stated: This is the state of such a noble individual عَـلٰى نَبِـيِّـنَا وَ عَـلَيْـهِ الـصَّلٰوة ُ وَالـسَّلَام who ate food to a full stomach just once in his whole life. What will be the condition of the person remaining hungry just once in his entire life? Can such a person hope to have pleasure in his worship? Eating to a full stomach causes a reduction in worship because when a person eats to a full stomach his body becomes heavy, he feels sleepy and his body parts become lazy. He cannot carry out any work despite making efforts. He lies on the ground all the time like a dead body. It is rightly said that when you become a glutton, then consider yourself like the person in chains. Sayyidunā Abū Sulaymān Dārānī رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ تَعَـالٰی عَـلَيْـه has stated, ‘I feel the most pleasure in worship when my back touches my stomach due to hunger.’

(Minĥāj-ul-‘Ābidīn, pp. 93)

May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ have mercy on them and forgive us without accountability for their sake!

صَلُّوۡا عَلَى الۡحَبِيۡب           صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلٰى مُحَمَّد

8. He spewed milk

Once, a slave of Sayyidunā Abū Bakr iddīq رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ presented some milk to him. He رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ drank the milk. His slave asked, ‘Previously, whenever I presented anything to you, you used to ask about it, but you did not ask about this milk.’ Upon hearing this, he رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ asked his slave as to where he had brought the milk from. The slave replied that during the (pre-Islamic) era of ignorance, he had treated a sick person by reciting some incantations and the milk was given to him as the payment of reciting those incantations. Listening to this, Sayyidunā Abū Bakr iddīq رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ immediately placed his fingers into his throat and spewed out whatever milk he had swallowed. After doing this, he رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ prayed to the Almighty
