Book Name:Allah walon kay Rozay

سُـبْحٰـنَ الـلّٰــه عَزَّوَجَلَّ! Have you noticed the excellent Madani thought of the pious people regarding acts of worship and their devotion to fasts that no matter how the weather was, whether it suited them or not, even in very hot weather they used to bear hunger and thirst happily. These great people رَحِمَهُمُ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَالٰی used to have only one thing on their mind, and that was to attain the pleasure and closeness to Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ. As it is obvious from the above-mentioned parable that Sayyiduna Imam Hasan Basri رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه had so much devotion to fasts, that he رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه used to observe it even in very hot weather. But unfortunately today a large number of people do not observe fasts, making lame excuses of hot weather.

Undoubtedly, the pious people had a belief that the heat on the plains of Mahshar and of Hell is far more intense than the worldly heat. The fortunate people, who after bearing worldly heat succeed in observing fasts in this world for the pleasure of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ, اِنْ شَــآءَالـلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ, will be in peace in the Hereafter. Therefore, in hot weather whether it is the mandatory fasts of Ramadan or Nafl fasts we should keep in mind that the more we feel the warmth of heat and the intensity of hunger and thirst, the more we will be rewarded, provided that we remain patient on them, اِنْ شَــآءَالـلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ. It has been narrated: اَفۡضَلُ الۡعِبَادَاتِ اَحۡـمَزُهَا, the best worship is that which has more hardship. (Tafseer Kabeer, vol. 6, pp. 685)

Imam Sharafuddin Nawavi رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه has said: If there is more hardship and expenses in acts of worship, they will have more reward and excellence as well. (Sharh Nawavi, Juz: 8, vol. 4, pp. 152)

Furthermore, Sayyiduna Ibraheem Bin Adham رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه has said: The more difficult a good deed will be in the world, the heavier it will be on the scale of good deeds on the Day of Judgement. (Tazkira-tul-Awliya, pp. 95)
