of water. Sayyidunā Ibrāĥīm Khawā رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه became astonished and intended not to eat that food as it was apparently sent for an unbeliever. The monk said: Yā Sayyidī! Please eat and listen to two glad tidings. The first is that I embrace Islam, he then recited the Kalimaĥ. Secondly, you hold a very high status in the court of  Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ. When I was in prostration, I made the following Du’ā, ‘O Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ! If Muhammad صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is Your true Prophet, bestow upon me two pieces of bread and two glasses of water and if Sayyidunā Ibrāĥīm Khawā رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه is Your friend, please bestow two more pieces of bread and two glasses of water.’ Having finished the Du’ā, when I arose from the prostration, I found this tray of food and drink here. Listening to this, Sayyidunā Ibrāĥīm Khawā رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه ate the food. اَلْـحَمْـدُ لـِلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ the new Muslim also gained a high status among the Auliyā. (Kashf-ul-Maḥjūb, pp. 433 to 435)

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

صَلُّوۡا عَلَى الۡحَبِيۡب           صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلٰى مُحَمَّد

Dear Islamic brothers! Auliyā (often) bear hunger for many days. They are blessed with divine help and food is sent for them from Ghayb. By the mercy of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ and the blessing of the company of Sayyidunā Ibrāĥīm Khawā رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه even an unbeliever not only embraced Islam but also attained sainthood. Everyone should endeavour to join the company of the pious and refrain from evil company. A adīš states, ‘A good companion is the one whose sight reminds you of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ, whose speech increases your (good) deed and whose deed reminds you of the Hereafter.’

(Al-Jāmi’-uṣ-Ṣaghīr, vol. 2, pp. 247, Ḥadīš 4063)
