Book Name:Pait ka Qufl e Madina
Beware! There are many people who are seen humiliating themselves but this is a means of respect for them.’ (Al-Mawāĥib-ul-Ladunniyyaĥ, vol. 2, pp. 123)
Dear Islamic brothers! May our lives be sacrificed on the glory and greatness of the Merciful Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم! He صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم had great passion for remaining hungry but we, on the other hand, the so-called devotees, are deprived of this Sunnaĥ. If our meal is ever delayed or it is not to our liking, then we start to argue with our family-members. If only we would also adopt intentional hunger and, when feeling intense hunger, gain the honour of tying a stone around our stomach with the intention of acting upon the Sunnaĥ. I wish, if only I were not a human but a stone of the blessed street of the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. Alas! If only I were the stone lying in the path where he صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم would pass blessing me with kissing his sacred soles. I dare not have the desire to be the stone tied on his blessed stomach, but at least if only I were the stone lying next to the sacred one picked up by him, and as he would stretch his blessed hand to take that sacred stone, I would have the privilege of kissing his blessed hand!
Hunger of Prophet Mūsā عَلَيۡهِ السَّلَام
When Sayyidunā Mūsā Kalīmullāĥ عَـلٰى نَبِـيِّـنَا وَ عَـلَيْـهِ الـصَّلٰوة ُ وَالـسَّلَام arrived at the well of Madyan, he was so weak that the green colour of the vegetable he had last consumed was visible from outside his blessed stomach. (Shamāil-e-Rasūl, pp. 121)
It is also narrated that he عَـلَيْـهِ الـسَّـلَام did not eat anything during the forty days when he عَـلَيْـهِ الـسَّـلَام had the privilege of speaking to Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ. (Iḥyā-ul-‘Ulūm, vol. 3, pp. 91)
