Intentional hunger

Dear Islamic brothers! Although it is permissible to eat until one is full, countless religious and worldly benefits lie in applying a Madanī guard on the stomach. Abstaining from food in compulsion when it is not available is not something remarkable, but refraining from eating and staying hungry for the pleasure of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ when food is available in abundance, is indeed an extraordinary feat. It is stated that the Noble Rasūl صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم would intentionally remain hungry. (Shu’ab-ul-Īmān, vol. 5, pp. 26, Ḥadīš 5640)

Neighbourhood of the Holy Prophet صَلَّی اللّٰہ تعالٰی علیہ واٰلہٖ وسلَّم in Paradise

Indeed, intentional hunger is a great Sunnaĥ of our Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم and words cannot express the excellence of Sunnaĥ. The Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has stated, ‘He who loves my Sunnaĥ, loves me, and he who loves me will be with me in Paradise.’ (Mishkāt-ul-Maṣābīḥ, pp. 30)
