Umar on Gluttony: A large belly is a punishment, not a blessing

Al-Hasan reported: Umar ibn al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, saw a man with a large belly and he said, “What is this?” The man said, “It is a blessing from Allah.” Umar said, “No, rather it is a punishment.”

عَنِ الْحَسَنِ أَنَّ عُمَرَ بْنَ الْخَطَّابِ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ رَأَى رَجُلا عَظِيمَ الْبَطْنِ فَقَالَ مَا هَذَا قَالَ بَرَكَةٌ مِنَ اللَّهِ قَالَ بَلْ عَذَابٌ
