Al Muwatta of Imam Malik ibn Anas

We had been discussing the conspicuous carnivorousness of many Arabs and of the Muslims of Pakistan and North India and the consequent high incidence of obesity, diabetes and cardio-vascular disease. AF had pointed out a relevant hadith[1] . I forwarded the reference to AN.
Asalaamu alaikum
...translated by Aisha Abdurrahman Bewley, Kegan Paul International 1989
49 ‘The Description of the Prophet
49.11 Eating Meat
36 Yahya related to me from Malik from Yahya ibn Sa'id that ’Umar ibn al-Khattab said, ‘Beware of meat. It has addictiveness like the addictiveness of wine.’
Insha’Allah, we'll speak later on MSN.
