Is this narration authentic?

إن أهل الشبع في الدنيا هم أهل الجوع في الآخرة غدا

(Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 11693, Targhib, vol. 3 pg. 137. See another version of the Hadith here)


Those who are [always] satiated in this world, will be hungry in the Hereafter.


The commentators explain, ‘A full belly makes a person tired. Those who are always satiated, tend to become lax in ‘ibadah. Those who eat less, are energetic which will lead to carrying out more ‘ibadah. This in turn, will be stored for them in the Hereafter.

(Faydul Qadir, Hadith: 2246)
