Book Name:Allah walon kay Rozay

No matter how hot the summer is, even a single mandatory fast should not be missed at all without any Shar’i reason. If we keep in mind our pious predecessors’ manners of worship and we make just a little effort, then         اِنْ شَــآءَالـلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ, instead of facing difficulties we will feel pleasure in the fasts of summer. There were so many pious people who either would spend fasting the whole year or would spend fasting most of the days of the year, especially for the fasts in hot weather, they used to feel so much pleasure that if they had any kind of grief at the time of their death, it would have been this that they would not be privileged anymore to experience the pleasure of the fasts of hot weather.

دو جہاں کی نعمتیں ملتی ہیں روزہ دار کو

جو نہیں رکھتا ہے روزہ وہ بڑا نادان ہے


صَلُّوۡا عَلَى الۡحَبِيۡب       صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلٰى مُحَمَّد


Dear Islamic brothers! Let’s listen to more incidents of those who fear      Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ, regarding their passion for worship and fasting in hot weather so that we may also develop the passion for this.


When the time of Sayyiduna Mu’aaz Bin Jabal’s death approached, he          رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ humbly submitted a request to Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ! O Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ! I have Your fear [throughout my life] and today I have hopes from You. O Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ! You know that I did not love this world and to live in it for a long time for digging streams and planting trees, but rather I loved a long life so that I could bear the intensity of thirst in severe hot days (in fasting), to bear great pains in long nights (by worshipping) and could sit on my knees before the Islamic scholars in gatherings of Islamic knowledge. (Ihya-ul-‘Uloom, vol. 5, pp. 573)


At the time of his death, Sayyiduna Yazeed Raqqaashi رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه started weeping, he رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه was humbly asked: Why are you weeping? He          رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه replied: I am weeping for the reason that now I will not be blessed
