47. He did not drink milk for forty years

Sayyidunā Mālik Bin Dīnār عَـلَـیۡهِ رَحۡـمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ الۡـغَـفَّـار did not drink milk for forty years despite the desire of his Nafs. Once, someone gave him dates as a gift which he immediately gave to his students and said, ‘You people eat, I have not even tasted dates for forty years.’ (ibid, pp. 101)

May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ have mercy on him and forgive us without accountability for his sake!

صَلُّوۡا عَلَى الۡحَبِيۡب           صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلٰى مُحَمَّد

48. Meat and bread

Sayyidunā ‘Utba-tul-Ghulām عَـلَیۡهِ رَحۡـمَةُ رَبِّ الۡاَنَـام refrained from eating meat for 7 years. One day, he purchased some bread and meat. After roasting the meat, he رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه placed it on the bread. Meanwhile, an orphan came. He رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه gave the bread and meat to the orphan and began to weep reciting the eighth verse of Sūraĥ Ad-Daĥr:

وَ  یُطۡعِمُوۡنَ   الطَّعَامَ  عَـلٰی  حُبِّہٖ  مِسۡکِیۡنًا  وَّ  یَتِیۡمًا   وَّ  اَسِیۡرًا    ﴿۸﴾

And they feed, for love of Him, the indigent, the orphan and the prisoner.

[Kanz-ul-Īmān (Translation of Quran)] (Part 29, Sūraĥ Ad-Daĥr, verse 8)

Since then, Sayyidunā ‘Utba-tul-Ghulām عَـلَیۡهِ رَحۡـمَةُ رَبِّ الۡاَنَـام did not even taste roasted meat and bread. (ibid, pp. 211)

May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ have mercy on him and forgive us without accountability for his sake!

صَلُّوۡا عَلَى الۡحَبِيۡب           صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلٰى مُحَمَّد
