Book Name:Pait ka Qufl e Madina
Dear Islamic brothers! Did you see that the Auliyā of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ do not eat for pleasure? Instead, they eat to gain strength so that they could perform worship. They are blessed with spiritual strength without eating and drinking by the special mercy of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ. Sayyidunā Abū Sa’īd Khazzār عَـلَـیۡهِ رَحۡـمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ الۡـغَـفَّـار travelled for 12 Manzils without eating and drinking (by the spiritual strength bestowed upon him by Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ!) The distance covered in one day is called a Manzil, which implied that he travelled for 12 days without eating and drinking anything.
20. Hiding to avoid eating
Sayyidunā Abū Sa’īd Khazzār عَـلَـیۡهِ رَحۡـمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ الۡـغَـفَّـار has stated: Once I was travelling with a caravan in the state of extreme hunger. During the journey, a garden of date-palms appeared. My Nafs desired to eat dates but I refused to fulfil its desire. The caravan stayed and camped by the same garden but I went to the jungle where I hid into sand so that my Nafs would not repeatedly demand me to eat dates. After a little while, one of my travelling companions came to where I was hiding. He took me to the camp. I asked him as to how he got to know that I was there. He replied that he heard a voice from Ghayb saying, ‘One of my friends is hiding in the sand, go and bring him with you.’ (Tażkira-tul-Auliyā, vol. 2, pp. 36)
May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ have mercy on them and forgive us without accountability for their sake!
