Book Name:Allah walon kay Rozay

Dear Islamic brothers! In the Holy Quran people who fast are praised and are given the good news of being forgiven and being blessed with great reward, similarly blessed Ahadees are also enriched with the treasure of excellence of fasts which contains different good news for fasting people. In this regard, let’s listen to three blessed sayings of Beloved Mustafa صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم:


1.         The person who observes a mandatory fast in the path of Allah, Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ will keep him away from Hell at such a distance as is between all seven earths and skies. (Al-Mu’jam-ul-Kabeer, vol. 17, pp. 120, Hadees 295)


2.         The person who observes a fast on any day for the pleasure of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ, his end (death) will be on it and he will enter Paradise.

(Musnad Imam Ahmad, vol. 9, pp. 90, Hadees 23384)


3.         The person who observes fast for a day for the pleasure of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ, Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ keeps him away from Hell at such a distance as a crow covers by flying continuously from its birth to its old age until it dies.

(Musnad Imam Ahmad, vol. 3, pp. 619, Hadees 10810)


Regarding this Hadees, a renowned commentator, a great thinker of Ummah, Mufti Ahmad Yar Khan رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه has said: The age of a crow is 1000 years and it flies very fast. Here it has been stated to mention the extreme distance from Hell that if the baby of a crow starts flying after its birth and continues to fly until it dies i.e. for a thousand (1000) years, then imagine how far it can reach. Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ will keep the fasting person at such a distance from Hell.

(Mirat-ul-Manajih, vol. 3, pp. 197)
