عنه، عن بعض أصحابنا، عن الاصم، عن عبد الله الارجانى، عن أبى عبد الله، عن آبائه (ع)، قال: قال أمير المؤمنين (ع): ما اتخمت قط قيل: وكيف لم تتخم؟! قال: ما رفعت لقمة إلى فمى إلا ذكرت اسم الله عليها.

36. From him, from one of our companions, from Al Asam, from Abdullah Al Arjany, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (asws), from his (asws) forefathers (asws) having said: ‘Amir Al-Momineen (asws) said: ‘I do not overeat at all’. It was said, ‘And how come you (asws) do not overeat?’ Amir Al-Momineen (asws) said: ‘A morsel does not get raised to my (asws) mouth except that I (asws) mention the Name of Allah (azwj) upon it’.
