body type that they keep on gaining weight. Some will lose if they have the will-power. Others will constantly be in a fight to lose weight. While others don’t bother much. There are also some people who don’t eat that much but they still are overweight! It could be because of a medical reason or because of wrong choices of  food.

These are also the kind of people who are bullied as a result of their weight. Who are constantly reminded that they are fat whether directly or indirectly. They become the subject of the jokes. It is forgotten they these people feel hurt too and become depressed as a result. But everyone continues to pinpoint.

Just because a person is overweight, it does not give anyone a right to joke about him! Everyone who is overweight, does not mean keeps on eating! Because of his weight, his good qualities are often overlooked. He is compared with others. This results in low cofidence, low self-esteem, isolation, etc. People’s constant pinpointing might result in making the person gain more weight as there comes a time where you get so tired of listening that you stop caring and don’t bother much about your increasing weight. Some will feel satisfied and not fight to reduce.

I feel if you are happy with yourself, then don’t care about others. If you are willing to lose, then have a firm decision to do so. If you get help in reducing, it will become easier. This is only for those who are overweight. As we clearly know that being overweight is not an easy thing to cope with as there will always be problems medically.

It is reported that the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) said, “Allah does not look at your outward appearance and your wealth, rather He looks at your hearts and deeds.” (Sahih Muslim #1356)

Allah says in the Quran:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لا يَسْخَرْ قَومٌ مِنْ قَوْمٍ عَسَى أَنْ يَكُونُوا خَيْرًا مِنْهُمْ وَلا نِسَاءٌ مِنْ نِسَاءٍ عَسَى أَنْ يَكُنَّ خَيْرًا مِنْهُنَّ

O you who have believed, let not some people mock at other people, for they may be better than them, nor (let) women (mock) at women who may be better than them.  (Surah Al-Hujurat-11)
