Book Name:Allah walon kay Rozay

in front of him at the time of Iftar, he رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه recalled that verse again. He رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه did not eat a single morsel and said: Get this food away from me. Likewise, on the third day, he رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه intended to observe fast without eating anything.

When his son saw his condition that he رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه spent three days without eating and drinking anything, he got worried and went to the renowned saints of that time Sayyiduna Saabit Bunaani, Sayyiduna Yahya and other Islamic saints رَحِمَهُمُ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَالٰی and humbly said: Your honour! Please come to help my father as soon as possible. He has observed fast for 3 consecutive days by drinking only a few mouthfuls of water and has not eaten a single morsel of food for 3 days. Whenever we give him food for Sahari or Iftari, he recalls this blessed verse of the Holy Quran:

اِنَّ   لَدَیۡنَاۤ   اَنۡکَالًا  وَّ  جَحِیۡمًا  ﴿ۙ۱۲﴾    وَّ  طَعَامًا  ذَ ا غُصَّۃٍ   وَّ  عَذَ ابًا  اَلِیۡمًا  ﴿٭۱۳﴾

Translation from Kanz-ul-Iman: Indeed We have heavy shackles and a blazing fire. And food that chokes, and a painful punishment.

(Part 29, Surah Al-Muzzammil, verse 12, 13)

 

As he recalls this blessed verse, he refuses to eat food. For Allah’s sake! Come with me quickly and solve this problem. Having heard this, all these great people came to Sayyiduna Hasan Basri رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه. When the time of Iftari arrived, he رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه again recalled the same blessed verse and refused to eat food, but upon the insistence of Sayyiduna Saabit Bunaani, Sayyiduna Yahya and other Islamic saints رَحِمَهُمُ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَالٰی he رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه with great difficulty agreed to drink water containing Sattu, thus upon their insistence on the third day he رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه had Sattu to drink.

مجھ کو بُھوک و پیاس سہنے کی خُدا توفیق دے

گُم تِری یادوں میں رَہنے کی سَدا توفیق دے

صَلُّوۡا عَلَى الۡحَبِيۡب       صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلٰى مُحَمَّد
