Are you hungry?

19 Nov

Prophet SAW once saw Abu Bakar and Umar RA sitting and inquired about their situation. They replied that nothing has brought us out except hunger. The three visited a companion who provided them with some water and dates. After eating, Prophet SAW said:

لَتُسْأَلُنَّ عَنْ هَذَا يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ، أَخْرَجَكُمْ مِنْ بُيُوتِكُمُ الْجُوعُ، فَلَمْ تَرْجِعُوا حَتَّى أَصَبْتُمْ هَذَا، فَهَذَا مِنَ النَّعِيم

Certainly you will be asked about this on the Day of Judgement. Hunger caused you to come out of your homes and you did not return until you had eaten this meal. So this is from the delights. [Muslim]

Hasan Al-Basri said, “Verily, Allah will ask us about the halal things we enjoy, so what about the haram!”.
